Smart dogs? Phhht!! If following your "master" is a sign of intelligence, then dogs are Einsteins, but I'd say that the free-spirited cats are smarter with their "I'll do what I
want to do" attitude ;o)
. My cat has a seemingly endless vocabulary, everything from "food" (which results in a race for the kitchen) to "veterinarian" (which puts her into hostile "catch me if you can" mode) to "lap" (which is recognized as the "now he's going to read a book, and I'll snuggle up in his lap" signal). Since my father's cat understood everything they said, my siblings had to spell "FISH" (his favourite food). When my brother started school and started with the alphabet he used to say "A-B-C-D-E-F-I-S-H" :)

Dogs understand vet and hate it too.

LOL.....YES.....kitty's are quite brainy too, as I tell my husband when he thinks they are not.....I remind him, THEY have trained him to 1) feed them twice a day, two different kinds of food; 2)clean up any hair they leave around; 3) spoon and shovel their um...lavatory droppings....into a sack and dump them in the garbage...... and it goes on.....YEAH.....they're dumb....as a fox.
