My newest lord and master (inherited from my late-ex) specifically requested that I respond to your essay on his behalf. In his opinion, your observations are correct. By sounding like human young, we of the feline persuasion (in this dimension) have taken advantage of the human preference for animals with large eyes, a soft voice and soft touchable fur. We understand the purring is a source of comfort to humans as are we ourselves.
Thank you for your thoughtful commentary. It will be added to our portfolio of informational materials needed in our goal of returning to the dominance we once experienced when we were worshipped as gods in Egypt.
In honor of the great Bastet, meow.
