A cat’s brain is biologically more similar to a human brain that it is to a dog’s. Both humans and cats have identical regions in their brains that are responsible for emotions.
The Savannah is the largest domestic cat breed. It resembles a small leopard and behaves like a dog. They can grow up to 40 lbs, have an eight foot vertical jump, and can be trained to walk on a leash and play fetch.
Prisoners who are allowed to have cats in their cells not only display improved behavior in order to keep their pets, but can also experience a psychological reawakening because they have something in their lives to give them unconditional love.
