Is it a myth that a cat can sense its owner's mood?
In the year that I've owned my cats, I've gone through many extreme moods and illnesses. I've been mild to moderatly sick, depressed, bored, tired, happy, excited, etc. During all of these times, I haven't really noticed any change in my cats. The closest thing is when I yell at one cat to get his attention away from something. It doesn't really work on that cat, but my other cat meows and runs up to me.
Is it only some cats? Or just an urban legend? Anyone have some stories to share? I am certain at least that my cats cannot sense most of the negative emotions above.
