#44: It Would Be Disconcerting
Can you imagine being a time-traveling wolf and coming to 2022 to see a chihuahua walking down the road with pink toenails? That would be… somewhat devastating, right? I’m not sure how it happened, but as all canines are descendants of wolves, it’s still a fact that chihuahuas and poodles are as well.
There’s an actual scientific explanation for why cats haven’t evolved as much as their canine counterparts. Modern cats are extremely good at survival, just like their ancestors. Because they had no need to evolve to survive, they simply haven’t. Dogs, on the other hand, have come to rely heavily on humans for survival, and evolution (with a heavy dose of selective breeding) created fluffy cute pooches, so humans were more likely to care for them.
