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.
