When adults say, “Teenagers think they are invincible” with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.

Cats have not and will not be domesticated.

I read something earlier today written by an actual Cat Scientist (well, a veterinary scientist specialising in feline anthrozoology) that pretty much said the same thing.

"The domestic cat, despite its name, is not actually a fully domesticated species. It retains a lot of the abilities of the wild ancestor, so that it can flip between a fully hunting wild-type existence to a very domesticated existence curled up by somebody’s fire - literally within a generation or two. The domestic dog has gone down the whole way to the end of domestication - fully domesticated. The domestic cat is still, perhaps, only half way." [x]

And why give up the advantages of keeping your wild side when your human slaves will continue to feed you and pet you even when you refuse to even pretend to follow instructions and make a hobby of coughing up hairballs in their shoes.
