Mapping the Feline Brain: How Smart Is Your Cat?

cat health brainCat owners have looked at their pet and wondered how smart the cat is. Some of the cat’s behaviors may often seem beyond his/her capabilities.

Key takeaways:

  • Cats have smaller brains but the brain’s surface folding is quite similar to that of human being’s. Cat brains have cerebral cortices and lobes similar to human brains by up to 90 percent.
  • Brain structure and surface folding is a more important indicator of intelligence as compared to brain size.
  • Cats have the cerebral cortex that is responsible for memory, meaning they can store both short-term and long-term memory. In essence, memory increases the ability to learn.

This exchange of information gives your cat a valuable perception of his surrounding environment and allows him to react to and even manipulate his environment.
