Fur dolls

The New Yorker explains our obsession with cats. A few highlights:

  • We may have domesticated dogs, but cats domesticated us.
  • We like cats in part because they remind us of human babies or fur dolls. Cats would not agree.
  • Only 2% of the domesticated cats on the planet are “pure bred”.
  • Cats may have caused schizophrenia in humans.
