The Smartest Breeds of Cats

Cats are some of the smartest animals in the world. Their intelligence varies depending on the breed and, of course, the specific cat. A cat’s intelligence is estimated based on several criteria, such as how tamable it is, how adaptable it is, how it interacts with other animals, and more.

5-Minute Crafts is going to tell you which types of cats are the smartest.

Siamese cat

Siamese cats are some of the most famous and smartest cats. They are so curious that they can’t rest until they’ve seen every corner at home. Siamese cats are good at training. You can even see such a cat having fun turning the tap or opening a drawer.

They are very cute, social animals. They get really attached to one owner and might feel sad without them. This is why Siamese cats are often bought in pairs, so they are never bored.


Singapuras are small, playful creatures. They like taking part in what humans are doing. They also enjoy climbing curtains and other vertical surfaces. Expect your cat to jump on your shoulder and play with a ball. These cats know how to manipulate their owners.

Cornish Rex

These cats are loyal, playful, and muscular. Sometimes, they are even compared to dogs. The Cornish Rex is a very smart cat that loves communicating with its owner and might even enjoy a walk down the street. They love attention and can even learn tricks — anything to spend more time with people. They are active, they easily open doors and closets, and can climb to the highest point in your home.

Scottish Fold

The Scottish Fold got its name thanks to its ears. But it’s not the only thing that makes them special. Such cats love being with people, so don’t leave them alone for a long time. They might join you when you’re watching a film and see what’s happening on the screen. These cats love playing and enjoy puzzles and games that involve a lot of movement.


Burmese cats are energetic and communicative. They can watch their surroundings and understand their owners’ moods. The ancestors of these cats are Siamese cats, and they inherited their intelligence from them. Burmese cats love “talking” and get really attached to their owners, so leaving them alone is not a good idea. Expect them to follow you around the apartment and demand your attention. They can even learn tricks to be in the spotlight all the time.

Bengal cats

Bengal cats are easy to recognize thanks to their exotic fur. This breed appeared as a result of interbreeding a house cat with a wild Bengal cat. This breed is a bit wild, and they love jumping, running, and climbing. There should be enough space for such physical activity. They also love different games and puzzles. It’s better not to leave them without any entertainment — they might steal a fish from the water tank or even snag something small from your wardrobe.

Bengal cats can be walked on a leash, and you can even teach them to turn off the lights. They are great with kids.


Abyssinian cats are elegant, active, cute creatures. They are believed to be the smartest breed. They love communicating with their owners and can even be taught some tricks. They love sitting at the highest point in the room to watch what’s going on. They feel comfortable with other animals and they easily adapt to new conditions.
