|An example of the different intelligences of our two cats.
||[Feb. 6th, 2014|10:02 pm]
I've mentioned before that Nick and Nora are both smart, but in very different ways: Nicky has more "human-like" intelligence, and Nora has more "cat-like" intelligence.|
And we just had an example.
We got one of those cat toys that you fill with treats, and then the cats have to figure out how to get the treats out. They both smelled the treats, and were looking at the toy. Nora is right now sitting there, watching Nicky, waiting for him to get treats out. When he does, she darts in and grabs it. Not all of them; they're each getting about half. Nicky by using the toy; Nora by using Nicky to use the toy.
