    I don't see cat color.

    My favorite cat breed, Bombay, is solid black. They are amazing. They love to play and they can catch and fetch better than any dog breed.



    All cats are IDGAF, but Bombays are actually patient with us and allow us to befriend them, sometimes, if we're not complete ape scum.

    It would absolutely not surprise me to find there is a statistically-significant relationship between dislike of cats and authoritarian personality.

      Edit: Well, OTOH, I'm very allergic to cats, so perhaps I don't dislike cats and I just have a pavlovian response to them.

        It's psychosomatic.

        Dr. Mrs. thought she was allergic just because she had to go to the hospital those few times. She got over it.

          I found this. There is apparently a statistically-significant difference in preference: right: dogs, left: cats. Obviously they are overlapping curves; it is not deterministic.

          I can imagine a conservative valuing the more servile animal to prop up his insecurity and fit into his rigidly hierarchical view of the world. But only as a thumb on the scale, as I'm sure the highest correlation is what you grew up with. I grew up with only cats, hence, cat person.

                      I also have a cat, and I'm thinking of getting a hamster to put his cage on my desk. In the meantime, cats can be quite mischievous at times, but their playful antics are just too cute to resist. Dogs, on the other hand, are incredibly loyal and make fantastic companions. Speaking of pet-related resources, I recently stumbled upon the PocketPets website, and it's been a game-changer for me. They've got a treasure trove of information and tips for all kinds of pets, from cats and dogs to birds and reptiles.

                        For those with an interest in cats - NetFlix has a 1 hour special called "Inside the Mind of a Cat"/ Fascinating as several cat psychiatrists (so - called) try to explain how cats behave. The last 20 minutes are certainly worth it as 2 Ukranian women show how they train their cats for shows and TV appearances.

                                My p-ssy wants to kill your mama.

                                My favorite TIL from this study: domestic house cats have had more species extinctions linked to them than any other species except man. Unlike most predators they have no feedback mechanism for deprecating targeting of more endangered species.

                                Oh, and also:

                                While the number of species our analysis documents as being eaten by cats is larger than ever previously described, all permutations of our species accumulation curves demonstrate no asymptote, indicating that additional studies are likely to continue to increase the tallies we report.
                                Again, like us.

                                We are gradually moving towards each other in the bracket.
