This Study Proves: Cats Are Less Stressed When They Have Access To Cardboard Boxes

There is now an official (and scientific!) reason why cats love boxes. Why cats and boxes are such a good mix has long been a mystery. Researchers from the University of Utrecht have discovered just why, publishing the results of their findings in the Journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science.

This is reason enough to post observations (collected by top scientists) of this cute cat phenomenon. Not that we needed a reason, but you know.

University of Utrecht researchers C. M. Vinke, L.M. Godijn and W. J. R. van der Leij each contributed to the study.

New Study Highlights The Differences Between Cat People And Dog People

Rover.com conducted a survey via PollFish in March 2019 to take a deeper look in the phenomenon of a pet's influence in the household. They polled 1,261 adult dog and cat owners in the United States. The study is known as "The Secret Lives of Cat People and Dog People" and the report investigates "how having a cat, a dog or both affects humans and the relationships we cultivate with our pets." The data revealed that cat people and dog people are more alike than different. So can we all live in peace now? Check out the results below. 

However this report has not answered one of the most crucial disputes on the subject in recent, and historical memory: Who's better: cats or dogs? Or neither? I'm still torn on the subject, but let us know in the comments, maybe some compromise can be found (dogs win). Regardless of the results, we can all agree that these fantastic felines make up some pretty hilarious cat memes, so continue your marathon of memes with some of the best cats around.
