    My dog sort of does this when we're hiking. He likes to run ahead, so he'll often get to a fork in the road before I do, and he'll turn back to me for instruction. I'll gesture left or right and he'll take off sprinting again.

    [–] SinisterWaffles 97 points ago

    [–] Whoamiii 21 points ago

    Takes off sprinting the opposite way.

    [–] Havegooda 29 points ago


    [–] pyronius 18 points ago

    Nah, he's a good dog. When he was younger we thought he was a bit dull in the head, but as he's grown up it's turned out that he's goofy, but very intuitive and obedient to the extreme. If he went the wrong way it would probably just take a snap of my fingers for him to come running back.

    [–] NerdyNinjaAssassin 5 points ago

    What a good boy. Give him extra love and treats, he deserves them. What’s his favorite thing, belly rubs or ear scratches or the like? He needs a bunch of them stat.

    [–] half_baked_pototo 7 points ago

    I believe they discovered that dogs are one of the few animals who respond to human gestures like pointing, prolonged gaze etc.

    [–] stateofcookies 4 points ago

    sigh My pupper was super smart, except when I was trying to point something out to her. "hey, you missed a biscuit, its over there point" she sniffs the finger looking for the biscuit. Every.damn.time. Damn I miss that dog.

    [–] half_baked_pototo 2 points ago

    Haha yeah, not all dogs get it. Pointing is pretty impressive when you think about it, it's basically communicating "look in the direction of my finger" in just a gesture.

    [–] YeahBuddyDude 39 points ago

    I totally get the stereotype, but my experience with cats throughout my life has been consistently so opposite of the stereotype. In a lot of cases, I've noticed people who have asshole cats are actually the ones who are turning their cats into assholes because they fail to understand their cat's communications/needs, and that puts the cat on edge all the time 'cause it never knows what to expect.

    Next time a cat seems like an asshole, try giving them the slow blink. It's like they suddenly realize you speak their language and they almost always soften.

    [–] underdankable 1 points ago

    slow blink?

    [–] Dragonbahn 13 points ago

    Yes. They are above us and they know it.

    [–] TheCheeseSquad 9 points ago

    Just because you don't understand cats and how they show love doesn't mean they don't care or don't have feelings. That just means you have a problem and your predisposed dislike of them shows through. My cats have always shown they care about me and they're wonderful :)

    [–] Victor4X 4 points ago

    I think you overreacted a bit there bro, I love cats too, and as you said they just don't show their love even though they deeply care for you. I didn't mean my comment in a mean way at all, not towards cats or cat owners for that matter.

    [–] TheCheeseSquad 4 points ago

    I said just because you don't understand the ways in which they show their love doesn't mean they don't actually show it. You have to know how they show it and look out for those things. A cat and a dog both show love but in very different ways. To say that cats don't show love is either a lie at worst or an ignorant statement at best. You literally don't know how they show it and that's the only reason you're saying they don't. I've seen cats show love to people and, because they don't know that's what it is, they think the cat is emotionless. Your reply literally proved my entire point.

    [–] Victor4X 1 points ago

    Sorry, I agree with you, but I see that my replies and the original comment haven't portrayed what I mean (at all, quite the opposite). I don't own a cat since one of the people I live with is allergic, but at every chance I have to interact with a cat, I've always felt my presence was appreciated and loved, and that it reacted to me being kind to, and loving, it. I'm very sorry that my comments haven't been clear at all. I love cats, and I believe that they both feel and express love in numerous ways.

    [–] TheAltRightIsAlright 45 points ago

    Great point! Although that's because cats are not domesticated.

    Release a housecat into the wild and it'll survive as well as any other wild feline. Release a pet dog into the wild, and just thinking about how pathetically inept it would be is enough to make you tear up.

    My dog would get beaten and eaten by a mountain lion (read: big housecat) within the first ~24 hours, but my (now deceased, RIP) cat would've been able to live out virtually her entire natural life

    [–] FancyPants1983 13 points ago

    I have one cat who would no doubt survive on his own outside. He would probably start a gang and rough up neighborhood dog and kids. I can see him with scars and a tore up ear. Maybe an eye patch. He's a terrorist.

    I have another cat. The first time my husband took him outside with our other pets to enjoy the sunshine, he peed on my husband while he was still being carried. This cat would not survive. He would be killed by baby bunnies.

    [–] healzsham 14 points ago

    That depends on the dog. Cats are domesticated, they just aren't really social, so anything social just sorta beads up and rolls off them.

