Scientists at Oxford University conducted a study a while back and found that dogs are  smarter than our feline friends. As an owner of two wonderful cats, I may challenge this. I believe that cats are not as social as dogs and there fore may be perceived as not as intelligent as our canine friends. I do believe that they are quite intelligent and simply do their own thing.  The researchers say that because dogs are more social, they have bigger brains. The study, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, charted the evolutionary history of various mammals’ brains over 60 million years and found a link between the size of an animal’s brain in relation to its body and how socially active it was. The study also states that more interaction is good for the brain and because dogs interact more with humans, they are more intelligent. Never-the-less both dogs and cats have wonderful qualities and make great pets.

Remember, your pets count!
