    I started to take it with a certain kitty in mind, but it was dreadfully slow, so gave up.

    Buddy got a 23.

    10 – 30 points: When it comes to bell curves, your feline’s where most cats are: right in the middle. Your cat has average intelligence and can learn a few tricks, but has no desire to take apart the cat water fountain and reassemble it.

    There were a lot of questions that didn't have a good answer for Bud though.

    Of course in my book he is the smartest, most handsomest and loveable cat.

    Also, I loved the orange kitty they used for the test graphic.

    Eve - 32 out of 40: apparently we're living with a feline Einstein ... no surprise! She knows just what to do to get her way and with finesse. Love my girl.

    Trixie and Mikey are smarty pants (I knew that already) with Abby and Flutter being on the higher end of average. Harry, Mystic and Pouncer are just your normal boys.

    Sometimes I think Trixie is waaaayyy too smart for her own good.

    REALLY slow! I'm on it now; I'll let you know. Some of the questions just don't apply - who uses a can opener for canned food anymore?

    LOL! I thought the same thing. Friskies in gravy comes in a pouch and if it is one of the cans they have the pop top. (Love the person that invented these!)

    I use Firefox and while it wasn't lightening fast, it was not creeping slow, either. Got through it all in about 6-7 minutes for each cat. I have three, so I just averaged their responses and got a 25. Mac and Kimba are my most intelligent (Mac's on the upper end of normal, Kimba is a kitty Einstein), while Ming is on the lower end of normal. The questions that got me were the ones about teaching my cat tricks. Are they for real? I've never taught any of my cats anything! They pick up things by observing, but I've never been able to teach any of them "tricks".
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!
