There are several things that I smell like as soon as I walk into my office. One of them is my dog, which is, of course, a dog. The other is my dog’s favorite food, which, according to the dog, is just “cheese”.
That’s not the only thing you can smell on a dog. Some dogs are actually allergic to certain things, and if I ever get one, he’ll either not eat cheese or have to spend his entire life sniffing grass to get his food. It’s a real challenge to get him to enjoy cheeseburgers.
It’s interesting to see the difference between dogs and cats. Dogs are often described as smelling “like a combination of grass and dog urine.” On the other hand, cats are described as smelling like cat urine. I think the difference is that cats have no idea what a dog smells like, so they just can’t smell that.
The dog and cat world is not dissimilar to the us world in a lot of ways. Dogs can be very intelligent and have long memories. Cats are usually quite dumb, but can be very smart too. It’s interesting to see cats and dogs have completely different smells. Cats can smell grass and dogs can smell cat urine.
There is some difference between cats and dogs, and cats and humans in this regard. Humans think they smell like cat urine. Dogs, cats and people all seem to smell the same. But we might be missing something. Cats can also detect the smell of a variety of other animal scents. The dog smells of cheese. The cat smells of cat pee.
But the difference here is that cats and dogs have different senses of smell. So dogs can smell the cheese and their parents and the dog smells of cat urine, but cats can’t. Cats and dogs can sense a wide range of scents, but they only seem to be able to smell one.
So cats and dogs can clearly smell different scents, but can they both smell the same cheese? That would be a neat trick, and could lead to some really cool experiments.
Maybe. But a dog can smell cheese because it has to be a cheese, and a cat can smell cat pee because cheese is made of urine. That alone doesn’t tell you that a dog and cat have the same sense of smell, but it does show you that cats can sense cheese while dogs can’t.
So does that mean dogs and cats are both sensitive to cheese, but only one can smell it at a time? Sounds like a bit of a conspiracy theory.
Well yes, dogs and cats can both sense cheese, but cats have much more experience with cheese, so they are better at it. Dogs, on the other hand, are bred to be able to smell it, and can sniff cheese in a matter of seconds. But they are also extremely intelligent animals, so they dont need to sniff it.
