If you have a cat, you've probably asked yourself, "does my cat love me?" Love is a messy term. It's not all that accurate to the way we feel...that attachment. Does a baby love their parent? I would say yes. So I decided to put Bill and Loki's love to the test using one of psychology's most famous experiments!

Big thanks to Nick from Science Asylum and Dom from Every Think for giving me footage of them angrily typing even though I could’ve used it for malicious purposes. Check out both of their amazing channels!

The cats at the beginning were mostly from charitable Twitter and Reddit folks. Thanks y’all! I love it when a plan comes together. Here’s all the cats’ names (and social media name if applicable):
Ester - @AllEndlessKnot
Xenophon and Coralon
Sabrina Toftillo - @ARTexplains
Bandito - Bandito Cat on YT
...and other unnamed cats!

Neuroscience and Neurobiology are potentially the greatest areas of human study anyone can study in terms of pushing forward science and the advancement of humanity! I’d highly recommend the work of Robert sapolsky and his epic book behave which offers a candid path and broad view of humanity and the true reasons for the way people are not just dogma and superstition holding culture back and creating needless suffering as a result of this lack of knowledge and understanding I know this isn’t specific to this video but my point still stands and it is a neuroscience channel

A friend of mine adopted a dog when she had two cats. Her cats hated it and hissed and growled at it. Then it went blind and the cats would follow it around to make sure it didn't bump into walls and help the dog get to his food bowl..They knew there was something wrong with him before my friend did. That is my favorite cat story.

In the wild, cats use the buddy system when going to the bathroom. That's why cats prefer to be there when you're pooping. They're trying to watch your back and keep you safe from ambush predators while you do your business. They also want you to do the same for them. It's a matter of fear, loyalty, and pride.

I had a bad reaction to a prescription once, I was slipping in and out of consciousness but my buddy yowled and meowed and walked all over me, got next to my hear and cried and cried to keep me awake. He probably saved my life because my mom came to see what all the noise was about. When I came home, he nearly died of excitement and refused to leave my side until I got out of bed finally. He literally had to be fed on the floor next to my bed. Cats DO love deeply. EDIT: I forgot to mention that he was a stray when I found him and we let him go in and out at his leisure.

WeirdMegster Yıl önce
I love stories like this! So glad you had a little kitty watching over you! My cats also saved me when I developed sepsis from a bacterial infection. I was unresponsive, unbeknownst to my husband. He said the cats refused to leave my side even for to eat which he thought was odd but didn't do anything. Then one of the cats started scratching and yowling at him and kept trying to get him to come to me. Finally, he followed the cat and checked on me to find me unconscious, struggling to breathe and cyanotic. If my cats hadn't been there my husband would have let me go the entire night until morning before he would have checked on me. Obviously, by then I would have died. Thanks to my cats it was caught in time and I was hospitalized only for a few days and came home with a picc line for just 2 weeks. Not too bad for nearly dying. I love animals!!!!

Cats DO experience the "admiration" aspects of love. I frequently catch my cat sitting still and looking at me with unabashed admiration. It's the same look that we have on our faces when we sit quietly and look at our cats admiringly. It's the sweetest experience to see your cat looking at you with that kind of admiring love.

I had a cat named Black many years ago. I was sick in bed with the flu and couldn’t even get up to get myself something to drink. My cousin came to visit and was sitting in a chair at the foot my bed and bitching about her life, when I indicated that I wanted something to drink she just kept on bitching, my cat Black jumped into her lap and dug his claws into her. I almost laughed when she jumped up screaming.

I don’t think cats are “cold,” they just show their affection in different ways than dogs. And many people don’t understand there’s more than one way to love. Just because it’s not as loud doesn’t mean it’s not as deep.

@Thuấn Đỗ Thats true. But domestication plays a big role. Experiments have shown that dogs are even more submissive than wolves. We selected dogs for certain characteristics and purposses over of thousands of years. Also afaik, tigers live usually on their own while lions are very social.

I had a hard childhood and everytime I would curl up and cry my cat Michael would come and comfort me. He showed visible concern for me and would push his body up against me. Cats teach us that love is not always loud but it's there for you when you need it.

Same. I've had dogs and cats all my life, and while I know my dogs loved me and I loved them I have never had a stronger connection than me and my cats. If I fell down, the dogs would run away and the cats would run up to me and make sure I was okay. If I was sad, cats were there. Sick? Cats. Plus the cats didn't try to stealy food and tear up my toys all the time, lol. I love dogs, but cats and I show love in the same quiet way so we get along much better.

My cat Maxine always sat on my mom's lap and it made me kinda jealous lol, (I never forced her or held her or picked her up against her wishes though, I always let her have the choice.) I have ADHD and anxiety so I was a really wiggly not sit still kind of kid... She taught me to sit still and just relax. After many attempts as soon as one paw touched my thigh I held still let her get comfy on my lap then just pet her while watching tv as she kneaded my knees. After a while she stopped going to my mom and attached herself to me, probably cause I spoiled her rotten... She really helped me through a lot, if I was sad she would yowl at my door till I let her in my room and just lay with me until I felt better. I miss her everyday. I just can't ever forget her, she was one of a kind. It's really special when a cat chooses to lay on you.

