Recently my friend Katie found a cat intelligence quiz and was a little put out because she didn’t score very well. But how could she — the quiz was written by a human and humans don’t really know that much about cat intelligence. We know what makes us smart… and we also know what makes humans smart in relation to us cats. So I thought I would come up with an intelligence quiz for humans. Let’s see how yours does! (Note: make sure the page loads completely before you begin, or your humans may seem dumber than they actually are!)

Famous SpokesGoat Pricilla says
It seems the Farm cats have the publicist very well trained!
Anna's Adorments says
What a rude awakening to find out that I am only an average human!
Great fun though.
Small Town Mommy says
I came out as Meh. I am sure it is because I haven’t purchased a special cat bed but that’s because the kitties like to snuggle at night.
Oui Oui says
Hey, our mom did pretty good! Of course, there is lots of room for improvement! She tried to do a avatar of you. Come and see if it passes your inspection!
Fraidy Cats says
hmmm…for the sake of not embarrassing our mom, we won’t say how she scored…let’s just say we have our work cut out for us, mol!
Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
Love that look on your face Sparkle! Interesting quiz, it said my Human was pretty smart…of course I am a relentless trainer…
The Island Cats says
Well, our mom scored “pretty smart.” That’s because we trained her well. Great test, Sparkle!
Sweet Purrfections says
Our human scored “pretty smart.” I guess we’ve trained her well. Of course, we have Sweet Praline to thank for training her early!
Truffle and Brulee
Katie Isabella says
Mommy is pretty smart! I’m a good trainer!
Sparkle! Me was very surprised that my human got such a high mark! Me is not going to slack off on the training though. She might lapse.
Spitty the Kitty says
My Human did pretty well on this quiz, better than I think she really deserves. But that’s okay–I am sure there is PLENTY of room for improvement. That was an excellent quiz, by the way. How did your Human rate?
Spitty the Kitty says
Sparkle, I still have to go read today’s post, but I meant to say yesterday: No, I don’t think it is weird that you talk to your toys. I think it *might* be a little weird if they start talking back, though.
Noir the Texas Tabby says
Average is what my human is. I think I was actually being a little darn on some of those questions. Maybe Tommy (the human will get a clue) that is about ME!
verrry clever…wish my huMom knew how to do stuff like this quiz…nice! Oh yeah, and she and my Dad are totally over the top smart…they are doing anything that will help me in my recovery process both mental and fitness ‘cuz they rescued me in Jan from a shelter…I luvluvluv my home!
Mom rated purrty smart. I do have her well trained! MOL
Texas, a cat in New York says
My human came out pretty smart.
I guess I might have been a little harsh with her. Or my no-need-to-beg-me-for-purrs technique is starting to work!
Thanks for this test!
I’ve got her trained very well!
— hehehehehe —
Cathy Keisha says
OK, TW scored mediocre. She must’ve lied. Some answers kinda didn’t apply. Like she’s always petting and touching me but never tries to pick me up so we had to ay she pats me on the head sometimes. I never scratch on the furniture so we made up that answer too.
That was fun and it showed that we’ve trained our Mommy very well! We should get treats for that!
Emma and Buster says
just as we thought. our humans are average and could use a ton of retraining. whew, thanks sparkly for this quiz.
Deb Barnes - Zee and Zoey says
So fun! There was never any doubt I would score high, as clearly my gang of seven has had me trained for years now….
Layla Morgan Wilde (Cat Wisdom 101.com) says
We have trained Layla to a 90+ but there is always room for improvement!
Our Mommy was very smart only because we are good trainers!!MOL…Hope you all have a happy week ahead, sweet friends!…xoxo…Calle, Halle, Sukki
Devoted to Willow says
Now this is the right type of IQ test for human instead of those ones that test their *knowledge* in human stuff this one has the burning question of cat intuition solved. My Mom scored an above average on the test I think it is the feeding and no restriction policy that makes me a good trainer as she can not say no to my meows.
Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger says
Super Hurrah! My mom scored Pretty Smart. My clicker training is paying off! xoxoxo
Wow, I did not know you could clicker train humans – I will have to try that!
Ryker's Boyz 'n' Allie says
Mommy cheated! She did! She must have! That’s the ONLY way she woulda scored above average. Truth.
Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) says
Our Human is “Pretty Smart”. Would have been higher but for that last question about the litterbox. He cleans the 4 boxes evry day, (more than “a few times a week” but not “stands at attention waiting for use”).
We’re going to work on this average stuff. Must have been the locked-out-of-the-bedroom and the way-too-many-kisses-and-stuff that did her in!
Caren Gittleman says
This was soooooo much fun!!!!!! My Mom did really well too! She graded as “Pretty Smart” and I am a good trainer.
Thanks for this fun quiz!
I came out average but that is so wrong! My kitties don’t have a lot of store bought toys because they don’t play with them. That track thing – collected dust. Scratching post – avoided like the plague. Feather thing on a stick – meh. Bags and boxes – not so much. Crumpled up paper Yay! Crumpled up losing lottery tickets – Yay! Dry cat food bits – the best! And yes, – I pick up Frankie and snuggle her and she hates it – too bad! The Beebster – always attached to a human…I could go on here – but just ask Frankie and BB – they’ll tell ya that they are spoiled rotten!
MOL! My human only scored Average too and she was not happy about it, either.
Yeahhhh! IÂ´m a pretty smart human to my kitties!!!!
Zippy, Sadie and Speedy says
Hmm, it says our mom is pretty smart…but more importintly, we are good trainers. We prolly should give her a break, she does learn pretty fast and alla her frends say we is spoiled.
Glogirly & Katie says
Well when I saw this I KNEW that Glogirly HAD to take the test. I needed revenge after all…given my horrible cat IQ test scores and all.
So I think she lied because she scored average. Meh. I would have been a little harder on her. More points should get knocked off for all the times she tries to pick me up when she knows better. But she does keep my salmon cabinet stocked…so I don’t really want to rock the boat.
; ) Katie
Pee Ess from Glogirly – SUCH a cool test! Very fun and great descriptions. …of course the geek in me is all in awe of how you actually set it up and made it function! ; )
The test part was pretty easy – it is a WordPress Plugin! Actually finding the right plugin and putting together the extra pages and the time involved in hunting out the right photos was the hard part! And then my human needed an extra plugin to make it all work the way it should.
BTW, it is actually pretty hard to score smart in this quiz! And a little bit easier to score dumb — although I can see that so far none of my readers (at least the ones that dared comment) have scored dumb! I am impressed with the ones who scored pretty smart — MY human only scored average.
Random Felines says
it said our human was average – but we think we may have to give her a pass since she does help out those pesky foster kitts.
Actually mine didn’t do too bad, but we will have a review later!
Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) says
I did this test and found out that I am an excellent trainer. It also said that my humans were pretty smart, but I think that the jury is still out on that one.
Miles Meezer says
OH MY BAST. The mom did the cat intelligence test for ME and I am AVERAGE. She lied. I am far superior.
The Creek Cats says
MOL! That was a fun quiz…..looks like our human could improve!
Hope you had a great Memorial weekend!
Thanks so much for the birthday wishes for Saylor!
The Creek Cats
Miles Meezer says
meh, our’s is average and could do better. YES, we should get another the mom who is better.
Cat's Cats says
How devastating to find out I am only average when I thought I was a good cat mum! 🙁
Nerissa's Life says
EXCELLENT QUIZ! Turns out my peeps are pretty smart. ‘Bout what I thought… purrs
CCL Wendy says
I may not have ranked right at the top, but I came out pretty good. What a great ‘Quiz’ and obviously written by a kitty in-the-know!
Fuzzy Tales says
So our mom turned out to be “pretty smart” too, which just means that while we have her trained fairly well, there must be room for improvement on her part!
Yup, we have our Mom well trained. Great test Sparkle. Gotta keep that mom on her toes.Take care.
Eric and Flynn says
We’ve done a good job on our mum, she is surprisingly smart.
Oh I had fun playing this! I’m glad I am smart 🙂 My boys are very very good trainers!
Daisy the Curly Cat says
My human is pretty smart… which proves I am a good trainer.
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
Our mommy was average too … Maybe this will make her work harder!
Hannah and Lucy says
She’s average which makes her better than we thought. Ooops no Mum we didn’t mean it we were joking!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
