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.

And they also need to report those people to the local authorities, who should wait a couple of weeks and go to your house to see if you ended up adopting a cat. If you only every tried to adopt a black cat right before Halloween, and you didn't own a cat afterwards, and you never showed an inclination to own a cat later, you need seriously to go on some kind of watch list.

As long as the servants do what they're supposed to do, there's no need for the Master to keep communicating. ;O

I would have a lot less cat conversations if my cat just used words instead of meowing... A meow and a death stare could mean anything...

Please don't breed cats for a look. Well mixed genes means healthy cats. If there is 18 links of stray, backyard, runt of the litter, and general fuss-ball I'm happy, as is the cat.

The purr is good for the humans who pet them too! I read somewhere that the frequency of a housecat's purr is roughly the same as a diesel engine (Thank God isn't as loud...)

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.
