Cats 'exploit' humans by purring
Quote:

Cat owners may have suspected as much, but it seems our feline friends have found a way to manipulate us humans.

Researchers at the University of Sussex have discovered that cats use a "soliciting purr" to overpower their owners and garner attention and food.

Unlike regular purring, this sound incorporates a "cry", with a similar frequency to a human baby's.

The team said cats have "tapped into" a human bias - producing a sound that humans find very difficult to ignore.


I knew it!!! That's why the little buggers can get away with vomiting over everything that is not easily cleanable, and destroying everything in their path. No more, I say, no more. From now on:

I shall resist!!

Sure, right, me too...

That´s why after picking up my cat on our door step (it´s a long story but just to have an ideia we live in an apartment, and her name Maria Callas), yesterday we got another stranded one.
So yes, they are getting complete control over us....

Is it bad that I tend to kick cats that purr for attention? I should probably never have kids...
