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.

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...
