Everyone at some point in life has had a pet, whatever it is. Animals are an important part of families and can often serve as a guide for people with disabilities. In addition, they can be therapeutic: Some dogs and felines are taken to hospitals to help reduce the stress of patients. Even, they are very good to help in the classroom. Dogs can help the little ones develop better care.

A study conducted at the University of Vienna and published in the journal Behavioural Processes reveals that the bond between a woman and a cat is very special because they interact and sometimes understand them. To perform this analysis, 41 cats were recorded with their owners between men and women. The data collected in the report show that there is a close connection between felines and women. Both express their needs for affection and affection and the other understood these signs. Even young and outgoing women turned out to have better communication with their pets.

On the other hand, the findings indicate that cats correspond to the needs of their owners, as long as there is reciprocity between them. The report reflects that felines have good relations with both men and women. However, women tend to interact more frequently with cats.

Camila Cerdena, a great Italian writer says that "It is the cat, like the woman, who chooses the person, and not the other way around." Felines seek affection when they want, they are independent, clean, and lonely. In addition, they are very tender, but they can be wild. That is why many people make constructive and destructive comparisons of the relationships between women and felines.
