Cats And Their Pets (Us)

A Cornell study confirms what we've always known: cats manage their owners through different vocalizations. Compared to native African cats (which always sounded "angry" to researchers, domesticated cats were found to have pleasant-sounding" calls. My favorite quote from the article: "Cats are domesticated animals that have learned what levers to push, what sounds to make to manage our emotions," Nicastro says. "And when we respond, we too are domesticated animals."
