  1. Past studies have compared the ‘neural packing density’ in the brains of our favorite carnivorous pets, estimating that cats have about 300 million neurons, roughly doubling the 160 million of dogs…

          1. Considering it’s almost midnight, and they’re still banging around up there, yep.

            Cats vs Dogs… I don’t take it too seriously. Both animals are fairly smart, and I love pretty much all animals (other than my neighbors’ dogs, LOL).
