Isn't it true that cats have pea sized brains?

Perhaps that is why they never listen, lol

  • The brain size of the average cat is 5 centimeters in length and 30 grams. The average cat's brain accounts for 0.9 percent of its total body mass, compared to 2 percent of total body mass in the average human. Cat brains have been shown to be more similar to human brains than dog brains, and the part of the brain for emotions is the same in both cats and humans.

    I don't have it has much to do with brain size lol kids don't listen well either

  • Honestly, I think the person who decided that one better examine the size of their own brain. And does that include all the big cats too? I wouldn't want to be the one to tell them that! LOL

  • it doesn't matter the size of their brain;; they are highly intelligent. have u seen a cat hunt? or a group of big cats- they all have a special role to play in a take down of a prey that is alot bigger than they are?
