Did you know that a physicist once made his cat the co-author of his paper because he'd accidentally written "we" instead of "I" throughout his work and couldn't be bothered to change it? Also, believe it or not, the British Government has a position called "Chief Mouser To The Cabinet Office" that can only be assigned to a cat. And although this may not surprise you, a study once proved that cats are more than capable of recognizing their owner's voices, but simply choose to ignore it.

You can also calm cats down by shutting and opening your eyes very slowly while maintaining eye contact, of course. It might be helpful when our furry friend is in stress for some reason.

Well that makes me sad, but glad shelters take actions against it. Sucks if someone genuinely wants a black cat at that time because they don't get adopted as often

Well, as suspected, I looked this breed up and the cost to "adopt" one is $1950. Disgusting. If you are paying that much, it is not an adoption fee, you are purchasing a 'luxury' breed. Also shockingly the husband of the couple who breeds them is a vet.

This is incorrect. There have been at least a dozen species of cats that have gone extinct, even in the last 100 years. Leopard, lion and tiger subspecies have been obliterated by humans.
