Facts: 25 Facts About Cats That Are Totally Unbelievable(Must See)

are often shaded in a bad light for hating humans but a new study says
they actually likes people more than we think. In a research conducted

behaviour may simply be misunderstood.
The trio, Kristyn Vitale
Shreve, Lindsay Mehrkam and Monique Udell who conducted the experiment

Evidence that Cats Likes their owners

order to assess the degree to which cats like (or are stimulated by)
certain things, the researchers tested reactions from two groups of 19
cats each—those living with people and those living in a shelter. The
pets were kept separated for two and a half hours and were then watched
as they were presented with three items from one of four category types:
food, scent, toy and human interaction.
researchers mixed up the stimuli for the different cats to get a better
read on which they found the most stimulating. The degree of preference
for any one stimulus was judged by which stimulus the cat went for
first and how and for how long it interacted with it.
found that overall social interaction with humans was the stimulus most
preferred. That is, half of the cats chose interacting with a human
above anything else offered, which included food—they spent on average
65% of their time interacting with a person.
