That tells me what I suspected. Cats are lazy, they want the easy life, and they saw humans as a way to do it. Smart little buggers aren't they.

Indeed they are!

Yes, all other domestic animals were selectively bred by humans for desired characteristics. Cats were just fine the way they were. 🙂

Interesting read—Bug has spots And stripes! I agree that cats were perfect “already” as compared to dogs who were trained for different tasks.

@LetzGetReal I totally agree. I was just quoting from the article. I find it interesting that cats have hardly changed while dogs have.
