In the world of pets cats are the real troublemakers. Unlike dogs, they don’t really seem to care all that much about their owners well-being beyond what they can get out of them. Now, before you get mad I realize that there are exceptions, and every pet certainly has its own personality but there’s a reason cats have a reputation for being manipulative and aloof.
That said, there are times when they at least attempt to work things out. And by that I mean, they go from being aggressively self-interested to passive aggressively self-interested. That’s a pretty big step in reasoning and really shows the depth of their intellectual capabilities. Wondering what I mean? Check out this video of two cats that just can’t seem to agree on whose milk they’ve found in the kitchen.
Sometimes negotiations break down. At least they tried.
