If you remember the early James Bond movies, the ultimate villain was a man named Blofeld, who would plot dastardly deeds while stroking a white cat cradled in his lap. That helped perpetuate the stereotype that men who liked cats were cold, ruthless, and despicable — much like a typical cat.
However, the reality is much different. In fact, research in Australia shows that “cat men” – those who own cats but not dogs – earn more than average and are more likely than other men to read books. In other words, if you meet a man who likes cats, chances are good he’s richer and more literate (and possibly more intelligent) than the average man.
So use cats as a gauge to determine if a man is worth getting to know. If a man likes cats, chances are good you’ll like that man.
