Dutch primate researcher Frans de Waal discusses the apes within us.

I am cat-sitting this week, and as a non-cat-person I have to ask the question that an exasperated Freud uttered many years ago, "What do kitties want?"

Dogs wear their hearts on their sleeves, you never have to wonder what they're thinking or what they need.

But my temp cat seems to always wear the same face, and when he does that paw-on-my-sleeping-forehead thing every couple of hours, I don't know if he wants food, attention, exercise, or he's just being perverse, since nothing seems to satisfy him for long.
