OCD and CATZ!!!
« on: 18/09/2006 15:13:55 »
Cats lick themselves and go to the potty in a litterbox because they do not want you to waste money cleaning them, and they want to have nice clean fur so you can pet them, right?

That is not what the experts have to say.

They say that Cats do this as a survival technique, e.g., if a predator is on their trail, i.e., a dog with a super-smeller-nose, they can scently camouflage themselves.

Thus, when people have OCD and have to be clean obsessivly, is it because they have a problem with their survival instincts, as oposed to merely being eccentric like Bill Murry or Tony Shaloub or Nicolas Cage (What about Bob, Monk, Matchstick Men).

I just saw an episode of wife swap in which a super clean family traded places with a...pirate family.
