    Some are smart and some are...too smart to be judged by this nonsense.

    In a new TikTok trend, pet owners are judging their cats' intelligence based on their response when held near a wall.

    If the cat puts their arms out to stop themselves from hitting the wall, TikTok is deeming them a smart kitty. And if they allow their face to touch the wall...they don't quite pass the test.

    While some argue that it's more a of test to see how much your cat trusts you, the results are hilarious either way.

    Watch these cats get put to the test...

    1. Leif absolutely aced the test.

    2. Penelope unfortunately did not understand the assignment.

    3. Sir Pounce's usual intelligence did not shine in this test.

    4. Louis passed the exam while Luna...didn't do as well.

    5. It turns out cunning intelligence doesn't run in the name for Loki the cat, but his siblings nailed it!

    6. The cats in this household didn't quite get it, but we'll cut Draco some slack since he's so cute and little.

    9. Snow may not have excelled here, but at least he has a cool jersey!
