1 – Better manners
Cats have more social intelligence, When friends arrive at your house, a dog goes into a frenzy, barking, jumping and pawing at the newcomer. “Pay attention to me!” he begs, as his excited nails tear at a guest’s linen jacket. While the dog does everything he can to gain approval, from running around the room to bouncing around like a basketball, the cat is usually nowhere to be seen.
Cats prefer to observe newcomers from a distance. For example, under the bed or on top of the refrigerator. Perhaps, if the cat is in the mood, it will come out to acknowledge this new person with a tail wag, a wary look. But that’s about it. No effusive greetings, no jumping on your lap or jumping on your paws. Invite a cat to your dinner party. It will discreetly stand on the sidelines while a dog craves – and sometimes takes – the main course.
