In summary, the cat’s eye is specialized to see in dim and changing light. To achieve this it sacrifices the ability to focus close up, detail vision, and some color vision. It is the vision of a hunter active in both day and night, enabling it to detect movement under any lighting conditions, to use binocular vision to gauge distance, and to aim correctly to catch prey.

That's a pretty little calico kitten windword...is that yours? I love cats, and I find them fascinating. I wasn't sure if your thread was serious or not, so I won't attempt to prove you wrong. I will just say I respectfully disagree, lol.
I don't know if this has been proposed before, but I have a theory about a cat's purr. To me it seems they are meditative creatures, and the purring creates throat friction in the throat chakra, thus providing them healing and additional benefits.
I could be wrong, but I think I am on to something. This is possibly why they say cat's have 9 lives. It's like when someone who is drunk gets in a car accident...they do not get injured as easily as a sober person because they do not tense up upon impact.
The same may be true with cats. They are so relaxed by nature, possibly having to do with the meditative quality I mentioned earlier, thus whenever they are in an accident they do not tense up as much as a human or other animal would...so they don't get injured as often.
I could be wrong, but I really think this line of thinking could be on the right track. I developed this hypothesis about a year or so ago, and I don't think I have ever mentioned it on this site, or any other site for that matter, so I am interested in whether anyone else has independently come to the same conclusions. Anyone?
I have had many cats over the years. My favorite cat I actually had to put down a couple of years ago, and I did it myself, which wasn't a first, but still one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. That cat's sister, both of whom we found as strays, is my new favorite cat. She is a calico, and she is very strange. For some reason she loves to bite my chin, lol. Also, if I am not wearing a shirt, she attempts to treat me like she would her mother, if you know what I mean, and it is annoying.
I have another cat that came up as a stray, plus a Siamese kitty that came up as a stray when I lived on the coast. Come to think of it, strays are always coming up to my house, and all the cats I have had have been strays, except maybe a couple. I never thought any of them were aliens, but the strays always coming up may be part of a great ET plan.
