That's because independent-mindedness has been redefined as psychopathy.
"Those other things are psychopaths, " say psychopaths.
I remember a study long ago where scientists concluded that cow farts were the cause of global warming. I think scientists can find anything in anything. And some scientists manage to find that cows can indeed fart. Or that dogs can smell. Or that cats can see ! We all know that dogs and cats have a sixth sense and are way smarter than humans. No studies needed for that.
Funny...after experiencing the last couple of years, I've come to the conclusion that all experts are psychopaths.
It's extraordinary how only people who live with and actually love cats know anything about their true natures...
"all cats have an element of psychopathy."
Yes, and I am striving to be much more catlike.
I will trust cats any day versus the malevolent subhumans "playing" with diseases to make them more contagious and lethal.....sick twists. With cats, you always know where you stand.
My mother always said follow the money and you shall know the truth!
OMG. This is real.
Yes, let's start applying the DSM to animals, since it's so very very scientific to begin with and not at all cultural or political.
Kitty wants you to come closer and whisper that into his ear......
Cats understand Game Theory - specifically, they understand that in a 2-player game with no fixed end-point, the optimal strategy is 'tit for tat': co-operate if your counterparty co-operates, and defect if your counterparty defects... then go back to co-operating on the next turn.
Thing is, they think we 'defect' any time we do anything that they find mildly irksome (or fail to do something that they think they might enjoy).
Fair enough, I guess. They make their expectations perfectly clear.
I like the mindless optimism and deep loyalty of dogs, but they really set themselves up for a sad life if they happen to wind up owned by the wrong person.
Contrast that with what a cat would do to an abusive owner: piss on their sofa, shit in their fridge, and go find a new crib.
Those eyes tell you: you're on notice. Every day starts with "What Have You Done For Me Lately". It's unflinchingly honest.
The Ancient Egyptians knew what time it was: that's why they worshipped them (Maftet/Bastet - a cat-god - existed 2000 years before Yahweh the Old Testament's Genocidal Sky Maniac).
Then again, the Egyptians worshipped 'bin chickens' (that's what people in Queensland call Ibis)...
The cats have the "good" psychopathic qualities: superficial charm, grandiose, need for stimulation (when they're not napping), cunning (in a good way), lack of goals (where's the can-opener), failure to accept responsibility (I did NOT knock over that plant, nor bite the dog), and promiscuity (they would if they could). The Fauci-types, not so lovable: Pathological lying, grandiose (not in a cat-way), pathological lying (oops, I said that already), manipulative, lack of remorse, callous, parasitic life (think pharma-funds), and cunning (NOT in a good way) and FAIL-ure to accept responsibility. Go Brandon.
you cannot trust experts and their study... follow the money!
LOL! My laugh of the day.
must be dog lovers, except for beagles
From Dr. Mercola, just posted. Graphic vax rxns about 1/4 way in. Horrible
It’s amazing what does get published.
Feline Philosophy by John Gray. Pertinent.
What's up with the stories going around about animals being able to contract Covid and thus spread it to humans? My kitty cuddles are among the activities that keep me sane.
you cracked me up again, GATO!!!

Do not take it “personal”
You mean "Says the species that conducts and funds 'Maximum Pain Research' on Chimps for no real reason.
said the species that all have an element psychopathy for better or worse
Psychopathy is the only way to battle group-think
Forgot to mention my favourite meme: "I can pretend to listen, and I can pretend to care. Just not at the same time."
The cat in that meme is the living image of Biggie (aka Big Blackie).
