Cats are strange companions. We never quite know where we stand with them. They're creatures that are by turns the best friends we've ever had — and the condescending overlords who use us for our can-opening skills. They inspire admiration for their ability to oscillate between fits of enthusiastic play — careening around the house after the red beam of a laser pointer — and their standoffish self-assuredness. Cats are not so much pets as complicated equals, and over the years they have inspired a few insights into our love, and confusion, about these regal, domestic companions.
