I don't really understand the attraction of cats. They're vicious and selfish predators and almost impossible to train out of this kind of thing.

Pretty much answered your own question there Wink | ;)

They're so damn arrogant, that they make you feel all warm inside when they decide to tolerate your presence. Until such time as they get so happy they dig their claws into your legs and launch themselves off of your bloodied thighs. What's not to love?

I hear Steve Jobs had the same effect on people.

There is a parasite that reproduces inside cats' stomachs (all sizes of cats - housecats to lions) and when it infects, say, a rat, it makes the rat enjoy the smell of feline urine instead of, as usual, running away from it, because the parasite "wants" to get back inside a cat's stomach (via consumption of said rat). There is a hypothosis that the same parasite can infect humans, causing an irrational desire to be around cats. Lots of cats. Thus, cat people.

Look at me still talking when there's science to do
When I look out there it makes me glad I'm not you
