Test Your Cat’s IQ

CAT GRAD,jpgDo you know how smart your cat is? One way to test his intelligence is to look at his ability to discern object permanence. This is a test that was designed to test cognitive development in children but you can apply it to cats as well.

Show your cat an object in plain view such as a toy. Then hide the toy by placing a solid object in front of it like a file folder. If your cat looks behind the object for the toy rather than thinking that it just disappeared, he can be ranked with the intelligence of an 18 month old child. This is pretty good!

Super smart cats are capable of thinking like a two year old child. They will be able to follow the trajectory of an object that moves out of view. In other words if a live mouse runs under your sofa, your cat should be able to predict where he will come out and pounce on it as it reappears.

Don’t underestimate the intelligence of your cat.
