A Brief History of Cats - Part 1

This is the source for a new touring theatre production scheduled to open in 2014 in Sydney, Australia (where they eat cats with relish).

Feline Domesticus (or Felidae Domesticus), the so-called domestic Cat is not domesticated at all, nor did it evolve from another species other than itself.

Like its larger relatives, the Cat is a relentless predator, merciless, unforgiving, an unpredictable wild creature, and it purrs.

As a pure carnivore, the Cat yearns for warm, still alive meat of animals, insects, and poets.

The Cat hates litter boxes, uses them to con its provider, prefers shoes and pillows.

The Cat does not enjoy sex. It fakes orgasms.

The Cat does not get high on catnip. Like sex, it fakes it.

Cats like dogs, especially smelly, furry, little dogs.

Cats believe that dogs and humans are part of the same species.

Cats do not die. They just fade away and reappear as other cats.

Cats did not evolve on this planet. They drifted here from another planet, far, far away (See Part 2.)
