Deep in its cat brain, below its awareness, a cat has the genetic knowledge that you are made of meat.

There is an old saying about cats and (pardon my bringing the great furry oafs into this discussion) dogs:

If you bring a dog in out of the cold, give it shelter and food, and a warm place to sleep, it thinks you're God.

That pretty much sums up cats, IMHO.
