Cats really do become part of our families, to the point that they take on human habits -- good and bad -- and adapt their lifestyle with that of their owners, says new research.
The finding shows how profoundly captivity can affect certain animals. While genetics help to explain some aspects of personality and behavior, an individual's environment clearly is a factor too.
"Our findings underline the high influence of human presence and care on the amount of activity and daily rhythm in cats," concluded Giuseppe Piccione and colleagues of the University of Messina's Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

I've always wondered that. Every night my cat sleeps by my feet and when my alarm goes off in the morning he hops right up. Eats when I do and comes running outside when I come home from work. Same schedule.

I notice when I gain weight so does the dog and cat.

I love cat threads, especially the pictures.
