That's a neat quiz. I have to say, though, having spent the last 2.5 years working in the field of neuroscience, I can say with certainty that a cat's brain isn't 99% the same as a human's. I love my cats dearly and they're wonderful creatures... but they have very little frontal lobe.

The 30 mph thing explains why it's so hard to catch them when it's time to put them in their carrier, though!

I know kitties have tiny frontal lobes, but they are thinking creatures who are able to plan ahead. Personally, I think that our wonderful felines use a more visual mode of thinking, employing their visual cortex.

If you closely observe they way they play and communicate you'll see that it's more in images. Almost a form of charades.

I'm no expert, but I also believe kitties somehow make more efficient use of their brain than we do.

nice quiz.

I have a book which I have been reading and just read about ears and eyes. Cats those 32 muscles to controll its ears give it 180 degrees of independant motion which allow it to locate exactly where a sound if coming from. 10 times more acute than dogs...
I was quite shocked to find out that we (humans) cant tell whether something is behind us or in front...

Then the eyes thing, they see best in dim situations, cant remember excatly what it said, but I do remember quite well that cats are most active dawn/dusk and how we should try to 'reprogram' their natural clocks to suit us... lol also that they are mostly colour blind... they can see colour but not in great detail and reds are mostly gray...

Very interesting... That running thing doesnt surprise me.

I remember seeing on the news a cat stuck up in a telephone pole, right up the top. When they got a cherry picker to help get it down it got spooked and jumped down... landed instride walked up to its owner and did the headbutt on their legs... they replayed the jump quite a few times and I was amazed...
