7 Reasons Why Cat People are Awesome

Studies show that cat owners have different personality traits compared to those of other pet owners, specifically their rival dog owners. It may be true that people mostly associate themselves to their chosen pets to love, adore, and care for, but what really makes cat people awesome? Here are 7 reasons.

7 Reasons Why Cat People are Awesome

1.) Cat people make their living space a home.

Unlike dog owners who spend lots of time walking their dog and taking them to parks, cat owners tend to stay at home more to spend time with their furry friends. When you spend more time at home, you make sure that your living space is as a cozy as a warm blanket, so you make an effort to make your space more livable and comfortable. You will definitely not see a cat owner’s home looking like a frat house. Ever.

2.) Cat people are smarter, apparently.

I’m not making this up. According to research, cat owners are more intelligent than their dog owner counterparts. Why? Home time means staying in – usually curled up with a book. Also, in a personality experiment conducted in the US, participants who described themselves as “cat people” scored higher in the intelligence department than “dog people”.

3.) Cat people are more unconventional and open-minded.

Cats are quirky animals and if you love that quirkiness, that probably means that you are a bit quirky yourself. You don’t agree with me? According to Sam Gosling, a psychologist at the University of Texas, cat people are 11% more open-minded than dog people. Generally speaking, open-minded people have more unconventional beliefs, unusual ideas, and are more imaginative.

4.) Cat people are emotionally and mentally healthy.

I can’t say that cat people are the only ones who are emotionally and mentally healthy. These are basic characteristics for most pet owners since having a furry friend, whether it’s a feline or canine, helps with a person’s emotional and mental well-being. In fact, non-pet owners experience more feelings of loneliness and stress in comparison to pet owners. Relationships with pets also provide unconditional love and affection and encourages playfulness and laughter, making the pet owner live better and longer overall.

5.)  Cat people are curious.

Just like their favorite furry friends, cat people tend to me more curious than others. It has been said that curiosity is an important trait of a genius because curiosity makes them search for answers and keeps their minds active. Let’s put it this way: the brain is like a muscle and you need mental exercises to keep it strong. Curiosity helps in doing so.

6.) Cat people are independent.

One of the reasons why cat people are more drawn to felines is because of their independence. Cats are easier pets to take care of because you don’t need to dote over them to make them happy. Cat owners usually see themselves as independent just like their kitties.
