My familly is use to have cats for about 25 years. My parents got 4 in their house and I got one (I had two but one got sick and died after being with me for 14 years). So far I have observed that female cats are way more intelligent than males and also are use to hunt much more than males. Now most of our cats is quite old and became lazy but in the past they were quite effective hunters.

I doubt it "...that female cats are way more intelligent than males..." 

Certainly intact tom-cats are seriously single-minded, but so are females when in season..

Neutered males, - if allowed to develop properly before gelding - do grow larger & make good verminators too.. especially if actively raised to hunt by their mothers.

Research on feline brains show a certain structural commonality with humans, which likely accounts for
the way they choose to associate with us..

While I tolerate a certain level of pushy conduct, its gotta be a 2-way street.. a bit like all decent society..

An inability to show the proper response to fairly given corrective inputs is reason for cessation of contract.. 

& credit goes to cats for choosing this option for themselves - if they think it needful, too..

My statement is based on my experiences. I have been never teaching my cats any tricks but females just learned them by watching us - people at home. So they were using human toilet, turning on the lights in house, opening doors. While my male cats have never did anything like that.

I have a male black and white shorthair. He uses the toilet and opens doors, he also sometimes "edits" my posts.

I also know what eff u sounds like in cat language.

OK, I'm back with a couple of updates..

Being of all-white fur, ol' puss is otherwise pink ( or white, when cold) skinned..

& I had to take him to the vet surgery for an operation to remove a skin cancer,
from his face, it was steadily growing between his eye & ear..

Poor fella came out looking like Dr Frankenstein had done the cutting/suturing..
& he absolutely hated having the plastic funnel-like protective collar in situ.

I was supposed to ensure he stayed inside, but as a dedicated outside cat, he
let me know he wasn't going to stay indoors for long..
( & he has never been destructive to furniture, but quickly got my attention - by clawing it)

He tried hard, to shake the plastic collar off, & by levering it against fence posts, to no avail,
but after about a week, I busted him rubbing his face up against an outside tap/fawcett..
..so I removed both the collar & huckery looking sutures..

The affected side is healing remarkably rapidly, & with the shaved down fur growing back,
he just has a quizzical expression/Siamese cat slanted eye look, which seems even stranger,
since he has one blue eye, & one yellow/green eye..

I had a report about him from the neighbour - who habitual gets up at dawn for a brisk walk..
he reckoned he'd seen ol' puss in the grounds of the local hospital, about a kilometre away,
hunting rodents..

& a couple of days ago the cat showed up with a slash cut right across the top of his shoulders..
..he didn't seem too bothered about it,

But the same neighbour then claimed the cat had had a fight with an owl..
& showed me the large flight feathers left in evidence..

I expect the owl tried to grab the feline by the neck, but the cat ducked,
& with only one talon hooked, & a 15lb, very feisty cat all riled up.. had to let go..

Later the next day ol' puss was still feeling ornery, so when the neighbour from
across the road & up a ways was exercising her dog with a tennis ball & it rolled
into my driveway, pursued by a 30lb or so black 'n' tan dog, white boy took
umbrage, & intercepted the hound with a belt over her ear.. & chasing her out..

I saw it happen, & felt a bit sorry for the bitch.. she was still wanting to retrieve
her ball but whined/baulked at re-entry to collect it with a puffed up combative
cat - who was fully ready to administer further chastisement for any trespass..

So,  I collected the well-slobbered tennis ball & tossed it back over the road,
for which the dog & her owner - were both grateful..
