People who "hate" cats try and live with one for one full week. ... We would probably (most definitely) lie and say that I hated cats just so we could have a cat for the week.

Can you guess what will happen when these humans spend a whole week with those adorable furry animals?

Love. Unexpected love. Which is always the best kind of love.

You can watch her (the chosen research subject) try to explain what she's experiencing, seeing to Dr. Sidney Cohen, who administered LSD to her at the Los Angeles Veterans Hospital.
