Study Sheds Light On Why Your Cat Hates That Tutu
A study tracking the development of domesticated cats has found that genetically they're not quite as domesticated as we thought.By Sebastian Martinez | November 11, 2014
Cats are wild. Not wild as in crazy or as in a lot of fun to be around — wild as in not completely domesticated.
According to a new study, cats are only semi-domesticated, which isn't completely surprising considering the fact they only started living with humans some 9,000 years ago ... and also considering everything we know about cats. (Video via BBC)
Cats' independent spirit, their hunting prowess, and the way they so often ignore us completely all make it more surprising the researchers in the study were able to find genetic evidence of any domestication. (Video via BalRutilant / CC BY NC SA 2.0)
