Cats ARE neurotic – and they’re probably also trying to work out how to kill you, say researchers

They are well loved for their immaculate fluffy coats and unique personalities but new research suggests cats do have a much darker side.

A study carried out between the University of Edinburgh and Bronx Zoo compared our beloved domestic cat with its wilder relatives.

Cat hates music…

    They obviously have a lot in common with ex-wives.

    Research has shown that the Bengal cat breed (which has a considerable amount of Asian wildcat DNA in its ancestry, along with domestic cat DNA) eats two to three times more food compared to a domestic cat and still remains slim and fit compared to its opposite number who seldom stays in that category over time.
    The only rational explanation for this finding is that domestic felines are partially cold blooded in their metabolism and have gone to extraordinary lengths to keep this feature secret. They are likely closely related to the more unpleasant members of the reptile family.
    You might want to keep this in mind the next time you pass by your cat, always curled up in a sunny spot, its eyelids supposedly closed tight.

    That was hilarious, apparently flute playing equals play time for the tubby kitty.
