Cats have evolved to a higher level of F00DZ and scritches.

The wild feline household cats are descended from look a lot like them.
But sounds a lot different. Over time, cats have evolved to have a voice with a similar frequency to that of human infants. This makes it harder to ignore them.

Aaaaand this is why the normals don't trust cat people. You'll notice the stereotype isn't a crazy dog lady.

Have you ever noticed that cat shows don't have a "working group"?

Cats evolved meowing generally solely as a method to communicate with humans feral cats do not meow nor do any wild, never domesticated ones.  Dog's adaptation to humans is much more dramatic because of their double stranded DNA and the ease with which you can introduce physical mutations into it.  Cat's evolutionary changes are equally massive but far less obvious having gone from a solitary predator to a cooperative hunter/forager

As a far better writer than I once wrote:

The best beloved beast of Underearth was nothing other than the serpent. Down below in the bright shadows, he was admired for his grace and elegance, and for his cool blood and wicked self-command. Presently the demons, innocent then, or merely extremely cynical, brought the snake up to the earth, supposing thereby to make men also fall in love with him. But men took against the snake, scenting his demonical origins, mistrusting his lack of legs and ears, his smart teeth and implacable garment. Indeed, they turned on the snake, threw him out of doors when he came in, brained him with mallets when they were able and cursed him and spat on him when they were not.

            The Eshva mourned for the serpent, for they loved him best of all. The Vazdru said to each other: "Let us trick mankind into adoration of the snake." And this they did by various means, causing him here and there to be elected a god and worshipped, or venerated as useful in magic.

            But one of the day-nights in Druhim Vanasta, certain Vazdru princes began to bet with each other that they could persuade men to like the snake himself.  And this they tried, and this they failed at.

            At last the vexatious problem came to the notice of Azhrarn. And accordingly Azhrarn went by night to the world to listen to men's opinion of the snake. "How we abhor his cold scales," they complained. "And his teeth, which are sometimes venomous, and his forked tongue, which might be. And how allergic we are to his leglessness. He is all tail, and the sound of his hiss causes our hair to rise up like bristles."

            Then Azhrarn smiled, and he went back to Druhim Vanasta. There he took up a snake and he inquired, "Would it be worth while to you, in order to win the affection of mankind, to be a little changed?"
            "Of what good is mankind's affection?" asked the snake.
            "Those they love," said Azhrarn, "fare well. And those they hate they harm."
            The snake had heard reports from his cousins concerning mallets, and after some thought, he agreed.
            Then Azhrarn conducted the snake to the Drin, and the Drin made for the snake particular extras, which had all to do with what men had said they disliked about him. First the Drin made him four muscular little legs with four round little paws on the ends of them. And then they make him two little pointed ears to stand up on top of his head. Then they bulked out his body with a cunning device, and straightened his tongue with another - but it remained in fact a thin tongue, and in fact a great deal of tail remained to him at the back. Next they made him an overcoat of long soft black grasses, and decorated his face - which was now very pretty - with ornaments of fine silver wire. His jewel-like eyes, which had always been quite wonderful, they had need to alter only a jot. Lastly, to compensate for removing his venom, (although they left the shape of his teeth alone), they presented him with some sharp slivers of steel to wear in his round feet for purposes of self-defense.
            When Azhrarn beheld the result, he laughed, and ran his hand over the new animal's spine. At which all was transmuted into flesh and muscle, and the coat of grass into luxuriant, velvety hair. And at the touch of Azhrarn also, the new animal made a strange sound, not a hiss, but -
            "My dear, you are purring," said Azhrarn, and again he laughed.
            To this day, no cat can bear to be laughed at, even in love.

           However, sure enough, The animal, legged, eared and furry, was an enormous success on earth. Men were pleased by his grace and elegance, admired his cool blood and wicked self-command. And when he grew sometimes peeved, forgot himself, and hissed - they did not remember the snake, but remarked: "There is the cat, hissing." Nor did they notice how both the cat and the snake slew mice, or enjoyed milk, though both became the pets of sorcerers. And men never would credit that if they overlooked the fur and held flat the two pointed ears of the cat, then and now, you might see still the wedge-shaped demon head and the sharp teeth of the serpent, poised there, under your hand.

Interestingly enough, the team assigned to market Febreze found that cat owners could not smell their own cats. They couldn't sell the spray as an anti-stink product because people didn't think their home stank, even though a guest's eyes might be watering. The product only took off after they increased the fragrance (the active ingredient has no odor) and changed marketing.

Cat crap in fresh litter, in a closed cupboard, and in another room, can still stink up the place.

I have an overly good nose, which is way too sensitive.  Even non smokers say they can't smell a thing when they come over.  I can't tolerate an empty beer can much less anything stronger.
But yes most cat owners are oblivious and I despise them, if I can smell their house walking up to it, I refuse to go inside.

I have no pets. My friends have four cats, all strictly indoors. Their house does not smell of cat because they are clean people.

My cats are, by far, the best entertainment system I have found. Today one of them ran in place for five seconds, Road Runner style, while trying to chase a laser pointer on a wood floor.

Mine sometimes gets annoyed at his own tail and will chase it on my computer chair. It then falls over waking the other cat who will start a fight.

It's all good fun because 10 seconds later they're grooming each other.
