Pets are obviously a big part of our families but if you own a cat than you know the love/hate (but mostly love) relationship you have with each other.

Cats are little buttheads and think they rule the house but they also love you unconditionally. Their sassy personalities are too cute to resist.

PR Newswire reported on a study [on cat litter] done by Arm & Hammer found that 97% of people say their cats have a positive impact on their lives. While 9 in 10 consider them one of their children.

Some other findings include:

  • 25% would rather cuddle with their cat than their significant other.
  • 59% of cat owners have given their cat a nickname.
  • 90% of people talk to their cats and majority answer their cat's meows.
  • 50% of people buy their cats presents and dress them up for the holidays.

Most people also said that their idea of relaxation is at home... with their cat.

86% of male and female cat owners find it more relaxing to be at home with their cat than to go for a run or to the gym."

We;re crazy cat people for a reason!

But I do know that all pet owners probably feel the same way, no matter what kind of animal they have.
