Do You Love Cats? The Seven Characters That's You Should Known


If you ask the owner of any cat to describe it, he will tell you lovingly: She is my tormentor. Behind those round eyes is a capricious nature, however, not all cats may be alike , some of them do not hesitate to show their love and affection simply and without any games.

A new study by the University of Helsinki has found that each cat's personality and behavior can be determined using a combination of just 7 traits, which is an addition to the previous five : neuroticism, extraversion, dominance, impulsiveness and approval.

But before you get defensive about your cat's complex personality, this psychological division helps make your life happier in its surroundings.

The most common behavioral challenges associated with cats are being aggressive and urinating or defecating in the home despite being trained to go to the designated place.

The research was conducted via a survey of 138 questions, posted on Finnish animal welfare website Petsofi, and filled in by cat owners. The number of cats reached 4300, while the number of their species reached 26.

The reason for conducting the questionnaire - not direct observation - is that cats behave quite differently in a laboratory environment versus their behavior at home, so observing them in a research experiment may lead to inaccurate results.

The questionnaire asked subjects to enter their cat's sex, age, breed, color, and main activity.

They were also asked to fill out the questionnaire a second time after a period of time to measure the accuracy of the reports by comparing the two questionnaires.

 The researchers concluded 5 personality traits and 2 behavioral traits:


*the fear.

*hostility against humans.

*Sociability towards humans.

*Sociability towards cats.

Problems disposing of their waste within the designated space (eg refusal to use the bin or poor use of it).

Excessive cleaning of her body.

It was not surprising that some breeds of cats tend to have different personality traits, as genetics plays a big role.


The doctor said veterinarian Hans , a University of Helsinki: "The strain is the most terrifying blue Russian or Russian Blue, while the strain or Abyssinian Abyssinian are the least fear," according to the website published Science Alert .

He added, "The Bengal type was the most active, while the Persian and Exotic breeds were the most passive. The breeds that showed the most excessive cleaning were Siamese and Balinese, while the Turkish Van scored the highest scores in terms of aggression towards humans and the least in contact with other cats."

So if you have your cat's behavioral problems or own more than one cat but not all of them necessarily agree, understanding each other's personality helps to understand why they are behaving.

Then you can make a plan and make changes to the house or provide your cat with something that it is lacking, such as providing toys that challenge its instinct and its need to interact and play, or simply provide a place to hide for the less social species.

Cat Breeds

There are currently between 40 and 70 different breeds of cats, although that number depends on who is answering this question.

Breeds that love adventure and action:

And the more a cat is raised in the early stages of its life among humans, the kinder it will be with its owners and accepting of children and even other animals, and again there is no one rule for all cats.

And no matter how diverse the cat's breeds or personalities, they are united by one trait: curiosity and a love of exploration!
