How come cats are so nonchalantly violent towards humans when we're so much bigger?

How come cats are so nonchalantly violent towards humans when we're so much bigger? It seems counterintuitive for survival.

    Some small prey animals have adapted for excessive aggression in order to intimidate even larger predators. Think about it like this: a porcupine is scary to predatora because of all its spines, right? If you're scratching and hissing and showing off, you basically have all those spines too, just that you have to use them instead of sit there and booty-bump predators to death. It's common mostly because the ancestral form of these animals have rudimentary offensive/defensive tools, so without any particular adaptations, throwing what you already have at increased predation typically results in better survival rates.

    Mine isn't really violent, just very annoying and refuses to listen. I think dogs are just better in general

    Because they chose the terms of their domestication and as such are shit pets that need to go back to being outside animals that eat pests.

      So did all pariah and primitive dog breeds. Huskies and Shiba Inu are as “domesticated” as cats. And yet they are great companions if you have a triple digit IQ and a sense of responsibility.

      The problem with cats is all the braindead owners who got them as cope pets for their extroverted workaholic lifestyle that basically forbids having pets, which have always been for introverted WFH types and families with stay at home members.

        Makes sense. Essentially the problem is people that think cats are "low maintenance pets" whose homes always smell like a litter box.

          This is so true, I've owned dogs for twenty years and just got this cat, he's anything but low maintenance, gives me way more trouble than any dog ever has. Trying to get out in the middle of the day, jumping on my dresser, the kitchen counter, acting like it's his house when it's not. Dogs I can just walk out the door and they'll patiently wait for me to return without wandering all over the place and getting into trouble

            >middle of the day
            Meant to say middle of the night, like 3:00 or 4:00 AM

            He will also blatantly ignore any treats or catnip I try to give him until it's left out on a counter or somewhere he can climb and reach it to get it himself. Very annoying

              Yeah most people pretend its not an issue and boot them outside. Then get mad when your husky runs them over with his car.

    When you are a small predator, you must be a vicious one to convince the larger creatures you are not worth trying to eat.
    Same thing with shrews, badgers, wolverines, etcetera.

    Notice the difference with big cats that mostly ignore or are very chill with humans, unless/until they decide the human is food.

    Cats aren't "nonchalantly" aggressive, you're just shit at reading cat body language
    As for why they attack things larger than them, the feline strategy for defending itself and its territory is to make the fight not worth the pain for the other animal.

      I guess that works for animals who don't want to score petty victories. Then again, aren't there plenty of bigger animals who are equally territorial?

        Coyotes just eat them. Smarter than a cat, faster than a cat. They can call their bluff and catch them on the run.

        But a cat could probably scare off a bear. Bears are retarded.
