I was reading the latest issue of Cat Fancy and you’ll never believe what I saw!
Humans finally accept the truth!
Wait a minute. I missed part of that.
Oh well. At least this article about ASPCA feline behavior counselor Katie Watts is still a good read.
And I still contend we cats are a lot smarter than people, whether they think so or not.
I ask you:
Who trudges out at 6:00 in the dark and cold to earn the green papers?
Who luxuriates in bed till 9:00 or 10:00?
Who has to clean and cook and wash up?
Who spreads his or her furz everywhere and has meals lovingly prepared and served two or three times a day?
Who cleans the toilet?
Who uses the litterbox without a care in the world?
Fraidy Cats! says
hee hee! You’re funny, Sparkle! We liked the secret photo messages 🙂 It’s about time people realized how smart we are!
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, and Hollie
Katz (And Other) Tales says
Show me a human who gets served 3 squares a day plus treats and who is not in a pen of any kind and I’ll concede that person is smarter than a cat.
Caren Gittleman says
Sparkle I couldn’t agree with you more!
We definitely outsmart them.
How else could you define how we magically get them to take us in, love us, feed us, and care for us from kittenhood to seniorhood?
We have a great racket!
Noir the Texas Tabby says
Of COURSE, we’re smarter than them….how would the humans think they are so important if it weren’t for us. We flip on that purr, they are putty in our paws.
Just the way it oughta be!
Toby & Leia says
Of course we’re so much smarter!!
I can tell that cats are smarter than humans acause I have my mama wrapped around my little paw!
Jake & Angel says
You know how I know that cats are smarter than humans? A cat would NEVER buy that crazy Franklin Mint basket-vase thingy they have advertised in that issue!!
We totally agree that kitties are smarter than people! You don’t hear kitties worrying about eating too many treats or napping too long. How smart is it to be afraid to indulge in yummy things or nap the day away? Sheesh.
You got that right, Sparkle.
Devoted to Willow says
The Cat Fancy editor must have missed the type-o and forgot to delete the extra word.Right?
CCL Wendy says
They say you can’t always believe what you read, but in this case it’s right on!
Emma and Buster says
WE think so too Sparkle. Humans aren’t quick to acept defeat though.
Emma and Buster
I agree; you’re one of the smartest!
Katnip Lounge says
Humans are such dimbulbs they are incapable of comprehending our brilliance.
Milo and Alfie says
We agree! Best not tell ’em though … they can get touchy over critter-cism!
Cat's Cats says
The only people who don’t think cats are smart are those sorry souls who have never had a cat in their lives!
Deb Steckly says
I agree. You certainly are. Loved this months Cat Fancy.
You know she’s right. Just because other humans might not believe her doesn’t mean she’s not ahead of her time…
Baby (Lisa Lisa and the Cat Jam) says
I think the first way you read that sentence is the correct way.
Pricilla - Famous SpokesGoat says
Ah-hem. Goats too!
I think you are absolutely correct Sparkle…no doubt about that one!
Cathy Keisha says
Oh, we are smarter, no doubt. Except for Hope, who never knew he was supposed to come out of the rain cos cats hate water. MOL! He might’ve had a dog gene in him.
I AM SO SMART! S-M-R-T.. doh!
Hannah and Lucy says
Humans always think they know best but we cats know we do.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
The Monkeys says
We find it funny that humans need to publish this kind of thing in a magazine to feel better about themselves, when all cats need to do is just know that we’re superior. Silly humans!
Fuzzy Tales says
You’ll get no argument from us that we’re smarter than humans. You won’t even get an argument from our own human on that. 😛
Yeah, just leave that last part out!!
There is no doubt about it, cats are much smarter than the hooomans. We will instruct our assistant to go read that article. I mean those humans aren’t smart enough to sleep all day and get their meals served to them 16 times a day. What could be better?? Take care.
The Island Cats says
You had it right the first time, Sparkle. Humans just aren’t that smart to realize that we are smarter than them.
Spunky Doodle and Manny says
We agree with you Sparkle. Our people do a lot of dumb things. We are definitely smarter than they are.
Heather and Fluffy says
Depends on which people you talk to! Heather has always thought that cats were extraordinarily intelligent! Ah well, I suppose it is folly to imagine that humans will EVER recognize our superior intellect. Perhaps it’s better that way? Purrs!
Mr Puddy says
I’m on Your Side, Miss Sparkle : )
By the way, Did your human read that page yet ?
If not, May be you can shred that part off …heh..heh
