Cats apparently think we're stupid and clumsy.
A biologist in Britain who has spent the past 3 decades studying cat behavior says cats aren't very domesticated and they don't see humans as another species. Rather, they see us as bigger, non-hostile cats like themselves.
They also see us dumber and more clumsy cats who need their help.
Dr. John Bradshaw's research shows cats live in a state of arrested development, and unlike dogs which have been bred over the years to change their physique and behavior, cats were never bred for much of anything else except for what they're already good at -- catching rodents and being cute.
