It is generally believed that dogs are nice and cats are mean. This is a stereotype that has plagued all cats and their reputation since time immemorial.

However, a new study proves that cats are actually quite nice.

A series of cognitive tests were used to determine the likes and dislikes of cats.

Four different categories were used to gauge their reactions: human company, food, scent, and toys.

It was found that cats actually preferred the company of humans over food!

In addition to that, most of the cats preferred the company of humans over pretty much anything else.

This proves that even though cats may seem cold and distant, they actually do care for you and love you.

So why is it that they have such a bad rap for being distant and aloof?

“This disconnect may be due, in part, to a lack of knowledge of what stimuli cats prefer, and thus may be most motivated to work for,” the study concluded.
