Dog! I love all animals, but dogs top the list! Maybe I'm partial because a dog saved my life! No--I've owned dogs and cats and over the years several dogs have truly been members of my family and when they died one would have thought a child had died in my home!
Cats--or rather, one particular cat that has reincarnated endlessly with my wife and me (beginning many years before we even met). Here's a list of the bodies we know about for sure:
1. Bibs...baby cottontail rabbit. 2. Max...baby gray squirrel. 3. 20 Year Mo...big orange and white cat, lived to age 20. 4. Harvey...gray and white cat. 5. Moe Key Man...looked exactly like 20 year mo, lived to 11. 6. Gato...gray kitten, growing like a weed.
Could explain how we know he's the same Soul, but that's another topic entirely.
So which do you think is smarter, cats or dogs? I know that all their personalities differ, and it depends on the breeds. But overall, I'd have to go with the felines, cats. Yes dogs have a higher social intelligence...
