LETTING THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG ABOUT CATS

Cats are often thought of as being much less personable than dogs. And while they do tend to be more independent than their canine counterparts, a new study says there’s much more to a cat’s personality than we’ve been giving them credit for. Researchers at the University of Helsinki say they’ve identified 7 distinct personality and behavioral traits which cats display regularly. Using a comprehensive survey of cat owners, the team examined the behavior of over 4,300 cats across 26 different breeds. So, what are the 7 cat personality traits?
• Activity/playfulness
• Fearfulness
• Aggression towards humans
• Sociability towards humans
• Sociability towards cats
• Litterbox issues
• Excessive grooming
The researchers point out that cat owners should expect those personalities to differ depending on the breed they bring into their homes.
