Cat-lovers are easy to spot. In fact, there are some characteristics that cat-lovers have in common, and researchers from the University of Austin, Texas, have confirmed it. If you live with a cat, there is a very high chance that it will influence you with its habits, making you gradually pick up some of its behaviours. Let’s find out the identikit of the real cat-lover!
Cat-lovers tend to share many aspects of their character with cats:
1. LOVE OF SLEEP
Cats spend an average of 16 hours a day dozing off somewhere, almost 60% of their lives – not because they are lazy, it is simply a physiological need. However, living in close contact with a cat, it is almost inevitable to start appreciating the art of resting. If you prefer a quiet evening taking a nap on the couch with your kitty curled up on your belly to a party with friends… Well, you’re on your way to being a cat-lover!
According to the stereotype, cat-lovers are typically single, independent, self-reliant, do not want to be ordered around by others and tend to focus more on goals to be achieved. This is because the cat is the most independent and emancipated animal par excellence, able to stay on its own for several hours longer than a dog, and incredibly stubborn. Therefore, independence is also an inevitable feature of the cat-lovers mind.
Cat owners are more introverted than dog-lovers, more reflective, need their own space and time alone to restore balance and relaxation. Before trusting someone, they have to study the person for a long time… because trust is not easily gained! Doesn’t this sound exactly like a cat?
Cats remain mysterious animals with a remarkable sensitivity and intelligence. Despite their indifference, they are very empathetic, so they can understand every situation and every mood perfectly and if necessary they are willing to help. If you fall in love with a cat-lover, you’ve scored!
According to this research, if you’re a cat person, you’ll probably be an independent, creative and unconventional person who loves aesthetics and is particularly focused on goals. Do you recognise yourself in this description?
