Cats manipulate humans..

… by using soliciting purrs.

Researchers at the University of Sussex have discovered that cats use a “soliciting purr” to overpower their owners and garner attention and food.

Doper cat lovers knew this for long , didn’t they ??:smiley:

Is the purr a BURR? My Scout will come over when she’s very happy and BURR for attention…too cute.

That program comes off as really biased against cats. Cats want you to know what they want so it’s called manipulation? Just plain old communication.

And this is a surprise??? Of course cats have ways to tell us what they want, once they figure out we don’t speak Cat.

I saw that article yesterday and was surprised it was considered “news”, anyone ever owned by a cat already knew that.
