Dogs have applications for their intelligence, cats are like the really smart people you went to school with that don't apply their intelligence and complain about everything. It also depends on the breed, I guarantee most cats are smarter than pugs, but they probably aren't smarter than corgis or any of the other smart breeds.
Tldr; cats are smart, lazy neckbeards with no purpose outside of being a companion animal.
@Mantis Tobaggan, ugghh, c'mon human, just gimme my meowy mixxies!
@Mantis Tobaggan, hey my pug is smart 😤
@swooz, my cat is smarter
@swooz, no it’s not and it can’t breathe
@tampon thief, hey man. U didnt see my pug. Its smart and can breathe. Otherwise he would have been dead after 5minutes of being born
They’re both intellectually lacking in different ways, but still good boys/girls
I’m not saying that dogs are better than cats. No wait that’s exactly what I’m saying. Get fvcked pussies
Dogs are smarter.
Dogs can tell the difference that they're Dogs and we're our own different species. Cats think we're just bigger, dumber cats. That's why they're always trying to feed us with whatever they catch outside. Also, evolutionary speaking, they're not as evolved to depend on us as much as dogs.
@LyricTerror, so dogs are dumber because man could be them into permanent puppies.
But cats just tolerate us because we feed them.
I know some dumb fish that can't ride bicycles.
But in the debate between intelligences, we should look at the fish who drown.
If you die in your house with your fluffer, they'll die to cause you didn't feed it.
If you die in your house with a cat, you're the food.
Boom cats are smarter
@That one lurker, I'm just going with what someone smarter than me said.
But yeah, why is also dog intelligence mostly based on how well they respond to commands? I would say my husky could learn just as many names for toys as a border collie (considered the smartest breed) but he chooses not to, and for me I consider full autonomy over their own body and mind to be true intelligence.
In the end, they're all smart good babies and let's love them.
@LyricTerror, cats know everything that you say, they just ignore it, cause they think they're better then you.
Still sounds rather smart.
@That one lurker, dogs will eat their dead owners as well lol. Boom, Cats aren't smarter.
@Mantis Tobaggan, ah f@ck...
(I can't admit when I'm wrong, so I need to pivot the conversation to make me right.)
Umm... you know who else love dogs? Hitler... Hitler thought dogs was smart.
@That one lurker, man I got a dog and a Volkswagen, sh!t I must be a nazi
@Mantis Tobaggan, naturally. Cats are smart enough to know to hate Hitler.
Boom, cat fact own
@That one lurker, actually got my cat to listen to me when I tell him to lay down. If I yell his name he comes running too.
All I’ll say is I’ve never seen a cat with a little whiskey barrel under it’s collar
@JAMA, Well I've never had a dog bring me the gift of a live bird from outside.
I love them both. Eat my ass
Cats have more powerful brains than dogs, but dogs are social creatures and can learn from other members of their pack (which can include humans). So, left to their own devices, cats are smarter. But a dog will observe you and learn from you and can be trained by you, so with a human's help a dog can solve problems that a cat never could.
