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!
