|Check out that little cat. He doesn't need a sword!|
Did you know that some people believe different breeds have different personalities? That science has proved that some cats have mastered the art of a purr so annoying it is the equivalent of a human baby crying--and that's why we do whatever we can to please them? That Vikings favored orange cats, and that's why orange cats are more common in some parts of the world than others?
Those are just a few of the factoids you can learn while watching clips of cartoon and real cats nuzzling, jumping, prancing, and helping out their Viking underlings (as above) in this documentary.
However, search for the film with care. The documentary I'm talking about is called The Lion in Your Living Room. It does not appear to be related to the recent book The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World by Abigail Tucker. Although that sounds good, too.
This Week in Cats is a weekly (more or less) post about all things cat-related. The nature of what “related” means in this context will be determined by Sam T. Cat and his plucky sidekick, Josie Kafka. The nature of what “cat” means is unknowable to human brains; all we can do is read, hope for enlightenment, and provide more boxes for them to play with.
