Concerning the mystery of volition and other problems of consciousness, one could do a lot worse then to peruse an old copy of my "Elemental Mind". Short answer: nobody knows.
Those ears are causing a gravity well in the matrix of spacetime, producing perturbations in the calculus of Newtonian physics. This is probably because as I've been told cats have a gland that constantly releases into their systems a substance which makes them perpetually stoned - you can see it in its eyes - so they're entheogenic animals that upset the premises of the Cartesian world view and the apple cart as well. And he thought they were just nature's robots.
