So as it turns out, whenever you were a bit paranoid and thought your cat was eyeing you up – it is very likely that he it was indeed plotting to kill you.
Bronx Zoo and University of Edinburgh has conducted a joint study which revealed that that there these suspected dark thoughts are somewhat justified.
In a personality test carried out on more than 100 cats, researchers have found that our domestic cats share many traits with their larger feline relatives, such as the African lion, Scottish wildcat and snow leopard. Dominance, neurotic behavior and impulsiveness, in specific.
They’re cute and furry and cuddly, but we need to remember that when we have cats as pets we are inviting little predators into our house. For a lot of people, it’s worth it. Cats can be sweet companions, until they turn on you.
So apparently, the only thing that protects us from our cats’ true predator abilities is their relatively small size.
