Now There's a Personality Test for Your Cat

Mar 18, 2016

Cat lovers can probably sense that their feline friends have distinct personalities. Now there's a test to help determine how to label different personality types. And early results show cats are much like us, according to a Washington Post report.

The owners of 2,800 cats in Australia and New Zealand took the personality test on behalf of their pets. Researchers used the results to identify five common personality traits: skittishness, outgoingness, dominance, spontaneity and friendliness.

The study was conducted by researchers at the University of South Australia.
