Who's Smarter: Dogs Or Cats?

Well, if the Wall street Journal can't decide, neither can we! Check out this essay written by two animal researchers from a recent Wall Street Journal, for proof positive (despite the title) that the jury's still out on which species is smarter-but it does provide a review of some of the latest research on dog and cat cognition that is quite eye-opening.


Let us know what you think. In general, which species do you think is smarter, dogs or cats?
We'll vote first and go with dogs as the smarter species. But hey, even though I'm forced to live with a cat, this is my blog after all!

P.S. Speaking of animal cognition, here's a heads up: In a few weeks we'll be bringing you a review and giveaway of a wonderful new book: Animal Wise-The Thoughts And Emotions Of Our Fellow Creatures by science writer, Virgina Morell. Ms. Morell is the author of three other books and is a regular contributor to National Geographic, Science and Smithsonian, among other prestigious publications.
