How did cats learn to be so manipulative?

does it. Argento
does it. Most cat owners have experienced their cat rubbing his or her body on their legs when they want something.
My question is, how did cats "learn" that this behavior would (hopefully) get us silly humans to give in to them? Is it some evolutionary behavior? It must have come from somewhere.
Of course, I'm assuming cats in general do this and my guys just aren't exceptionally weird.
