She's actually super smart; certainly the smartest Persian I've ever had. The last Persian I had liked to sleep out in the middle of the road, and when cars came by she'd just lay there. By contrast, this one has learned to use various electronics throughout the house. She actually uses her paw to carefully press buttons, which is really interesting to watch. She has an electronic cat toy that pops a mouse in and out of holes around it, and it has a tiny little button that only people are supposed to operate, but she wanted to play with the toy at her whim, so she learned to turn it on herself. Same with the Roomba, and she's in the process of learning light switches.
