Dog and cat lovers seem to relish unending debates over which animal is "smarter." Dog owners often cap their arguments with the fact that dogs have the ability to perform tricks, while cat people counter with the claim that their pets are too intelligent to perform on command. In truth, such methods of pet comparison are useless animal-world versions of mixing apples and oranges. Dogs are motivated by a strong need to follow and please their masters in order to receive praise. The solitary cat answers to no one; nevertheless, if trainability may not be the feline's forte, cleverness and adaptability certainly are.
