The title “Pavlov’s Cat” comes from an Eddie Izzard routine in which he ponders what would have happened if Pavlov had done his famous experiments with cats instead of dogs.

Day One: Rang bell, cat fucked off.
Day Two: Rang bell, cat went and answered door.
Day Three: Rang bell, cat said he had eaten earlier, cheeky bugger.
Day Four: Went to ring bell, but cat had stolen batteries.
Final Day, Day Five: Went and rang bell with new batteries, but cat put his paw on bell so it only made a thunk noise.  Then cat rang his own bell.  I ate food.

The movie, TV and music executives of this world would love nothing more than to condition us pop culture geeks to be like Pavlov’s dog… unfortunately for them, we have a lot more in common with Pavlov’s cat.  :)
