Cats are in control

Who is the boss in the house: you or your cat? The answer is obvious - it's a cat!

It turns out that domestic cats can use purring as a means of manipulating their owners. In particular, purring, they force the owners to feed them.

This is the conclusion of a group of scientists from the University of Sussex, led by Professor Karen McComb, who noticed that the purr of a cat, which people used to associate with pleasure, sometimes becomes very persistent and unpleasant. She asked 10 cat owners to record the sounds their pets make.

These sounds were then listened to by volunteers and they sorted them from unpleasant to pleasant. As a result, most of the people, among whom were those who have never had cats, called rumbling during food demands the most annoying.

Analysis of records showed that there are scientific reasons for this. So, in the annoying purring of cats, there are high-pitched sounds, the frequencies of which coincide with the frequencies of children's crying.

But, as Karen McComb notes, not all cats use such rumbling: it makes sense only if the cat lives with one owner, and not in a large family, where, behind conversations and general noise, rumbling is quite possible to miss ears.
