A new study focused on memory in cats. BBC sums it up like this:
Japanese scientists say cats are as good as dogs at certain memory tests, suggesting they may be just as smart.
A study - involving 49 domestic cats - shows felines can recall memories of pleasant experiences, such as eating a favourite snack.
We already know that dogs have memories like these and it's a big part of the way humans think. Now there is conclusive proof that cats are probably as smart as dogs. But you probably already knew that if you're a cat owner.
