I was walking upstairs and trying to get my cat to follow because I figured she'd want water. I made some sounds that she's accustomed to meaning I'm trying to get her attention. They I say "Come on. It's Caturday." Then it hit me.
If someone has made up an idea call Caturday where we're supposed to pamper our cats more than usual (if that's possible
) then did we humans think of it ourselves or did one particular feline mentally plant the thought in the originator's mind and then passed it on to the rest, who then planted it in any humans they could. And if they can plant one thought, why not more?
Are we in fact ruled by Felis catus?
My theory is supported by these facts:
1. Where my cat likes to drink from is an upstairs bathroom sink. She rarely uses her actual bowl. Even though she has a fountain one that acts just like the sink.
2. When I get up in the morning she knows it's time to eat and will often follow me downstairs.
3. If she's hungry and wants us to know it she bushes up against the legs of the target human.
4. If she's looking for a belly rub and I'm lounging on a bed or something she sits near me, I instinctively roll her on her side and rub. Even to the point of my arm getting tired but I can't bring myself to stop.
