A cat’s brain: a look at what’s happening in the feline mind  

5# Have You Ever Wondered?

Do you find any similarities with your cats at home?

Let’s compare it with the human brain. Please note the vast differences in the male and female brain. In a cat’s world a person’s sex is indistinguishable. That makes me wonder: if humans are supposed to be so intelligent, why are we so sexist? Cats couldn’t care less.

    It's our first visit here. You made our mom laugh, good way to start her day. Well, we're cats so we're not sure what's so funny. We are glad she's happy.

    This proves it -- cats have many more brain centers, and therefore many more skills, than humans.

    Mom says yes, she sees the similarity in us cats. She says we are always following her around to whichever room she is in. She also says there should be a little piece on that map about us cats loving to sleep on her bed, especially when she is on the computer. She also agrees with the map of the male brain. Not so with the female brain, she's not into shoes.

    Dear Gatti, I will lets my momee tell abouts dis statement.

    Hi Gatti and Felineosopher: You have heard of Zen Buddhist Koans? If not, Wikipedia has a very good definition:

    A kōan (Japanese: kōan, Chinese: gōng-àn, Korean: gong'an, Vietnamese: công án) is a story, dialogue, question, or statement in the history and lore of Chán (Zen) Buddhism, generally containing aspects that are inaccessible to rational understanding, yet may be accessible to intuition. A famous kōan is: "Two hands clap and there is a sound; what is the sound of one hand?" (oral tradition, attributed to Hakuin Ekaku, 1686-1769, considered a reviver of the kōan tradition in Japan).

    We thought that since your blog post was about brain function, a good response from Dr Tweety would be to make up a koan that was not only about brain function, but also a play on an "American colloquialism" that goes something like this: "Does a bear poop in the woods?"

    So Dr Tweety settled on the following combination of the two divergent double entendres: "If a brain is thinking in the woods, whose brain is it?" Maybe a good translation would be: "Who is the thinker, myself or an omnipotent being?"

    Maybe that is more of a "Descartism? "Thus what I thought I had seen with my eyes, I actually grasped solely with the faculty of judgment, which is in my mind."

    Thanks for asking!

    And we love your blog!

    Madeline and Dr Tweety
