Cats, being relatives of some of the most dangerous creatures on the planet, had to have gotten to the point of being house kitties somehow. Self-domestication seems to have been the way they did it- coming in and deciding that it's better to get pampered by these puny humans than to go through the hardships outside alone. And apparently, this act of domesticating oneself is not a thing of the past.
Everyone, say hi to Ghost, the cat who was born into a feral cat colony, walked into tchaikovsgay's life (and house) one day and simply never left. She's adorable, she had the cutest toof, she loves belly rubs, and we are probably almost as happy as she is for having found her forever home.
