i’m pretty sure this means cats domesticated us
Cats are bloody genius, okay? Their whole game is full-on manipulation. Allowing themselves to be domesticated is ridiculously advantageous to them! Do you know what the average lifespan for a feral cat is compared to a house cat is? It’s three years as compared to sixteen years! These clever little buggers have even developed a second kind of purr, just to manipulate humans. They have their ordinary purr, the happy purr, and then the purr that they use when they want something, right? That second purr is specifically designed so that it is in the same general frequency as the cry of a human infant. It’s their way of tapping into our primal instincts and making us feel obliged to do what they want. They’re sneaky little shits.
