More is going on here. The cat wants the prey in a noticeable or "central" place (though not necessarily thinking of it as a gift). If it really wanted a "safe place" the mouse or whatever would be left in more of a hiding place such as under a sofa. Cats often leave the prey in prominent places such as (for an outdoor cat) the entrance to a house and for our indoor cat the bottom step of the flight up from the ground floor.

Some cats (particularly when younger) will "play fetch". Our cat used to hunt tampax from their secret lair in the box in the cabinet in the bathroom and bring them to us. Throw them and she would bring them back. I guess she thought our location defined "the nest" and that was the proper place for such prey. I wonder if there are any sex differences in "playing fetch" because female cats are more into nesting than male.

Cats have been bred for purpose? No, they have been domesticated to either kill rodents or be a companion. There are less than 40 breeds of cats, with over 95% of the global population either a domestic short-hair or a domestic long-hair, also known as mutts. It's one of the reasons why they suffer from few genetic disorders, as opposed to dogs.

This is probably correct.

I've worked at a rescue and there are plenty of cats that hate other cats but like people or vice versa. Cats can differentiate species. That a cat treats human they like like cats is probably the most astute thing I have ever heard on the topic. You must be some kind of animal scientician.

Seriously, it's not cats treating us like cats, it cats just acting like cats. (or more like perma-kittens).

How do they know you're the one who does it?

They have eyes and ears. They always come to investigate when they hear scratching around in the litter.


Our cats come to investigate when the litter box is being scooped.  Which usually leads to the following conversation between the cat and my wife.

Wife:  If you've got to go, go ahead and go now, before I scoop.
Cat:  No, I'm fine.  Not sure if I really need to go.  But I'll just hang out and watch you.
Wife:  Please use the box before I scoop.
Cat:  Naw, I'm good.

Five minutes after the box is scooped, the cat unleashes shock and awe on the nice, pristine litterbox.

re: vocalization.  On occasion my wife will do something that pisses my cat off and she (the cat) will let loose a stream of invective that if we understood cat, would most likely make us either really mad, or blush.

maxheck: NathanAllen: Still don't buy their explanation of Presenting. My opinion is that they are saying, "look here I too can provide food."

Example: used to live in an apartment where the upstairs outdoor cat would present an average of two to three on our stairs and more than five on his owner's stairs... A day.

Agreed. I had Mort, whom the local rabbits and mice must have seen as a death god. You didn't go out on the porch barefoot without looking first because he was always leaving half-bunnies right in front of the door.

Obviously he didn't prefer Friskies, otherwise he'd have left whole carcasses once his toy stopped wriggling.


I think the whole gifting thing is more social in nature. We are big, don't spend any time hunting and can be called on for protection, so we somewhat fit into the role of the male lion. Male lions are brought food by the rest of the pride. The gifting acknowledges us as part of the family/clan/pack/clowder/pride.

That's not entirely true. Cats don't typically meow to other cats, but since humans don't respond to body language and scent clues, they learn to vocalize to get your attention. They treat you in some ways as though you were another cat, but they do adapt their behavior in others because they know you're not one.

/pretty much figured out a long time ago that cats do see us as honorary cats, especially if the humans in question do know a bit of kitty body language


This is probably why the cat who currently lives with us never talks to me unless I'm trying to ignore him.  I can read feline body language fairly well.  It's not that hard, really.  It's all in how they carry themselves, their head height/angle, their ears and whiskers, and their tail disposition.  I'm also the only one who he'll play rough with - he would not dare bite or jump at anybody else.  Then he goes back to his happy/friendly body language for a bit and goes away - "I ain't mad, you're good folk, but I'm going to go over here now."

My Mom had a pair of near-identical twin cats, and she was shocked that I could tell them apart upon first meeting them.  Well, yeah, it's simple.  One was brash and bold and outgoing, always held his tail and head high.  The other one was nervous and easily spooked and always slunk around with his head/tail low and would skitter away quickly if he felt even more threatened than normal.  Frankly, I was shocked that she couldn't see the difference until after I pointed it out.

This--whilst cats are comparatively closer to their origin wild ancestors and largely self-domesticated, there ARE some known ethological differences in domestic cat behaviour versus that of the ancestral wild cats (particularly the African wildcat species residing in the Levant which is the immediate ancestor of domestic cats).

One of the differences is with vocalisation (domestic cats are definitively more "meowy" and studies have shown that they do have distinct meows for interacting with humans); another is that domestic cats (including ferals) are decidedly more eusocial (unlike their wild ancestors, there is a higher tolerance of "cats per square acre", and communal queening is known in feral cat colonies and domestic catteries--the phenomenon of multiple female cats caring for litters or having "communal litters" is pretty much unknown in modern cats aside from lions).

It's probably best ethologically to think of cats essentially treating humans as "honorary cats"...big, derpy cats who are utterly noseblind, but Honorary Members Of The Clowder nonetheless.

