Cats are able to remember what happens to them, and, if necessary, to extract from memory the necessary information.
This was reported by Japanese scientists, who argue that cats are stupider than dogs, described in the journal Behavioural Processes.
The experiment involved 49 domestic cats. Scientists tested, remember you cats 15 minutes later, the food out of a bowl they have eaten, and what remained full. It turned out that cats really are able to turn to episodic memory, to find out what and where.
Scientists suggest that cats can remember certain events over a period much longer than the study, and to invoke pleasant memories in the same way as humans do.
In addition, they show results not worse than dogs in tests on the reaction to the gestures of man, his expression and emotions.
