HA! Cats get their revenge (again)

Security 4

This is probably one of those things in which the data was misinterpreted or a link found where none exists but it is stil, somewhat, mildly interesting from the perspective of one who owns a cat.

In a nutshell, if you own a cat or have owned/lived with a cat in the past, you are less likely to die from a heart attack than someone who has not lived with a cat. Including if you lived with dogs.

As far as the security tag, think of it as security for your heart. As to the cats getting their revenge again, I'll give you a hint in case nothing is ringing a bell: black death

it's all about taste (1)

cats like to eat people. old people. ever notice how when people get really, really old and close to the end how the cats flock around? they take the long view though. they don't want to eat you until you are good and aged. this is why they use their cat powers to extend the lives of their owners, until they have achieved that perfect ripeness.

You got the beginnings of either a children's book or a Horror short story there.

So what you're saying is that cats age people like people age wine and cheese.
