But is that them taking advantage of people, or the result of people manipulating their ancestors?

yes they do their features have evolved to becoming attractive so they will be taken care of

But that does not mean they are taking advantage of humans. This simply means that humans are more attracted to them and more likely to take them in and domesticate them. It is on point but doesn't really help much.

well I'm not sure if this is quite in point but they do have a huge advantage cause of all the attention and care we give them. other animals have to keep fighting for their survival and that of their species but I doubt cats would be too worried about natural selection. And cause we're carrying for them their survival as a species is virtually guaranteed. so yeah they do have serious advantages to being cute

Ah, this is interesting. But haven't they been forced to do so? Humans take advantage of animals, not the other way around. Is this incorrect?

I'm talking about how they've been domesticated. Cats, dogs, cows, pigs etc rely on humans for their food and shelter.

No they arent.

Considering the number of adorable puppies and kittens in shelters, I think if they are trying to take advantage of us it is not going well for them.
