Cats prefer women, according to science

Researchers from Loránd Eötvös University in Budapest (Hungary) looked into the subject in 2018, calling on 157 cat owners, both men and women.

The latter answered a questionnaire on the behavior, abilities and social interactions of their pet.

From this information, the scientists concluded that, in general, cats preferred women quite simply because the latter have more likely to interact with them ».

L’ study conducted by Hungarian researchers thus demonstrates that women speak and smile much more to their cats than men.

On the other hand, the softness of female voices would also play an important role in this preference, as well as tactility, which is much less present in men.
