       There are more ways a cat marks territory than just scratching
trees (couches, desks, curtains).  Of course they would be impractical in
any advanced civilization.  Are fences and national borders any less a way

Made me wonder if the "face rubbing" that cats use as one way to
mark territory/possessions would have evolved into a form of
greeting or display of affection. Obviously another way in which
male cats mark territory would probably be verboten :)
