My dad is of the opinion that cats are “smarter” than dogs. Not coincidentally, he and my mom own a couple of cats, one of which was sitting next to his chair at Thanksgiving dinner.
Dad decided to share some turkey with the cat. He stood up with a piece of turkey, showed it to the cat, than walked out to the kitchen and dropped it in the cat’s food dish. When he returned to his chair, the cat was still sitting there. Never moved.
“That is one stupid cat,” I said.
“Well, he’s three-quarters blind,” my dad said, although he didn’t say how he could possibly know that.
“If my dog was here, he would have jumped up and eaten your whole dinner the second you left the room.”
