From the results of the survey, Royal Canin has put together an infographic with some pretty interesting statistics. Did you know that there are more pet cats than there are pet dogs in the United States? I'm sure our cat friends can appreciate that statistic.
What I find interesting is that many cat owners choose their cat's food by how tasty it is. In actuality, a cat is more interested in the aroma and texture of their food. This does make sense now that I think about it. Kitty Kitty Meow Meow would never touch lunch meat no matter how much I offered it to her. I always found it strange, but I guess it just didn't smell good to her. Or maybe she wasn't a fan of the texture.
When it comes down to choosing a good cat food, many cat owners don't consider their cat's health according to the Royal Canin survey. A high percentage also don't consider other factors like a cat's age, weight, or breed.
Another interesting find on Royal Canin's survey is that a high percentage of cat owners are uninformed when it comes to their cat's lifestyle. Besides sleeping, cats really do have a lot of other important things to do. Take it from Honey Delite.
Play - Cats like to play and treat their toys as their "prey". Of course, there are those times when your cat catches live prey and decides to play with it... that's always fun! For the cat, anyways.
Mark Territory - Cats mark their territory by rubbing their heads up against things. They also use scratching with their claws to mark their territory.
Vocalize - Cats can make up to 100 different sounds! Which is actually way more than a dog can make.
Eat - This is a pretty important part of any cat's day. Cats eat many small meals throughout the day. They like to snack or graze.
Hide - Cats spend a large percentage of their day hiding. I guess hiding is best if you want to get a nice nap in without any interruptions!
