A Cats Meow
"The cat (Felis catus), also known as the domestic cat or housecat to distinguish it from other felines and felids, is a small domesticated carnivorous mammal." ~ Wikipedia. For 9.500 years cats have been associated with our kind, but we have only seen them for what they are on the outside and not for what they are on the inside. Ever question why most cats keep their distance? Secretly they are off dreaming of a life they will never have. When they are out exploring the wilderness they act as if they were a wild animal, in search of their midnight snack. A cat will stock its prey, waiting patiently for the right moment to strike, and then it leaps like a lion into the air, landing vigorously on its specimen, as the cat sinks its teeth into the animal its life ends. When I was a little girl I had this poster of a kitten pondering what it was going to be like as an adult, a tiger, it said one day its meow was going to turn into a ROAR. I believe this is true for most cats, I think they see them selves a lot bigger than they are, this is why they sit with pride, and don't fully seek the affections of us humans, they just use us so they can get a daily meal.