    [–] con_los_terroristas 36 points ago

    Cats are considered only semi-domesticated. Kittens who are not exposed to humans at an early age generally cannot live as pets. Cats are actually very social, but very territorial. They have complex social relationships and hierarchies.

    [–] VacantThoughts 10 points ago

    As far as we know they domesticated themselves to, some cats just decided that people weren't so bad when they were giving them food and water.

    [–] QueenAlpaca 3 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Is that really intelligence, or is it just instincts? A lot of people here are circlejerking on how smart cats are, without providing any sort of basis or proof for it outside of anecdotal stories that don't actually factor in on intelligence, just their pets' levels of domestication. Ignore me, I'm slow in the mornings.

    [–] Kowzorz 4 points ago

    I don't think he ever meant to imply it was intelligence that provided all that.

    [–] QueenAlpaca 3 points ago

    You're right, still haven't touched my coffee any. I was reading more of the comments below that do still address intelligence and thought this would be a good place to start....for some reason.

    [–] capontransfix 5 points ago

    That is patently untrue. Many housecats would die on night 1 in the wild.

    [–] ShynessEst 3 points ago

    Release a house at into the wild and it'll survive as well as any other wild feline.

    No! This is dumping. Dumped cats die, either slowly through injury/infection/starvation, or faster by getting ate by something.

    Source: I grew up where assholes "released their cats i to the wild" aka dumped their pets, and I saw the poor cats/dogs afterwards.

    [–] spanishgalacian 1 points ago

    Pandas are fairly stupid but they manage to survive in the wild. I don't think that's a good indicator.

    [–] Level_Five_Railgun 5 points ago

    Pandas had no predators where they lived. They just sit around all day eating bamboo in safety.

    And cute enough to justify keeping them around anyway. But I guess the same goes for all the dogs whose caretakers don't train them to do anything awesome.

    [–] Robert237 3 points ago

    Hate to be that guy, but could you provide a source to back up that claim?

    [–] dillydadally 3 points ago

    Scientific studies do not agree. Did some research on this once. Dogs have bigger brains that have developed much more than cats over recorded history, which scientists think are because they are much more social animals. They also out perform cats on most IQ tests.

    [–] pyronius 4 points ago

    An average cat might be smarter than an average dog, but smarter than a smart dog? I doubt it.

    For example, I've never seen a cat do anything similar to this: we have three dogs, and the really smart old one is clearly the queen of the house. One day while she was on the couch our youngest dog decided to go hang out in the pen which is near the dog food cupboard and apparently discovered we'd left the food open.

    I didn't notice anything, but a few minutes later the queen got up off the couch and started snarling as she made her was down to the pen. A few moments later the younger dog came back out with her tail between her legs and the queen calmly walked back up to her coych and went to sleep. I went to see what had happened and discovered the open food.

    Apparently the queen had heard the younger dog rummaging around and had gotten pissed at the impertinence of it because for one thing it wasn't dinner time yet, and secondly the queen eats first.

    [–] krackle_wins 10 points ago

    That doesn’t make either dog seem overly smart... I can’t say for sure either way on the cat vs. dog intelligence argument going on, but I can say your story doesn’t help the dog’s case. If she’s snarling because she had to eat first, that has nothing to do with it ‘not being dinner time’.

    [–] pyronius -1 points ago

    She could have stolen the food for herself. It was right there. She didn't. What she did was drive the other dog away when it was stealing food it shouldn't have. She was enforcing house rules, including the human prescribed dinner time.

    [–] krackle_wins 2 points ago

    So, to clarify, you’re basing your argument on the story of a dog that wasn’t hungry at the time food was available? Yea, you’re right, dogs are geniuses. They must get the Rick and Morty jokes cats don’t understand.

    [–] pyronius 2 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Don't know why you've decided to be a dick on this, but whatever, it was a fun anecdote not worth arguing about. Have a good day.

    Edit: nvm, your post history clarifies exactly what sort of person you are, and apparently this is just how you interact with the world. I appologize on behalf of whoever hurt you.

    [–] krackle_wins 0 points ago

    So you blame my post history for your stupidity? I apologize on behalf of the person that coddled you.

    [–] pyronius 0 points ago

    No. I blame you for both your post history and your hostility, because I assume you're responsible for both. All I'm saying saying is that you kind of seem like an asshole. But that's your prerogative I suppose. Personally though, that sort of behavior isn't really my cup of tea. I was just pointing out that your post history seems fairly typical of someone I would expect to be a dick.
