Since cats got their cute claws around 9,500 decades back, people have had a romance with felines.Nowadays over 80 million cats live in U.S. houses, with an estimated three cats to get each and every dog on Earth.

They do not really know us how dogs do.Bradshaw recently shared a few of his secrets with National Geographic.How can you get into kitty behaviour?

[I see] cats in colonies which are free-ranging, and in animal shelters at which a few will be put together–you receive intriguing dynamics [when fresh cats have been introduced].I have also done marginally more hurtful things, like analyzing how cats play together with toys, or studying cat [behaviours] at various intervals of the day.
