RE: IQ test for cats!
Heh, I don't believe in IQ. Nevertheless, my cat got an average score. I'm not surprised, frankly. Smile
I can't remember. I took the test a whole day ago, after all.
My favourite colour is green, my favourite number is 19.

What exactly score did your cats get?
Hey everyone, if you have a cat, please share the scores! Smile
Take the test again really quick if you forgot the score.

RE: IQ test for cats!
Since I have 4 cats, I had to answer based on what most of them do overall. Some of the answers didn't really fit what my cats would do, so I had to fudge a bit. So my answers are anywhere between a score of 8-10. I think they are a little smarter than average, but yeah, I may be biased. =)

RE: IQ test for cats!
My cat scored an 11, which is average! She scored mostly neutral on the questions, though it stands to reason whether she doesn't do some things simply because she doesn't feel like it. For example, she definitely knows her name. When I call her, sometimes she runs to me, but usually she just looks at me, meows, and then stares at me until she figures out whether or not there's any good reason for her to come over to where I'm sitting (and there usually isn't, by her standards...). She is not very patient about being told what to do. However, she is extremely playful and manipulative with her toys. I've never tried to teach her a trick... I have a feeling she wouldn't be too thrilled. Wink

My cat scored a 17 - so I guess he's pretty intelligent! Most of the answers on the quiz were © for him. He is very playful and inquisitive. Smile

RE: IQ test for cats!
My cat scored a 15, so I guess she's on the low end of gifted, a B+ student. She was just one answer away from being average but barely made a 15. I probably have a critical tone right now, but Dolores chewed up my basil plant that I grew from seeds, so I'm a little cross with her.

RE: IQ test for cats!
My cats can feed themselves and I don't use a pet carrier so I'm not sure if this test is even applicable to my cats. I'll just assume they're smart since they do learn how to do many things from me and our other animals. They both learn pretty quickly.

RE: IQ test for cats!
I have 2 cats. I first applied the test to the smartest one. She got 16 points. That would explain why she takes up a lot of my time. She is pretty clever when it comes to opening doors and getting cat food out of a closed package. She is able to play on her own with her cat toys and interacts with me when I want to join in. Since I have this cat I do not really need an alarm clock. She wakes me up every morning and makes it very clear that she wants a cuddle and food afterwards. If I do not open the door for her, she will find a way to open it herself. At times she almost seems human! She has got quite a large cat vocabulary that goes way beyond 'meow' and she never hisses!
My other cat would score average on the same test. To make sure I took the test again and applied it to my other cat's behaviour. The second cat would score 9. I do not know whether this test has been scientifically proven but it does confirm my cats' behaviour and my personal assessment of their intelligence.

I had to do it two times Smile My older cat got 14 points, and my younger one got just 6 Big Grin
I don't think this test gives very accurate results but it was fun to do Smile

RE: IQ test for cats!
Haha I'm kind of embarrassed to display my cat's score. Let's just say he's an amazing cat and I don't care if he doesn't learn tricks or doesn't know how to open a cupboard Tongue

RE: IQ test for cats!
I did not know that there are IQ tests for cats! Anyway, I guess cats to have variable intelligences. I think having a cat with a proven high IQ might give you bragging rights! Can you really see the difference in behavioral pattern between cat with a higher IQ and one that is average? I mean can you really say, "This one's the smart one?"

RE: IQ test for cats!
I will have to try this out on my black cat when I get some time, she's a complete goofball. I've seen her do some stuff that had me thinking that she might be a little *special* if you know what I mean. For example, she likes to sleep in the window. But when it's closed, she will still try to jump up into it, bouncing off the glass and hitting the floor all confused. I've also seen her roll off of stuff when she's laying on her back and stretching.

RE: IQ test for cats!
Thanks for this post! That was really cute! My cat scored like a little genius, as I suspected. Especially on the can opener thing. I love tests like these, they're fun to do! In my opinion there aren't any stupid animals anyways. They all get an A+ from me! Thanks again for the post it was really fun to do. A lot of the things my cat did were on the test.

Thumbs Up  RE: IQ test for cats!
How fun! My cat got a 12. However, many of these questions seem rather human biased. For example, I can tell that my cat recognizes her name. But how does her coming or not coming tell me her intelligence? That is more of a test of obedience. And from my experiences with humans, intelligence and obedience rarely go hand in hand. Tongue

Same with not doing tricks. Just because a cat won't do a trick doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't understand what it's being asked to do. I could mean that it's just not interested. Cats are like that.

Also, my cat is a runt that lived in a shelter for three years. Her automatic response to food pouring is running away, and I suspect that it has more to do with not wanting to have to fight other cats for chow than it does with smarts.

Anyone else notice questions like that on this test? Or ones where none of the answers were correct for your cat?
