Cats Prefer Human Contact to Food
A study published in March 2017 found cats preferred what stimulus more than food?
Turns out our cats don’t hate us after all.
A study published in “Behavioural Processes” detailed a free operant preference assessment that determined whether domestic cats liked food, social interaction, toys or scent stimuli more.
Much to the surprise of some cat owners, human social interaction was the most preferred stimulus.
Food took the No. 2 spot. So the next time Princess Fluffy or Catrick Stewart claws your hand to shreds, know the pain comes from a place of love.
