After finding out how smart certain dogs were, some of my readers were upset by the lack of information pertaining to feline intelligence. Some wondered if there was even an IQ test for us, and to be honest, I had not held on to hope. However, after some investigative work, I am pleasantly surprised to let you know that you have some choices when it comes to testing your cat's intellectual capacity!
1. Wuzzle.org has a paper and pencil cat IQ test that you can take. I am a bit doubtful as to the validity of this test as it only has eight questions. Surely, there's more to life than eight measley questions.
2. This IQ test involves a hoop and some treats. I'm curious what makes these scientists think that my girth is going to fit through a hoop. Granted, I have been dieting, but I'm not certain I even want to jump through a hoop for my human pet. Should that be held against me?
3. The Cat I.Q. Test by Melissa Miller has tremendous potential to be worthwhile. I might just purchase this book for my human pet as a gift for Christmas. Well, truth be told, it's more for me than it is for her, but she won't even recognize the hidden motive.
Tests have to be used many times before they can be proven to be reliable and valid so why not help out the cause? Try some of these tests, and feel free to come by and share your results with us here!
