Are We All Big, Dumb Kittens?

I found this interesting article discussing how dogs perceive us versus how cats see us here.

I was thinking about this idea of how cats seem to view us as other cats and it brings up the major question of why? One explanation could be  how we found functional purposes for dogs (such as hunting) but not so much for cats which could have changed the way we act toward cats versus how we act toward dogs.  The other thing I wonder is if this is true for the bigger "wild" cats (since, as professor pointed out in class, domestic cats and wild cats have the same genetic makeup).
