I hope you are taking the time to check out some of the neat sites, interesting resources, updated information, delightful cat stories, etc. that I bring you Monday through Friday.
While conducting research for the blog site this week, I came across a fun quiz. I took it on behalf of Lily. You might want to answer the questions for your cat. In the end, you will find out something about your cat’s IQ. I learned that Lily is pretty much average as far as intelligence goes. But then, maybe if there were different questions posed, she could test higher (or lower).
I’m happy with Lily and Sophie as they fill my world with humor and make me smile.
Here’s the link to the quiz. Let me know how your cat did. http://www.catchannel.com/cat-iq-test.aspx?utm_source=SilverpopMailing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CC_NL_2016-08-16%20(1)&
Simon Teakettle III (Terzo), whose photo you used in this post, was very smart, but not according to this test. For example, he learned not to do some of the behaviors described in this quiz, because I didn’t want him to race to the door to ask to go out (he was an indoor-only cat), or to hide when I took out the carrier.
I’ve trained the fourth Teakettle (Q.T. Penny) the same way, and although she was a year old when I adopted her, she’s learned all the tricks Terzo used to do. She contributes to the Simon Teakettle blog at: http://SimonTeakettle.com/blogsimont.htm
