Today In Science We Already Knew: Cats Suck And Don’t Need Humans

Cats don't seem to attach to their owners the way dogs do Your cat doesn’t really need you, new study suggests. According to a new study published in PLOS One journal, cats show little to no separation anxiety when they’re away from their owners and if/when they decide to stick around their human, it’s because they really want to. Researchers studied the behavior of 20 cats after being placed in an unfamiliar location with their owner and with a stranger. The results suggest that our feline friends show little to no signs of distress when left alone in strange environments. “Although our cats were more vocal when the owner rather than the stranger left them with the other individual, we didn’t see any additional evidence to suggest that the bond between a cat and its owner is one of secure attachment,” researcher Daniel Mills, professor of Veterinary Behavioural Medicine at the University of Lincoln’s School of Life Sciences, told the Telegraph. Animal experts, however, say that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Cats don’t need humans to feel safe, and if they’re unhappy they have no qualms with walking out and not looking back. Therefore, when they feel comfortable enough to stay, they really mean it. The study, too, is small and highly interpretative. Cats display distress and emotion in a variety of different ways — so perhaps your cat is different.

Bonding. Thats the difference between Cats and Dogs. As we said earlier this week, Cats suck. They dont need affection and call me crazy but If i pay for an animal i kinda want it to show some affection thats real. Taking out the trash this morning i couldn’t leave the house for more than 20 feet before my buddy starting wondering where the fuck I went. Its okay buddy! Im gonna be back in 5 seconds! Not cats though. They just think they’re in charge and own shit. Taking dumps in boxes and shit not giving a fuck if you’re dead or alive. Cats are like cold bitches that are always annoying and selfish and just want what they want and then leave you. Just the worst. And again, it comes back to the cat people. Always so overly gross with affection for their “loving”cat always saying “isnt she precious!?!?!” No shes not and scientifically speaking she hates you. My dog, however, who looks cute and likes to huddle up to me and is playful and legit smiles at me and makes me feel like a better man when its thundering and he comes to me for security, thats love.
