We kitties know which species is the most intelligent on this planet (clue: not humits or goggies...)

Problem solving kitty at work...

What a day yesterday was going to be a normal quite day, you know one of those when I'm simply trying to convince one of my humits to provide me with more nutrition than the normal portions when out of the blue humit2 got really annoyed with something she read...To be honest I don't think I've ever seen my humit having steam coming out from both ears so what she was reading must had being really bad news...
What she was reading was an article about how some silly humits did some sort of research and they found out that goggies have evolved a bigger brain because they are more social than kitties (yeah right!) while the brains of more solitary mammals such as cats, deer and rhino, grew much more slowly during the same period. According to that research we are not therefore as clever as dogs because '...dogs are quite good at solving problems, which gives credence to the traditional image of the cunning fox which is a member of the same family. Dogs descended from wolves which appear to have the biggest brains as they live in large family groups...' (
Of course this is just a lot of rubbish and silly humit talk since everybody with a bit of intelligence knows that brain size doesn't really predict intelligence in a species...take a good example here, the humits themselves, they have quite big brains in proportion to their body size and who are the only species that they actually believe in their own superiority and cleverness...everybody else on this planet knows that humits are not that clever after all...a good look through history would tell you why...they are the only species that have managed to destroy the entire ecosystem of their own planet and even to destroy many of their own species members through wars and conflicts over silly and unimportant matters like ownership of land that was never theirs in the first place...(belongs to the the planet sillies, you only live here for a short period and you don't own anything not even your own wormies and other microbes are having it after you've long gone), issues about silly humit religions and beliefs...along with other selfish and really unimportant matters...not that clever those humits after all...
As for us, well, we are the intelligent species here as we have humit servants who have trained them after years of domestication to look after us, we do what we want to and we can live our own lives without having a lot to worry about...besides we have allowed humits to take us into their homes and allow them to treat us in some cases as equal to them (I know, a bit degrading at times...) as nobody really wants to live in the wild these days and to have to hunt for food and look for shelter when silly humits can easily provide all these..Besides our brains are big enough when you compare them with what little goggies have in their place on their heads... and in the right proportion with our bodies...any bigger and we wouldn't have being able to move properly and to catch prey, with a very big head and brain...silly!
Also as my humit pointed out '...other studies have also often suggested quite the opposed ....that cats are not only very intelligent but actually having an IQ which is only being surpassed only monkeys and chimps (and humits I'd have added her myself!). Cats can think and adapt to changing circumstances and they can easily learn by observation, imitation, and trial and error (wrong kitties don't make errors...that's a humit term, we kitties never use it!) and some studies seem to have shown that cats have been shown to exhibit greater problem solving abilities than dogs and that a cat's recall can last as long as 16 hours, exceeding even that of monkeys and orangutans....the anatomy of brain of cat is very similar to the human brain, whereas the anatomy of brain of a dog is not very similar to that of a human brain. Both cats and human beings have same regions for emotion in their brain. The brain of an adult cat weighs about one percent of its body weight while the brain of an adult human being weighs about two percent of its body weight. The brain weight to body weight ratio in cats is greater in cats as compared to dogs (see long comment at:
With other words...yes we are a lot more intelligent than dogs...and these silly humits that said otherwise need to have their own brains examined as their own brains don't seem to be working as well as ours...Meoow...humit feed me nooow...I'm hungry!

Being the alpha cat in the house...

Just holding the stairs for you humit you can come downstairs's safe!  

Sometimes it seems that I'm being accused for no apparent reason, simply for just is expected from me in the first place...for example I often find myself being accused by my humits of all peoplez of bullying the other two...shhish kitties who share the same environment as me and who eat most of the food that either way would have come my way anyway...shishh...pests I say!
Of course this is not true...I do not really bully anybody...kitties or humits...I'm simply looking after them, whether they like it or not! You see everybody needs somebody to look after them... for example to check anything new that comes into our home and to make certain that there are no threats involved, funny smells and flavours that is...You see humits are not really good at looking themselves properly...They tend bring home new things without a lot of thought or without properly checking them, they even allow strange other humits coming inside without actually thinking whether it is a good idea or not....and even worse they even let those other two to do whatever they want with no restrictions whatsoever, to eat a lot of my food and to use my litter boxes! is a miracle that humits in general can manage survive on their own in the wild...I guess this is why we are so important to them because they really needs us...Humits you see, need some control in their lives and this is why I'm so important and useful to them... because I tend to keep everything in order and humits in control...You see they need me to remind them when in the morning they need to get they don't ever listen to their own alarm as they usually turn it off and go back to sleep...while I'm there to meow constantly till they get up...they also need to be reminded when to clean my litter boxes...again I need to meow after I've used it so they can clean it my own purrsonal standards. They also need to be reminded when it is time to feed I'm always around when they are in the kitchen so they won't forget to feed me...three times a day isn't a good or practical idea for pussykitties like me who needs more frequent refilling of their food bowl than other kitties...especially those two that eat my food in my home. Of course they also need to be reminded when they have to entertain me...any time in the day or night when I'm bored and of course it is important that they do keep me entertained even if they are appear to be busy...they usually aren't...they just think they are...
So you see they really need me to be around and in charge of everything in the house, even to taste at sometimes what they eat so to make sure that they are not eating anything that they aren't supposed to...Being the alpha purrson in their day to day lives it is important especially for humits who otherwise wouldn't have being able to function my own and yours I'm sure!

Humits can be sooo silly at times....or...there are not enough kitties to educate them!

What it's supposed to do again humit?
Sometimes the things I hear or see on humits TV thingi really make me angry and very's really so sad that there are a lot of humits who treat their kitties friends and all other non humit but friendly species out there with cruelty like they are not creatures with feelings and their own thoughts and perhaps different awareness of their world around them...You know something humits you aren't the only species which can do intelligent thinking...the rest of the natural world can too you know....and even, at least some species, solve some of the most difficult problems you huminity kind can't...But I don't want to mention today how ignorant and silly some humits really are but simply to point out at some cases in which a bit of knowledge and education could easily have saved some kitties' lives...I mean , come on humits, you can't really allow little kitties to roam in your streets where cars and probably other humits can easily harm see kitties are like your own little or 2 legged kitties, wherever you prefer, it's all the same...they don't know much about your real world and most importantly about the dangers out there...they have no sense of fear or danger when cars are passing...or some humits want to pick them up and take them away from their homes...they are not aware that not all humits are nice or kind to all creatures...some humits are really cruel and mean. Especially those kitties that they have left their mommy and brosses and sisses at a very early age and therefore they haven't yet learned everything there is to know about their world around them...there is their humits responsibility then to teach them about the world around them before they are allowed if they will be allowed to go outside on their own. A few months old kitten doesn't understand that you can't cross a humit road when there is car coming and if that car doesn't see the is sad news all way round...My humits thing that humit cities and busy villages are not places for kitties that have learned to trust humits or that they are used to an easy life indoors...especially when the kitties live close by to busy roads...As for me I like it indoors...I've never tried to ventured outside and when I put a paw or two outside I quickly went back inside again to my own and trusted home environment...really I don't want to go outside...I've got my humits who are serving me well, two other silly kitties which I keep for bullying and lots lots of toys, good views to the birdies outside to the garden...and even better snoozing places...don't need anything else...really...purrrs for now!
