Cat intelligence

Cat intelligence is the considered capacity of learning, thinking, and problem solving ability possessed by the domestic cat.

Cats learn by trial and error, observation and imitation.

Cat learning abilities are aided by a good memory.

Because of their sensitive sense of smell, cats prefer going outside to urinate and defecate.

Kittens need no training to use a litter box and cover up their waste; once they understand where the litter box is, they will seek it out from then on.

Cats can be trained to make use of a toilet.