(And for folks who don't know that "ethology" word--ethology is to critters as sociology is to us humans.  It's pretty much how "pet psychologists" work--they're really pet ethologists, think of 'em as "dog and cat sociologists" and you get the idea.)

You may think your cat loves you. You may think it shows compassion. You may think there's even some connection, like a mutual understanding. All of this is false. All your cat wants to do is murder you. You might catch them stalking you, but they seldom strike because you're massive; that's why they sit on the steps in the dark, because cats understand that you are susceptible to gravity, and they know how to make things look accidental.

One of my cats would freak out easily if he saw an unfamiliar cat in the yard.  He'd slink down low and his tail would poof out dramatically.

To this day, I still laugh at the thought of how he might react if I took a dump in his litterbox and buried it for him to find later.  "OMG what in this house DID THAT? WTF!!!"


Funny idea, but not a good one. Many cats are particular about where they poop and won't even share a box with another cat. So if you poop in the cat's box, the cat will most likely interpret that as a violation of his territory, and hostilities will ensue, most likely in the form of the cat marking YOUR territory every chance he gets.

What else are cats going to do if not the things they're capable of as cats?  Does the author expect them to read to us the daily paper in the King's english?

The underlying premise is that cats can't tell the difference between creatures that are CLEARLY different genetically and anatomically.  And obviously this is not the case, as evidenced by their behavior toward other animals.

I agree.
Dogs do the same thing (sniffing crotch/butts, submissive/dominant behavior, will howl if you play an instrument etc.). Cats and Dogs can just as easily be behaving this way because that's how they roll, not because they are doing the equivalent of anthropomorphizing you (animalization?).

He may still be right, though. Feral cats are still around and available to many house cats for reproduction, and have been for centuries. I suspect it would have been much harder for a dog to find a wolf to mate with (or vice versa).

My Orange is an idiot, plain and simple..but the smartest, sweetest, most cunning and brutal idiot a cat could be..

Lost both his brothers when we moved from 'city' to BFE-here (really..  Last census I can find has the whole town a bit over 900 pop and ethnic breakdown includes 1 'african american' and 0.7 of 'asian' descent..  *0.7*..!!!  How the he11 do you get *that* figure..?!?!), over two years ago..and I was *certain* he was the one that rural life would kill inside a week..  Ghost and Silver were both gone within five months..  :/

He sees the two other humans in the house as adversaries..and they are..they actively dislike him, even though they were the two who brought the trio home as kittens..  Maybe they resent him for surviving..?  Dunno..  Mind you, they are not cruel to him and keep up with food, water and doing best can be done to make sure he's back inside on bad weather nites..  I honestly think they don't consciously realize I keep food and water for him up in my room (my bad, I meant "My Evil Operational Central Nexus of Pending Global Domination"), and I am not about to disabuse them of the notion..

The tortoises and fish are transparent to him.  No impact or attention at all.  Now, I understand it with the torts..they're just rocks that move a little faster than other rocks..but the fish..?  No clue..that was a bit of a surprise..

Now, the snake (up in my room)..?  He'll paw at her screen when she's out and active..pads only, no claws..  Really, she's far more aggressive towards him and I keep them apart fer the cat's safety..  ;P

Then come the dogs..two 90+lb Black Labs..father and son..  We got Orange when the dad was around 3 and before the son came on the scene..  He regards them as really big and stupid cats..that he's in charge of..  The elder treats him as an equal and the younger *tries* to treat him as a brother and a toy..  The 'toy' part is just 'bout when Orange sends the pup (Bandit) yipping away to contemplate his transgressions and nurse a sore nose..

Myself..?  That's a hard call..  I range from provider, defender, furniture, food source, skritchies on demand, warm mattress on a cold night, companion, servant, slave, litterbox maintenance technician, scratching post, sanctuary, etc, etc, etc..

Wow.  I've sure been talk'y the last 24..  Anyways, that's *my* cat..  :D

My outside orange cat I've never met just likes the food I put out for him/her. I don't know if it belongs to someone or was just dumped by some typical city person. It needs to stop farking with my quail friends.

My remaining cat dropped a live mouse on my forehead while I was sleeping six years ago, and to this day I'm unsure about whether or not he was showing me how to hunt or telling me to fark off.  One thing is for sure, I didn't sleep in the bedroom again until that mouse was caught.  I briefly toyed with idea of not feeding the cat until he learned mice were food, but my wife nixed it.

FNG: Oh, and yes, the kittens get table scraps and eat what we do, in addition to their normal food.


mine are fairly particular. the oldest one goes wild for seafood, especially shrimps. the siamese female...really only eats her dry food. but the big fat scottish fold...anything creamy...yougurt, sourcream, butter. he also will try to eat anything that moves. carrot tops, onion ends, and garlic peels. idiot.

My cat does not think of me as non-hostile.

He thinks of me as his ally in his never ending battle to repel neighborhood cats, dogs, raccoons, squirrels, foxes, bobcats, great horned owls, and other assorted vermin from using his dirt baths, gravel baths, and litter boxes.
