Pfft, 'domesticated', like we had any control over them. You mean they had trained their human servants for much longer than we originally thought.

Paraphrasing Walt Kelly's comment on the then-new investigations of echolocation:
It should never be forgotten that, all the time we were domesticating cats, cats had an excellent opportunity to domesticate us.
(My two have declined to dignify this observation with a comment.)

Meaning cats were jerks who expected free stuff even longer than we thought.

Came here to say this, but not nearly as cleverly as Kelly.
