I've always heard that if you want to find out how smart your cat is, then put him in front of a mirror.

If your cat tries to engage his reflection then he's smart. If he doesn't even see or acknowledge his reflection then..well, not so much!

This kitty below is VERY smart! By the way, I've done this experiment with my cats before and I'd like to go ahead and keep thinking that they don't acknowledge their reflections because they just don't feel like it...Okay?
