    you were right, not hard to find. i should probably watch it when i'm not at work, though.

    i've been reading temple grandin's books on animal behavior and she has some interesting thoughts on how we relate to animals and the cats vs. dogs things. namely, that we evolved in a symbiotic relationship with dogs versus a mutually beneficial one with cats, and therefore cats exhibit more wild-type behavior than dogs do. in application, this means that dogs protected us and helped us hunt and in return they got safe places to live, food kickbacks, and the promotion of their genes. cats, on the other hand, liked us because we provided available food sources (in other words, rats like human establishments and cats like rats) and we liked them because they ate the rodents, so we were okay with them hanging around and they liked to hang around but we never worked together or made any effort to breed them for a specific task. when you look at wolves (what dogs came from) vs. wild cats in africa (what your domestic house cat comes from), cats are a lot more similar to their ancestors than dogs are although both species exhibit neoteny (adults acting like/having the maturity of juveniles, such as adult dogs with separation anxiety with their owners whereas wolves grow out of that with respect to their families around 2 years of age).

    it also gave me some useful tips on how to train my cat to do things, like walk on a leash. crazy cat ladies unite!

    ^ah if only it was the whole show.

    I originally sat down for an interview for the show and I had to pretend I really hated dogs and speak all sorts of negativeness. It was funny though it's too bad the interviews never made the cut.

    probably! powderhouse productions is in somerville. Elliott's bandmate is one of their producers and it's how I keep ending up looking like a lunatic on camera.

    her books, she has two that i know of relating to animal behavior, i have both and you're welcome to borrow them. animals in translation is her first, animals make us human is the follow-up. she's autistic and is of the opinion that the way her thought process works is similar to the way animals think (to paraphrase her view into a very basic principle: impaired frontal lobe function in autistics is like smaller frontal lobes in animals - frontal lobes are the part of the brain that makes associations and summarizes things for us, and people/animals whose brains aren't constantly picking and choosing what gets allowed into our conscious mind and what doesn't, and instead are constantly flooded with everything they encounter in the environment, are a lot more detail oriented, with significant impact on behavior as a result). she takes this perspective and applies it to livestock industry, pets, humans, and a variety of other applications and ideas. apparently she's revolutionized animal handling and made huge strides in slaughterhouses by developing new handling technology, imposing more effective audits, and working on management styles. i was turned off a little at first when i started animals in translation about all the cattle and livestock talk, but i think it's well worth reading both books if you're at all interested in animal behavior, handling, training, or autism.
