Do you have a cat? If you do and you are like me, then you know your cat will always gravitate towards you and the affection you give as opposed to food and eating A new study out of Oregon State University shows that 50 cats were deprived of food, toys, and human companionship for several hours. When they were reintroduced to these forms of stimuli, the first choice for kitty was human affection, which debunks the previous idea that cats were anti-social. Food came in second. I find, that only certain pure breeds are anti-social. I will take a Heinz 57 kitty any day. They are more loving and they live longer. My oldest lived 21 years.
