No-Brainer Department: It Seems that Cats Like Us More Than Food

I could have told you this.
For the study, felines went through a series of cognitive tests. Fifty different cats were used as subjects, some of which were pets, others from shelters. All of the kitties were deprived of food, toys and human contact for a few hours. After this separation, the cats were presented with human attention, food, scents and toys to see what they missed most. Almost all of the cats craved human attention, with half of the felines opting for chin scratches over any of the other stimuli, food included. Only 37% of the cats chose food first.
I think if a cat lets you scratch their chins they will be pretty attached to you. Cats do their own thing but I know that if they have a forever home they are very nice to people that don't endanger them for the most part. I mean they aren't super friendly like dogs but once you earned a cats love they become super loyal and loving pets. They need to do this same test with rattys.
