You can come to terms with the fact that cats are, in fact, dangerous predators that may murder and devour you if they get their hands on your food. It’s not a joke: There are several studies out there showing that the creatures are “neurotic,” “unstable,” and capable of devouring you without giving a second thought if they were large enough.
That horrifying and cute look inside your pet’s thoughts while it happily scavenges whatever feathery toy you purchased from the pet store or your previous shopping trip. But it’s Caturday, so we won’t be worrying about any of that for now. Just sit back and enjoy your internet holiday.
