Are Cats Smarter Than Dogs?

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (07-21-2018) #580: Featuring Marc Bekoff, Mieshelle Nagelschneider, and Duncan MacVean. Are cats smarter than dogs? Marc Bekoff talks about this question by discussing the Harvard psychologist who postulates that there are “multiple intelligences in humans — so this question isn’t valid since each species intelligence serves their particular needs and has to be evaluated in those terms; Mieshelle Nagelschneider is a cat behaviorist who discusses the use of pheromones in dealing with many kinds of cat stress and how Comfort Zone diffusers achieve a more mellow feline environment; Dr. Duncan MacVean talks about some of his adventures from his book MY PATIENTS LIKE TREATS: TALES FROM A HOUSE-CALL VETERINARIAN.
