Your Cat Does Want Your Attention- Your cat wants your attention more than it wants to eat.
We found this interesting with our Pet Expo coming this weekend to Delta Plex. A new study by Oregon State University debunks the notion that cats are antisocial. Of course cat lovers already knew this. Here’s how the research worked; the testers deprived 50 cats of food, attention, toys and scent for several hours.
When the cats were reintroduced to these four stimuli and given a choice of which to have first, their top choice was human affection. Food came in second. They like us! They really like us!
As with humans, it was noted the life experience seemed to play a part in the behavior of the kitties.
