The Null Device
Our Furry Masters:
A psychology researcher at Cornell University has found that
domestic cats' meows have evolved to hook into human perception
, and better communicate with (or manipulate) humans, over the millennia of domestication.
Recordings of the calls of wild desert cats (believed to be closely related to domestic cats' wild ancestors) were found by test subjects to be harsher and less pleasant-sounding than those of domestic cats.
"I think cats have evolved to become better at managing and manipulating people."
