      Cats are not wild animals. They are thoroughly domesticated and so significantly less aggressive, more tolerant, and more social. They are happier indoors, and unlike their wild ancestors they do best with another cat as a steady companion. Do not confuse yourself because wild/domestic hybrids are fricking everywhere, domestic dogs and cats are not wild animals and even if humans abandon them, they will carry the genetic and physiological markers of domestication for tens of thousands of years.

    Not all domestications are equal. Horses and camels, for example, are domesticated but neither act like dogs. Cats started out as just predators hanging out around graneries and homes, humans noticed they caught vermin, and so either tolerated them or outright celebrated them. The cats did not give a shit, and were bred pretty much to continue to not give a shit and just keep catching vermin. The end.

      Horses are social and one of the most intelligent animals on earth. Camels are also social but not as intelligent, this makes them very easy to domesticate. "Domestic" cats are literally still wild animals, there is zero difference between them and their wild ancestor, the north african wild cat. They behave exactly alike.

                fixed that for you. people have been keeping pet wolves forever, they're just more aggressive dogs that need more space.

                the only real difference between a wolf and a dog is less threat processing, some mild neurosis and the duration of their socialization window
                coincidentally this is the only real difference between wild and domestic cats, less threat processing, some mild neurosis and the duration of their socialization window

                some domestic individuals will be less competent hunters or only stalk things without attacking them, with cats and dogs. the only difference is that with dogs, we separated those morons into their own special ed groups because some forms of moronation are helpful, and with cats we let the intermingle so you have a grab bag of 50 different kinds of special needs animals because nobody really cares if a cat does anything beyond sitting on your lap.

                why is this thread full of irrationally angry people

                because anon is an incel who worships cats. his ego is tied up in "owning le piece of le wilds" and it makes him feel less like a slave driver/animal abuser if he does not believe his pet was selectively bred to serve him

                however, it was. you can abandon a cat without many consequences because they are small, which makes people think cats are wild, but they aren't. you can do the same thing with dogs, chickens, even goats, just turn them loose and pretend they aren't domesticated.

                you can get feral dogs and feral cats that behave a little more like wild animals too, because they spend multiple generations without humans

                I knew someone with a pet wolf and it was essentially a more nervous siberian husky that was harder to train.

                But if you have a pet wild cat and don't socialize and train it well, nothing happens, it just hides under chairs and swipes at ankles.
                If you have a pet wolf and don't socialize and train it well, it hides under couches and bites off ankles. The same as a dog that isn't trained and socialized.

                It's just harder to raise to behave normally.

      Cats are extremely stupid, they can’t even pass the string test, making them pretty much incapable of judging you, so stop giving them fictional characteristics. What pride tho? The human one or the lion one? The typical house cat displays neither of those. But the dog does exhibit the loyalty trait, which is a real one that comes naturally for them, and hating them for that makes you a jealous catgay. Probably brazilian too.

        As always Wauf is ahead of the curve and predicts mainstream culture

        By 2030 it will be seen as animal abuse to expect your cat to be anything but a recreational companion animal and having a cat outside of your property or a designated off-leash cat area without a leash will be a crime.

        Toxo deaths will plummet. Just like thousands of years ago, people would have miscarriages and blind children from parasites spread by free ranging dogs, and no one cared then, because "dogs belong outside because they are free and need to be free, just pray to god to avoid bad spirits", today's "cats need to be free you frickin...dog sex enthusiast! everyone should just have perfect hygiene and food safety!" will be seen as ridiculous.

    We had a naturally mutualistic relationship, we hoarded food which attracted rodents, and cats figured out we were an easy source of prey so they stuck around, and in turn we left them to their own devices because it was nice not finding rat shit in your grain reserve. Dogs needed to be tamed and bred into more docile beings because wolfs are hierarchical creatures, so there was a genuine benefit to it as it would solve the issues of authority which are inevitable with pack animals. Like you dont want your pet to fight against you to get your hand on the prey you hunted together.

                Anticat posts fall into three categories, environmentalist extremism, console wars false flagging by people who are literally seething that some people prefer dogs to Mohammed’s preferred pet, and tantruming schizos who shit up the board in every direction every time one of their schizo threads gets jannied (bugguy and allosaur researcher/paleoschizo to name two).

                Only the first is authentic.

