Bonding with a Cat
There have been numerous studies and cases accomplished in order to understand and learn what exactly goes on between a human and a cat as they bond. After 120 hours and observing 40 cats, pairing humans with this furry animal, researchers have realized that it is just like any other human relationship. Today from Review Tales, I wish to discuss this matter and hope that you enjoy reading it.
“It seems that an important area of negotiation between the owner and the cat is mutual attention and friendly tactile interactions.” Scientists say. Although the findings do not indicate enough cases in order to determine if this applied to more female and cat owners or Male and cat owners, I believe it was nice that they found the concept something worth studying at all.
Having said this, a story published by Discovery News, indicated that: “cats approach female owners more frequently, and initiate contact more frequently (such as jumping on laps) than they do with male owners.” The co-author Manuela Wedl of the University of Vienna told Discovery News, that “female owners have more intense relationships with their cats than do male owners.”
Finally, Researchers analyzed DNA from 209 ancient cats as old as 9,000 years from Europe, Africa and Asia, including some ancient Egyptian cat mummies. Identifying that people had cats with them. This strengthens the idea that the love and relationship humans have had with cats goes back for a very long time.
