I'm not sure cats are really smarter then dogs IQ-wise. I just find dogs are too.. erm... 'slavish' for my taste.
Cats have a will of their own, if they don't want to do something, you can go stand on your head all you want... they just won't do it.
Forgot to mention in my last comment.
One of my cat's also plays fetch, bringing me her mousy, have me throw it and bringing it back again
And neglected to mention Louise, (rip sniff..) One of the pet rats I had a couple of years back.
She loved to go with me into town sitting on my shoulder
and despite that they are naturally incontinent she would let me know when nature was
calling so I could put her somewhere where she could poo/pee.
I have to say though she was the only rat I had which had so much personality.
She also loved to cuddle, putting her cheek to my cheek and such.. such a sweet little critter... Hope she's having a blast in rat heaven, she
imho life wouldn't be worth it without my furry friends lol
Read another news item a week or so ago posted here in holland, a woman was choking on a piece of food when her dog knocked her over on the floor and
jumped on top of her untill the food came loose, and started to lick her face after. She probably wouldn't have survived it without the dog, as there
was noone else around to help her and she was panicking.
