this just in today on Yahoo! news. Researchers found that cats control human through high pitch cries (get me food) and purring (am i cute or what? let me cuddle up with you where it is warm). Of course my cat friend Raven already knows about this.
Soon researchers will verify another well known fact, we shibas control our owners too with our shiba howls when they come home and feed us, and our silly antics so they would massage our backs. Hee, hee.
