Some humans can wrap others around their fingers, while cats wrap themselves both literally and figuratively around their humans -- especially women.
Cats attach to humans, and particularly women, as social partners, and it's not just for the sake of obtaining food, according to a study published in the journal Behavioral Processes. Cats sometimes even become a furry "child" in nurturing homes, crying out in a similar pitch and tone as a human baby would cry.
Most owners know that if breakfast is late, the feline may make its presence known, usually in an affectionate way. Cats know what they want, and they often know how to get it too.
