Dear Sir or Madam:

I must protest the invocation of the term "pavlovian" to describe the behavior in this video.

Pavlov studied classical conditioning, or the act of causing an involuntary response to an unrelated stimulus by pairing it with a more relevant stimulus; i.e., by ringing a bell when he served his dogs food, he got his dogs to salivate by simply ringing the bell.

What we are seeing here is actually operant conditioning, where food is rewarded for voluntary behavior. A better name to invoke here would be Skinner or perhaps Thorndike.

I patiently await a T-shirt for pointing out this error. 3XL, please.

Your dutiful reader,

The cat owner's drool is made of cat treats (he ate enough cat food for this to finally happen)

Also t-shirt has been sent via blimp.

T-shirt features information on iron maiden 'World Slavery' 1985 Tour. Error comments have been appended via sharpie.

My cat has figured out the best way to get fed is to bite me, hold on, grab with her front paws and dig in with the back in a swift, kicking motion.

Cats are assholes.
It's amazing how cats take on the traits of their owners, yes.

It's amazing how cat-sympathizers rationalize the asshole actions of cats.

I’m not a sympathizer, I have an emotionally abusive relationship with her.

I call her a piece of shit, she bites me.
