According to conventional wisdom, dogs tend to be lovable, but dumb. And cats tend to be aloof, but smart. Not so! It turns out cats are just as capable of lovable stupidity as dogs are, (and dogs are just as capable of intelligent aloofness, but that’s not what this article is about.)

Bored Panda has compiled this selection of cats that were caught making a major blunder. Whether they got stuck somewhere they shouldn’t have been, or they just couldn’t figure out something simple, these cats prove that they aren’t any smarter than their canine counterparts. They just have better PR.
