So when Christians and other religious types complain to atheists that they just want to be allowed to believe their stuff and be left alone, it's things like this (and the hobby lobby bullshit) that I point them to.
I would gladly, GLADLY, ignore and leave religious types alone if only they would leave everyone else alone. But no, they insist and demand that everyone else must conform to their personal beliefs.
And that's why I'm not just an atheist but an anti-theist. They won't leave us alone; therefore, I won't leave them alone.

It's hard to show valid evidence that cats are smarter or dumber than any other animal.
However, it's likely cats retain fewer memories than dogs. Research generally finds that memories and "consciousness" are functions of the brain's cerebral cortex (the outer layer). The more "wrinkled" and folded an animal's cortex is, the more memories it has. Cat's brains are relatively smooth compared to dogs.
/and I'm saying this as someone who likes cats and dislikes dogs.
