Five Things That Matter When You Are Learning Cat-Human Relationships.
There are people that are very drawn to cats and their personality traits, just like there are some people that are more attracted to dogs, birds, or even more unusual pets. Regardless if you are a cat person or not, it is hard to not admire their stealthy way of getting around, their uncanny athletic ability as well as their beauty and grace.
The cat-human or human-cat relationship has been going on for literally centuries. Currently, domestic cats are the most popular pet around the world and they are found in almost any part of the globe that you visit. It is estimated by the United States Department of Agriculture that are over 100 million cats in the country, mostly in feral populations that live in small and large urban centers. A study in 2005 by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association reported that approximately 63 percent of all households own pets, with cats making up about 90 million pets in the survey, dogs coming in a distant second at 73 million total.
As more and more exotic cats are developed and selective breeding for specific characteristics, coat colors, and even temperaments are developed through breeding programs the trend towards cats as pets continues to increase. In addition, the smaller size of the cat and their ease of maintenance continues to make them a popular pet for both apartments and homes in both the city as well as in the country.
