According to SWNS, OnePoll conducted a survey on behalf of Fresh Step litter to see how obsessed cat owners are with their pets. Not surprisingly, it turns out cat owners are fascinated by their felines.
The poll, which surveyed 1,000 cat owners, found that the average owner spends 1,016 hours with their kitty each year and takes around 7 photos of their cat a day.
But it turns out, cat owners don't stop at taking photos;
41% of those polled said they have a framed photo of their cat or another beloved feline in their home. Overall, 84% of cat owners polled said they see their feline as a family member, with some routinely buying gifts for their cats.
Based on the survey's results, these kitties earned their special status;
60% of the cat owners polled said their cats are loyal and 59% said their purr-fect pets snuggle right up to them, even though felines are often unfairly labeled as aloof.
Over three-quarters of the owners polled for this survey said they see talking to their cat as a form of therapy, one that has helped them get through tough times like a move to a new city, a new job or a personal loss. The love these owners feel from their felines makes the pets their preferred hang out buddies.66% those polled admitted they rather spend time snuggling with their cat over hanging out with their human friends.
