a new study has found that cats fake sick when upset by changes in their environment.
the key is to lick your palms. it's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.
"when cats are upset about a change in their environment, they let you know by acting sick - refusing to eat and vomiting excessively, even if they're healthy... this translated to a 3.2-fold increase in the risk for sickness behaviors by all cats when their routines were disrupted."
well duh. any cat person can tell you that they're total drama queens.
