6 Adorable Cat Behaviors With Shockingly Evil Explanations

6 Adorable Cat Behaviors With Shockingly Evil Explanations
Imitating Snakes to Intimidate You Anyone who has ever witnessed a visceral deathmatch between two angry cats is intimately aware of the blood curdling noises the cute little animals are able to create. Besides the demonically drawn out "Mrrrroww" that emanates from the very bowels of Hell itself, when a cat feels threatened, they always turn to the tried and true hiss. Lots of animals make this noise when in the throes of battle, but why? It turns out that when a cat pushes its ears down, bares its fangs, squints its slivered eyes and hisses, it closely resembles another animal that is naturally feared and avoided by most predators: the snake. Cooobraaaa!! Cats, like many other animals, from butterflies to birds, instinctively employ the art of mimicry in order to best defend themselves from attack. So the next time you piss off your kitty and it hisses at you, it's not just showing its disapproval. Obsessively Getting Rid of the Stench of Humans Hmmm... that's strange. Cats love murder.

5 Retarded Superstitions (With Logical Explanations) This Irish symbol is possibly the most well-known good luck charm in the world, which is somewhat odd considering the whole "luck of the Irish" thing is a bit of an oxymoron (historians say it originates from the fact that the world just seems luckier when you're inebriated). Where the Hell Did This Come From? The simplest reason the four-leaf clover is considered lucky is because they're so rare, with only around one in 10,000 clovers sporting four leaflets. "Just a few more clovers and I'll be back on top!" The use of clover as a lucky charm dates back to pre-Christian times when Druidism was the religion of the day in Ireland. Clover is also edible and, in fact, quite nutritious. Now with a chocolate version, for those who don't have the time to wait to develop diabetes. Millions of people each year buy rabbit's feet keychains and such hoping they'll bring them good luck and prosperity. Ever wonder how rabbits wound up among the Easter decorations?

The Sand Cat – Desert Cat Extraordinaire Don’t be fooled by the off the scale cuteness quotient. This is the Sand Cat – or Felis margarita, a little known species of desert cat. In the wild it lives in areas that are too hot and dry for any other cat- the deserts of Africa and Asia, including the Sahara. It is the only desert species of cat known to us. As such, this cat is one tough cookie. It also lives in the Arabian desert and those of Iran and Pakistan, yet despite being so widespread it was not described by a European until 1858. He named it Felis margarita after Jean August Margueritte. To an extent the sand cat could be mistaken for a domestic cat but there are differences, noticeably the very broad head. Likewise with their height – they usually grow to about six centimeters taller than the domestic cat. One difference from the cats that we know which is difficult to see in these pictures is the fur that the cats have between their toes. As they mostly eat rodents, they do a lot of digging.

6 Insane Discoveries That Science Can't Explain We like to feel superior to the people who lived centuries ago, what with their shitty mud huts and curing colds by drilling a hole in their skulls. But we have to give them credit: They left behind some artifacts that have left the smartest of modern scientists scratching their heads. For instance, you have the following enigmas that we believe were created for no other purpose than to fuck with future generations. The Voynich Manuscript The Mystery: The Voynich manuscript is an ancient book that has thwarted all attempts at deciphering its contents. It appears to be a real language--just one that nobody has seen before. Translation: "...and when you get her to put the tennis racket in her mouth, have her stand in a fountain for a while. There is not even a consensus on who wrote it, or even when it was written. Why Can't They Solve It? Could you? Don't even try. As you can imagine, proposed solutions have been all over the board, from reasonable to completely clownshit. Our Guess:

Poor Stupid Cat This is my cat. Her name is Lola, and she's not all there. When Lola was a kitten, she somehow got outside and drank antifreeze. She was never quite right after that. I decided to keep her indoors until she was an adult, because I didn't trust her to take care of herself outside. A couple years later, I decided to see if I could expand her horizons beyond the confines of my house. That was the last time I let her outdoors. Like a lot of cats, Lola liked to sleep in the sink. As time progressed, Lola developed a sort of guard dog mentality, growling quietly at company and stalking them as they moved from room to room. Back when she was a kitten, unfettered by the sweet allure of engine coolant, Lola's hunter instincts served her well. She still does this from time to time, always suddenly and without warning. She's pretty much a worthless cat, and it sort of bums me out. Even then, I have to hold her right in front of the moth before she'll grab at it.
