The Catnip Boys of Comedy™ explore the evolution of (lack of) domestic of our toxoplasmic friends.
Most domesticated animals have been drastically shaped by humans. Livestock has been bred to our tastes. We selected the best horses and donkeys to lug us around. Humans domesticated wolves into hundreds of unrecognizable dogs with looks, traits, and personalities to suit our specific preferences. Yet, in the thousands of years that cats have lived with humans, they have stubbornly remained unchanged.
Cats are independent creatures who seem to be able to take or leave us. It seems we may need them more than they need us. That is certainly the cast with the one cat that The CBC™ cannot live without. MUM mascot Yoshi recently used up his first of 9 lives and there is a vet bill to prove it. To raise funds, we are running a merch sale for Ramin’s cat.
