Looks like your cat-loving friends have been right all along. Cats actually do like people.
Yep, according to a new study, cats are not anti-social. Instead, researchers say cats enjoy human interaction.
In the study, cats were presented with three things to react to within four categories: human social interaction, food, toy, and scent.
The cats preferred social interaction first, followed by food.
In other words, they preferred to be played with and petted more than they wanted anything else … which is surprising, isn't it? (Telegraph)