                It's not "anti-cat" to tell you to keep your pet inside where they won't die 16 years early after spreading infant mortality: the parasite around the neighborhood.

                it's not "anti cat" to tell you that there are no animal based pest control solutions that are not as bad as the pests themselves and the only thing that works is cleaning your shit up and using traps and poison like a civilized man.

                that is very pro cat, because deranged cat worshipers have a strong tendency to get all their cats killed by letting them roam and "get rid of the rats" (rat status: still there. wheel well status: ew!)

                is it "anti dog" to tell people to follow leash laws and train their mutts not to bark? is it "anti dog" to insist that dogs that attack people should be euthanized? or is it pro dog, because it extends dogs lives and allows them to exist here without giving us a reason to just holocaust the whole species?

                dog people are more reasonable when they finally pull their dicks out of them so you know the answer. follow suit. :^)

    It has to do with the time frame and purpose.
    Paleolithic man engaged in persistence hunting, which is tracking prey over long distances. Every time it stops to eat, or sleep, you and your hunting party were making up time until eventually your prey was too exhausted to run anymore and you and your caveman bros just dogpiled on it until its heart exploded, or your stove in its head with a rock.
    Wolves also utilize this hunting technique, and are one of the few animals that can keep pace with humans over distance, eventually the two groups realized they could collectively be more effective than they were independent, and a relationship was formed.
    Cat domestication came about once agriculture took hold. People staying in one place, storing grain, attracting rodents, and cats liked hunting said rodents, people liked the cats, and so they started caring for the cats in exchange for them chasing off pests.

      But the cats never chased off pests, ever. They gave the appearance of chasing off pests, but they just made the pets cautious enough to be below humans notice.
      https://travislongcore.net/2021/05/15/no-chicago-feral-cats-dont-control-rats/
      The amount of grain 100 rats consume each night in a store room is within a 1% accounting error... early man did not have digital scales, and the rats were eating more than just the grain.

        Cats are mouse repelents, not rats. A cat can take down a rat but most of the times it is too much trouble and too risky to bother doing so. Mice on the other hand are hardwired to avoid areas with cats https://www.science.org/content/article/scent-makes-mice-run-scared

        We bred some dog breeds to hunt rats, cats are for smaller stuff, the fact that some cats can take down prey as big as themselves is just the icing of the cake, their main function is as mice repellent.

          I have bad news for you. The cat only works once in its entire life and then it's a very weak effect.

          >https://pethealthnetwork.com/news-blogs/a-vets-life/could-mice-be-attracted-cat-urine
          >Research found that mice can become accustomed to the presence of a chemical found in the urine of cats and are less likely to flee when they smell that chemical. The chemical is appropriately called “felinine,” and when nursing baby mice were exposed it during the study, and again later in life it was found that the expected, terror-filled flight did not occur.
          >While they don’t run from the scent, the mice’s brains did produce the same stress hormones as the control group. They just don’t act on it.
          Mice or cats would go extinct if cats always scared off their prey and mice never lived anywhere a cat pissed once. Don't be dumb.

          They come back later and produce smaller litter sizes. This has an evolutionary advantage. If there is strong predation pressure, the mouse will be more successful investing more resources into fewer but more resilient offspring. Cats are relatively passive predators that mostly hunt juveniles, especially weak stragglers, so fewer but stronger mice have better chances of having at least some offspring survive long enough to reproduce.

          Ultimately, nothing really gets rid of mice except cleaning up your mess and maintaining your building. Maybe invest in glue traps and a bucket trap because cats will do dumb shit like save a mouse corpse on top of your fridge or under your bed. Cats are not FDA approved pest control for a reason. They will even use your grain as a litterbox the same as a mouse will.

            the difference between "get rid of the pests so you don't get hantavirus" and a stone age moron doing the best they can is kind of relevant

            consider for a moment that humans are not at all intelligent, they need to be trained to be. early humans were literally too dumb to get rid of mice so if cats got them slightly fewer mice that weren't seen as often that was an upgrade.

            now we're all trained to actually use our brains and apply technology instead of prayer, so we can actually get rid of mice. but that's us, not some primitive rock stackers in north africa or illiterate medieval peasants that thought sicknesses were spread by invisible clouds of a magic sky man's wrath.

            You're too late

            It didn't even take a few centuries for the eternal anglo to try out his cripplehammer on cats. Prior to that, they were merely domesticated, the same as the korean jindo dog. And now, they are so much more. So much worse.

            If the anglo's punishment of the dog is to strip it of as much of its ancestry as possible and make it so that no one would ever assume it came from wolves (the golden retriever and pug are the anglo's ideal dogs - totally unrecognizable as coming from nature. the anglo HATES anything that looks anything like a wolf which is why he made the german shepherd look like a roach)... then the anglo has decided to punish the cat, for its laziness in failing to ever get rid of his rat problem, by making it so dumb it could never deign to work at all.

            "If you'll bother my sheep then I'll make you too much of an eternal child to feed yourself from a closed bag of food"
            "And since I still have rats and you love sleeping too much how about I make you too dumb to do anything but sleep?"

            The anglo hates animals. And he hates nature.

              Shit this reminds me of women in some places, but outside of that It reminds me of what anglos did to pidgeons, ducks and many other creatures, some of the anglo only breeds are in constant pain, sport (or rather lack in some cases) things they shouldn't, like this pigeon breed with holes in It's head that can't even properly see anymore, I guess we must protect as many of the non afflicted ones from falling in the hands of poor moral having breeders but that feels impossible these days

    Cats are really dumb and basically already do what we want them to on their own. No point in domesticating small cats to the same extent as dogs, and domesticating a big cat is suicide when its walnut suddenly activates predator mode and snaps your little prey neck.
