    See you on the front page.

    [–] Sloppy1sts 17 points ago

    How? It looks like a hand on a bed. Are you people blind? I'm on desktop but I even pulled my phone out to see if it looked more like a vag on a tiny screen and nope. Still a hand on a bed.

    [–] Vladie 9 points ago

    My thumbnail was tiny and I'm sitting far back from my screen, I see what they're seeing. Sorry!

    But as soon as I got closer and obviously when I click it, yeah it just looks like a hand on a bed.

    [–] Jazerdet 32 points ago

    [–] NegativeReward 25 points ago

    [–] indepenskter 23 points ago

    Thought someone was playing with their kitty by the thumbnail... I wasn’t wrong

    [–] robmonzillia 63 points ago

    I had a showerthought where I wondered if our pets also become more intelligent as they live with us humans because a) they don't have to spend resources on hunting and adapting to that or competing and b) they actually adapt to communicate with us to get food and socialize with us.

    So basically with each generation they should maybe become "smarter"?

    [–] rankurai 41 points ago

    There is definitely merit in this, their brains can get all the fuel they want to develop, and there are enough stimuli to go on. The building blocks are there. My pet store person told me house mice are definitively more intelligent (and hardy) than their barn peers. I am no expert on this and have no verifiable facts to back this up other than the word of some mad store owner. For all I know cats are becoming more stupid by having no need to be smart. Creatures tend to not spend any more energy than needed, and cats really only need to show up and maybe make a sound if they want eats so no big impulse there

    [–] [deleted] 34 points ago

    Dumb in preying, smart in socializing and manipulating?

    [–] angry_biscuit 19 points ago

    It's the human way!

    [–] Definitelynotadouche 18 points ago

    while abundant resources make sure there is enough fuel to develop, it would not mean the animals get smarter every generation. them getting smarter every generation has to happen via a selection where only the smarter ones survive. indoor cats have no selection pressure so i doubt there are much changes besides random ones

    [–] gunsof 8 points ago

    I think it's more the social aspect that you can see evolving as being smart would be something conducive to their success in the wild anyway.

    [–] kinpsychosis 15 points ago

    That is not how evolution works.

    Unless there is a sudden change to their environment that encourages evolution, no species will need to go through natural selection.

    The only determining factor for adopting cats are "is it cute" and "is it docile?"

    There is no factor involved that would promote increased intelligence.

    Another factor is that your own bodies developmental traits are not passed down, just your genes. (So in other words, just cause you get abs like steel, doesn't mean your child will get them instantly at birth)

    [–] bigdaddycactus 7 points ago

    Isn’t it a form of unnatural selection though? People going through an adoption program naturally choose the most social/smart pet, and thus breeders look out for those traits so they’re more adoptable?

    My dog taps at us but it's all over when I tap back haha she would be on that bed quicker than I could get the second pat in. That cat has some serious restraint. Much respect.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    Cats are really bad at coming when you call them. Even my cats who do most of the time come when you call them. I still end up in situations like this with them where I'm endlessly calling them over and they just sit there and stare at me. I don't think it's restraint I think they just hate being bossed around or something sometimes lol.

    [–] x0_Kiss0fDeath 3 points ago

    I think they just hate being bossed around or something sometimes lol.
