Chris really is a very smart cat but does that make him bad? hmm…
I recently got a nice review for the Bad Cat Chris book on Amazon by someone named Mia (If you are reading this Mia, thanks for the review and the insight). She said she had a cat like Chris and suggested that smart cats misbehave more because they need more mental stimulation.
I have not heard this before and I don’t know if it is true but it makes sense. Chris is probably the smartest cat I have ever had and has a knack for figuring things out that most cats won’t even attempt. I can’t tell you how many doors he has figured out how to open or how many things he has managed to get on top of where other cats would not even think to go.
I used to let him outside on “supervised” visits and he learned that going under cars meant I couldn’t catch him…

that can be true… I’ve heard that about dogs too… and Dr. Freud said the same about humans :o)
I wonder if Einstein was a troublemaker.
We think there’s some truth to this. A stimulated mind keeps you out of trouble.
I know I don’t eat as much when I am using my brain for something other than menial tasks. I wonder if that’s related.
Yep..without a doubt all the troublemakers here and i include dogs and sheep..are smart..really smart….yikes..:)
You have sheep troublemakers? I can’t imagine that. I would assume all sheep are… well… sheepish.
It is true! Smart cats do need lots of mental and physical stimulation or they get into trouble. Maybe that is why Boodie is the one GOOD cat in the house. 😉
I think Boodie just got burned. 🙂
Sam gets bored quickly……..and strangely that’s become more “amplified” as he’s aged! Go figure – I would have thought he didn’t NEED as much stimulation as an oldie.
I would think that too. Hmmm….
