A study has revealed that what makes our cats separate from their predatory big cat relatives is largely only attributed to their size. Otherwise they have the same or similar instincts and want the same or similar things--such as to kill us in our sleep. They would do that, according to the study, if they weren't so much smaller than us.
From cat aggression to neurotic behavior, our cats may be driven out of their minds with the mad desire to do us in. That would explain why mine are always trying to trip me, eh? Knowing this, I'm not sure if the two that sleep with me are purring and kneading me because they're content or because they're imagining me on toast.
What do you think of these findings? Do you think your cat really wants you dead?
