Burning Questions: Are dogs smarter than cats? Which animal is most intelligent?
IT’S an argument which has raged between pet owners for years, so let’s have another go at settling it.
Are dogs smarter than cats?
Canines are supposedly man’s best friends, our dependable companions that can be trained to carry out various useful tasks as well as to perform tricks.
Felines on the other hand are much more independent creatures which need less looking after and have an impressive ability for survival.
According to some reports, cats’ lack of social skills may count against them, with scientists finding dogs’ intelligence has evolved quicker and they have developed bigger brains through their more friendly nature.
Do you think as a rule dogs are cleverer than cats, or is it the other way round? What do you think makes one more intelligent than the other?
