Cats, as the old saying goes, were once worshiped as gods and have never allowed the world to forget it. And why not? They’re adorable, and who cares if they show a little sociopathic behavior every so often? Cuteness will get you out of a lot, but their standoffish nature and refusal to participate in behavioral studies (like their canine counterparts often do) means that we know surprisingly little about what’s going on inside a kitty’s mind. We do think that there’s quite a lot happening in there, though, because they’re just fascinating little heart-stealers.
