Not long ago we decided to try a little experiment inspired by this link:
It’s true, Mesdames et Messieurs. Dogs’ faces visibly change when humans say “Good boy” or “Good girl”, because they actually value our opinion. Cats, on the other hand, aren’t even listening to us. And, in the highly unlikely event that they hear what we say, they don’t care.
Anyway, here is Oscar the dog:
A hint of a smile from Nala the dog:
(We did not conduct this experiment with Gizzy as her weird face-fur conceals any type of facial expression. Plus we’re still not sure what she is.)
Noah the dog:
And, erm, Louis Catorze:
So … does this prove that dogs are loyal, eager-to-please companions and cats are dastardly villains?
Cat Daddy: “Yeah, because we were all racking our brains over that one.”
Thank you to the Oscar’s Dog Parents, Nala’s Puppy Parents and Noah’s Dog Aunty – and to the doggies themselves, of course – for being such good sports.
