Once upon a time (early '90s, I think), an article in Maclean's* magazine said something that bugged me so much I had to write a letter**.

Was it about politics? Nah. Religion? Nah. Sure, I'm plenty opinionated about those things, but not enough to overcome my laziness and actually write a letter.

It was about boardgames.




[* roughly, a Canadian equivalent of Time or Newsweek ]

Tell you a secret. The 20 to 30 year old boardgamers I knew in the 70s and 80s would have done the same.

I mean, come on. You don't even have to get into modern serious boardgames (of which there are many, dating back to the '50s at least). What about traditional old abstract strategy games like ... I dunno ... ever heard of chess?

Yeah, it really set me off.

We had a chess club when I was in 4th grade. the teacher who ran it had actually played competitively and wanted to teach kids how to play. He was also the only one who could give me any challenge all the other kids were learning the game I had been playing with relatives for years.

If a cat feels emasculated, they will attack a weaker willed cat to feel validated again. My boy cat will sometimes attack my girl cat if he got pushed off the couch by me or otherwise dismissed.

I think all animals are remarkably similar in basic temperament. The behavior I described above is similar to the analogy of a 'dad comes home from work after being berated by his boss and takes out his anger on his wife and kid' kind of thing. It makes sense to me. Those cats in particular just seem to think that the crow is very alien to them, plus he is kind of big and intimidating looking. I think the title of the video was perfectly descriptive and agree with gib that the crow knew what it was provoking. It looked very methodical. Birds are my favorite animals and very intelligent, crafty creatures. Crows are known to bond with humans that feed them and will return to places and people they deem to be safe. I have a dear friend of mine who is licensed in animal rehabilitation and she has told me stories of crows returning to her after being fed with small trinkets as gifts. Usually, it is just a random shiny object like a chunk of junk scrap metal, but really it is thought that counts.

Study finds crows to be as intelligent as human children.

If a crow can be estimated to be as smart as a seven year old human, cats pale in comparison. I've heard cat intelligence being compared to as high as a 4 year old human but other claims liken a dog to a two or three year old child and many sources say dogs are smarter than cats. Like humans, however, when IQ is put into question it is important to note there are many different types of intelligence so a cat might be better at some cognitive tasks than a dog and vice versa.
