Cats make wonderful companions. That’s why the latest survey isn’t surprising that says one in four cat owners treat their pets like a child. Hopefully that means saving up a college fund to put their cat through school, or leaving your cat with a large inheritance.

The same survey also found that 52% of cat owners treat their cats like members of their own family. Hopefully that means they treat their cat well since many people treat their family members with contempt, which is a behavior reserved solely for the way cats treat humans.
