Humans do not make good pets. We're a headstrong, contrarian lot with a talent for creative violence and an inability to stay in our proper place -- or even recognize that such a concept might apply to us, at all. :)

Why do you think one of this planet's most purely dedicated, lethal predators, likes to live with us, so much? Other than the fact that we operate can-openers, I mean?

Well, one of the entertaining things about cats is that they're intelligent enough to try experimenting. Often this is annoying to the owner, especially since they aren't quite intelligent enough to know why experimenting with dropping wineglasses is frowned upon, but it's also fun to watch. Which goes back around to why Humans might be good pets:

"Oh look at him, Reglpexor; he's building a recursive neural network and not putting any learning weights against explosive propagation! Bless him, he think's he's people!"
