Civets ain't cats!
Sure, they're in the "Feliformia" suborder, but then again so are hyenas and mongooses. Civets are their own type of mammal, and instead of being stereotypically lazy and self-centered Westerners - lumping an exotic type of animal into a grouping with one we're intimately familiar with - we should bother to take the time and make the effort to simply add civets to our mental list of kinds of animals.
Ziti isn't spaghetti, lychees aren't nuts, and civets aren't cats!

I've always wondered how they get the kitties to eat so many coffee beans. Don't they get the jitters?

I'd avoid the coffee anyway - the conditions many civets are kept in are dire.
If you manage to get free range or wild coffee, there's no guarantee of quality - how can you be sure the civet will eat the best beans?
