Do we keep cats....

... or do cats keep us?

A recent article, linked here, suggests that it was not us who domesticated the cat so many years ago, but the cat who domesticated itself! I can't say I'm surprised-- I mean, ours did teach themselves the litter box, the scratching post (our couch), the water dish, the grooming, and the all-important know-when-to-wake-us-up-for-breakfast tasks. All we really do for them is feed them. Oh, and vacuum when they shed. And Mr. Food takes on the litter box once in a while. For that I am eternally grateful!
