Target Speaks: Humans Are Much More Intelligent Than Some Cats Give Them Credit For

Hello, it's me: Target!  I'm purring to see you again.

Au always says humans are stupid.  He orders ours around and plays tricks on them. 

I know humans aren't as bright as cats, which is why I hit the Help button on mummy-cat's keyboard for her.  But I think humans are much more intelligent than some cats give them credit for.

Look at T-man for example.  He doesn't say much except for, "Hey there, Mr Snizzles!" and "You're a stripey old cat!" but when I sit on top of him and let him give me squizzles I can see he is furry happy. 

I think Au is underestimating human intelligence.  After all, when I play with my T-man, who knows whether he is not amusing himself with me more than I with him!

I dunno. Maybe my SS is extra stupid. She just give me pets and kibbles instead of treats when I do my special mieow.

Yeah....never underestimate the humans. Like, whenever I threaten to run away, my Mama would sweetly say: Do you think you can survive on the streets? How to reply to that? purrr.....meow!

Ours are at least partially trainable...your T-man must be particularly bright!

Our human is somewhat useful, considering we have no opposable thumbs, but we wouldn't go so far as to say she's smart or clever. ;-)

Hi Trget! We think you are right, and that humans are smarter then a lot of cats give them credit for. Most of the time they know when we are hungry and feed us, or they know when we need to be petted and played with and they do that. Sure, they do a lot of dumb things too, but they still do get some things right!
