October is National Pet Wellness Month and National Black Cat Awareness Month—and there's never been a better time to show our cats some extra love. If you have been following me on Instagram, you may have seen my many pictures of our polydactyl cat, Hemingway who, of course, doesn't mind a cuddle or two.
Recently, the cat lovers at Meow Mix ran the Purrfect Together Survey, which asked cat parents around the country about their special bond with their four-legged friends. After reading their results I found that these finding are very accurate... especially #2! Here are some of the meow-nificent results (puns intended):
83% of cats take naps with their humans
This is surprising—and not because 83% of people love napping with kitty. The bigger question is: Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don't get to experience the joy of napping with their cats?
80% of cat parents believe they can interpret their kitty's meows
While humans and cats may purr in different languages, that doesn't stop most cat mommies and daddies from understanding what their kitty wants—whether it be some treats, cat nip, or just a snuggle partner.
72% of cat parents love to surprise their kitties with treats
Speaking of treats, nothing makes a cat happier than some spontaneous, unexpected goodies from the person who cares for them the most.
55% of cats love chicken-flavored nibbles
Exciting news: Meow Mix has just released a brand new culinary-inspired food made with real chicken or salmon (Hemingway's favorite), Bistro Recipes—a classy meal for a classy kitty! Head over Meow Mix's new Purrfect Together web portal [http://bit.ly/2dHAxuu] right meow to learn more about this dry cat food with a foodie flair.
And that's not all! You need a classy painting to go with that classy meal. On the Purrfect Together portal, you can enjoy the unique experience of converting a photo of you and your cat into a Meowsterpiece—a digital "oil" painting that helps express and immortalize your cat-love on canvas. Hemingway and I did it, and you should too! I mean how fun is that?!
Once you create your Meowsterpiece we want to see how special your human-cat bond is! Post your Meowsterpiece on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #PurrfectTogether. Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below.
