My e-pal (a vet tech student) and I both love animals, though she tolerates cats instead of liking them. I told her about how my cats were licking each other and it's weird how people think they are so independent. My friend replied that they are solitary, it's just that because we plenty of food and resources so they had no need to be competitive for food, hence liking each other. She also said that the cat had only been domesticated for around 8,000 so the cat's true solitary nature was still there since the African Wildcat is solitary. I said that if food was that limited, I'd probably stop sharing and get territorial, too. So what is your take?
