This was a great story to hear on the Today show this morning. It probably made bamos gnash his teeth, though.
Sentient being in figuring out how to get something it wants SHOCKER
I think the purring thing is small scale, really.
Cats normally start biting to get attention. Our cat from 20 years back used to nudge mum's breakable objects towards the edge of the dresser until she had to get out of bed to stop them falling and then felt like she may as well feed him.
and I do rather love cats. Just don't see why anyone thought this was news as such. Claiming that cats mimic babies (as the report I read did) was just too much anthropomorphism for me
the woman said how the high pitched parts of the purr were the same frequency range as the bit of a baby's yell that 'gets' to you. They didn't say it was like a baby's cry as such. But yes, it sounds tenuous, doesn't it?
Which reminds me, I want to look into getting a rescue cat that is already specifically a house cat...
likes to toss turds out of the litter tray when she wants me to empty it. Bitch.
I hate cats
There, I said it
They're all undeniably evil. Evil and bad. Wee dogs are far better.
but this does add to my assumption that cats are especially evil. Even more so some of the stuff people have added up the top. Shitting in your sink. Why would you want that thing to stay in your house/flat after that??
