If you’re a fan of the “Alien” movies and stories, you know that aliens attack humans and then use the human bodies to host a new alien that grows inside the host until it bursts through the chest to get out. In the original “Alien” movie, Ripley even saved a cat named Jonesy from the Alien.

Now there are disturbing developments suggesting that aliens can not only infect humans, but can also infect cats. Of course given the way cats take over the world, it’s far more likely that cats will get the aliens to do their bidding and boss the aliens around just like humans.
