Everyone knows that cats are solitary creatures, especially when compared to dogs. While dogs enjoy congregating in packs, cats are more aloof. Now the latest study indicates that cats even see other cats as outsiders.
Researchers found that oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle hormone,” forges social bonds. However cats with high levels of oxytocin shared the least among other cats. That indicates that cats see other felines as something they can ignore. If it’s any consolation, that means your cat probably likes you better than it likes the other cats in your household.
