What does your cat’s personality say about you?

Like humans, cats have distinct personalities that reflect their quirks and traits. From cuddle cats who love to curl up with you to cats filled with curiosity and a sense of adventure, each cat is different. How your cat behaves reveals more than just their personality. Your cat’s personality also reveals something about you.   

Research has shown a strong link between the personality traits of cats and their owners. If your cat has a particular quirk or personality trait, they likely got it from you. Cats also take on characteristics they picked up in their environment and the type of care they receive. For example, cats with owners who are free spirits and open to new experiences are often more curious, while cats that are more reserved or anxious around people have owners who are a little nervous or stressed.   

Have you ever wondered how much you and your cat have in common? Here is what these common cat personalities say about their owners.
