How Large Are Cat's Brains? by tucsonmike on 2 November 2005 12:22am
 
While we were discussing cats in blathering on, my father asked, how large can cat's brains be? When they yawn, the open mouth takes up almost their entire head!

Oh, but cats are so clever - their brains are large, they just contract when they yawn, and then expand going back to their normal size when they close their mouths again. LOL.

I think you can definitely say size doesn't matter!! Cats are far too intelligent to be bothered what we humans think anyway!!

Clare ;o)

I don't think cats are clever. We had a visiting cat that gave up trying to catch the goldfish in the pond and just sat and watched them for a while before getting bored (or hungry) and going away.
From a biological point of view their brains are probably about 3cm in diameter by 1.5cm thick unless the beast is one of the big cats - tiger, lion etc.

I have two cats and they're the most useless animals. All they do is sleep, eat,get fat, and then get cat yak on you're favorite t-shirt. Kind of like my Uncle

Poor George is ducking hordes of angry blondes. Blondes with axes and spears (oh, you mean Vikings), ran through the Houston metro area looking for George. He survived, because they were eaten by those huge Texas mosquitoes (everything is big in Texas).

George, you survived. You may not be so lucky next time.

I've discovered all cats are different. People say they have "personalities." They can't have personalities though. They're cats.
It depends on the cat.
I grew up with cats. My present two couldn't think their way out of much. I had one cat who would play fetch with me. So they vary. They are never boring.
