No matter how intelligent we think our pets are, they somehow always end up exceeding our expectations. It’s almost as if they were programmed for this. And we’re not talking about parrots and their ability to mimic or dogs and their ability to fetch. We’re talking big. We’re talking about their instinctive and super intelligent behavior. They may not realize what they’re doing but we can clearly see the depth behind their seemingly normal actions.
We’ve all seen how dogs are good at understanding human command and how cats are excellent at making observations. But sometimes these pets portray these behaviors on a much bigger scale and leave us all speechless. Note that such behavior is not very common and not a lot of people have witnessed it. So, to show you just how intelligent our pets can be we have compiled some of the top stories shared by Redditors below. From protecting children from pedophiles to comforting owners by saying “it’s okay” the following pet stories will make you read them twice. Check them out.

According to a research, dogs on an average can understand up to 165 spoken words and can solve simple arithmetic problems. Which is why they’re so intelligent and good at picking up hints and somewhat understanding humans. However, it’s not just their intelligence. It’s also the bond that they share with humans. The same goes for cats. The shared bond and the mutual love is what makes our pets so responsive.
