Why do we keep cats and dogs as pets when they're so bloody thick?
Some prefer not so smart animals if they like the behaviour.

After all, some keep much more stupid
pets like snakes, sheep, horses, birds etc.

Why not monkeys?
They have real downsides. If you don't like the way some
cats knock things off stuff, monkeys are much worse in
that regard. And some can be much more vicious too.

I lived in Singapore for a number of years and a few
people did have monkeys for pets, but far more had
the usual cats and dogs. The monkeys were mostly
working animals, good for going up palm trees and
twisting off the coconuts and throwing them down.

But cats and dogs produce smelly shit and have no idea how to bury it themselves. The others you mention aren't that bad.

Yes I suppose too much intelligence in a pet can be a bad thing.

Dogs don't, but cats do. So give over talking bollocks, would you.

Easy enough to get them to shit outside
the house where you don't notice the smell.

I don't care when they shit outside.

People do not like pets more intelligent than they although with monkeys
it's a toss-up. Chimps, which are apes, are smarter. The are also a pain
in the ass.

You have answered your own question. We want to feel superior. In any case,
most dog owners like them as they are like young children, and most cat
lovers like them because they are independent and a little daft. They are
also cute and stroking a cat which likes it can be a great way to calm
down.
Monkeys on the other hand need to be with other monkeys. Being intelligent
unlike dogs they need companionship of members of their own species, whereas
dogs make us into honorary dogs of their pack which is why we must act as
pack leader to keep them in check.
Also looking after a monkey often requires specialist dietary needs and a
good environment or for their mental health.

Now other animals are available of course , but many are really short lived,
which means a major problem for the owner every couple of years, or tend to
maybe hard to keep, like snakes and reptiles and insects, or fish, and not
easy to stroke a fish.
Birds, well hard to keep humanely in my view, as they fly and hence that is
an issue.

The question of why we keep pets is an interesting one though.

Parrots are good pets. Quite a bit of mess and you need to keep them away from things they can chew like wires and furniture, but their shit doesn't stink like cats and dogs.
