Cat Intelligence — 7 Comments

  1. While this doesn’t necessarily speak to the intelligence of domestic cats reading ‘The Tiger: A true story of vengeance and survival’ will leave you with a deep and somewhat chilling appreciation of the intelligence and tendency towards vengeance among big cats. In a broader sense the need for a tigress to train her cubs and the comparative helplessness of untrained adult tigers when it comes to hunting speaks pretty clearly to intelligence. You can’t learn things like hunting without a degree of intelligence and you certainly can’t teach it.

  2. I often wonder about my cat’s intelligence. I think Gabriel shows high intelligence in being able to open a window, after watching Michael do it to let him out.

    It would be interesting to be able to test it, but actually low on my list of priorities for her. My top priority is maintaining her health, and emotional balance.

    Thanks for all the information.
