  • Dogs learn and respond to commands; cats usually dont. But cats are cunning hunters with a boundless curiosity. To settle this debate, PBS NewsHour posed the question to three scientists  a neuroscientist, a dog cognition expert and a cat behavior and cognition researcher.

The results are based on brain cells alone. So, although dogs have greater potential than cats, we have no proof they are using their brains' full capabilities. In truth, there is no better animal at being a cat than a cat, and nothing can be a dog quite as well as a dog.

Dogs are often seen as smarter than cats because they can do more jobs for humans. But humans bred dogs for millennia to do those very jobs. Cats have also made themselves useful to humans by killing pest rodents.

actually both are smart. sometimes cats can be smarter than dogs, sometimes dogs can be smarter than cats. but if your dog is running into walls than yes a cat would be smarter than a dog in that situation.