Additionally, being in an overcrowded space growing up means he likely wasn't given enough attention to feel loved. so now that he has that, he's terrified of losing it again. he compares it to his past living situation. Bby really appreciates what he has.

I’ve had panic attacks around my cat twice, and both times I would curl up on the floor and my cat would come and sit next to my head and meow at me.

I've had 5 cats, two of whom were incredible. The first was "White Kitty," who was a white cat who showed up one day on my front porch and said, "Congratulations, I'm your new cat." He was possibly the best cat anyone has ever had. He walked to heel outside and was a perfect companion. Sadly, he died at only 7 years. The second was Thea, who bopped me in the head in the shelter to tell me she was my new cat. The other cats were great in their own ways, but weren't necessarily as special.

This is quite fascinating. When my cat & I moved here three years ago, I had to leave him alone in the bathroom in the last place for about an hour while the movers moved stuff out. My mom was there the whole time & said that he cried a bit, but not constantly until he heard my voice upon my return. Then he cried even more until I let him out. He came right to me for some lovin's before sniffing around our empty place, returning to me every so often, ping ponging like you described. When we got to here finally, I let him out of the carrier & he explored freely, coming back to me often. We have a very strong bond & thid has been shown in many ways over & over. My cat has a secure attachmemt, whih makes me happy because I know that he's happy. 😊😻

I rescued a cat and actually had her for 17 years. I began experiencing depression in college and when I was in the middle of it, she would seek me out and sit in my lap. She was never a lap cat but somehow she picked up on my depression and would sit with me as I went through it. So I will always believe they care in their own way.

Had a similar experience with both the cats and the dog. Usually they'd run up and jump all over me but when I was depressed the cats would be very quiet and come sit on my lap. The dog instead of wildly wagging her tail and almost knocking me over with enthusiasm would also be quiet sit next to me and give me sad look, then I'd pet her and she leaned up against me and staid quiet. Until they cheered me up and it was back to normal. That's when I truly knew these creatures have something deeper than just instinct going on in their heads. It might not be human type intelligence but they certainly feel emotion and have empathy. Cross species empathy which I find remarkable. Also the cat would yawn if the dog yawned or a person yawned until everybody in the room got it. That's another sign of empathy. Mirror neurons at work.

@Selma Jåsund Kvinnesland one of my current two cats (*not* the one in my profile pic) prepared a sight to behold in the morning, of a mouse ripped apart in the middle. It made it a bit harder to love them, but it's their instincts so they probably can't really help it. Nature will be nature, even when it's living in your home.

I would love to try this experiment with my two cats. I reckon I already know what the results will be. One is a semi-socialised feral (she'd be disorganised) and the other is a kinda shy but calm lil dude (he'd be secure).

In general, it has been my observation that the only people who do not like cats are people who have never really spent time with them.

@fumes des péterds this is true, but it’s not the cats fault. It’s the fault of the people who abandoned them or let them outside. An indoor cat is not the cause of the extinction of any animals. Also, I don’t think that’s the reason why anyone really dislikes cats. It’s just an excuse.

I had a teacher who was terrified of cats and thought they all wanted to hurt her. She was not afraid of dogs. I couldn't get a reason why.

I leave my carriers out w the doors open. Both cats will use them as hidey sleepy holes. And yes when I need to take them the vet, and they are feeling a little stressed all they want to do is go back inside the carrier, its a safe place!!! It has made getting them into the carriers in the 1st place a whole lot easier. Wish I had done it when I was younger w other cats!!!

It’s amazing how much my cat warmed up to me. He was 8 months when I adopted him.It hid for one month until finally coming out of his shell. Now he is extremely vocal and communicative. He learns through observation, I love gaining his trust and working for our relationship. Cats are delightful companions

This was great! So interesting. I wonder though if you would see a difference in attachment if there were multiple caregivers. Could the cat have a different response to the each caregiver? Might have to test this one myself.

I had a cat that would run up to greet me every day after I got home from school. We had a perfectly timed routine. I would get off the bus and she’d run up to our front stoop. I’d sit down and pet her as long as I could before I got called inside. Middle school was extremely rough for me, and coming home to her everyday soothed my soul. She was the sweetest cat and a huge part of my life.

I think two of my cats are anxious and one is secure. Haven't done the experiment, but I'm pretty confident that two of them would be suddenly desperate for constant affection and reassurance. They were both abandoned by their actual mother, so it makes sense. She was still around, she just abruptly wanted nothing to do with them even before they were totally weaned.

Wasabi's attachment style is secure, and I'd have to say my attachment style with my mother is also secure. Wasabi, when I get home from work, she's always there to greet me and will want attention and comfort after me not being there for a while, but will happily go back to doing what she likes.

Interesting, any chance of removing the pet carrier as well whenever you leave to see their reactions? I find it interesting that they both stick close to the carrier as though they seem to know that the carrier is their gateway in and out of the room and their owner just left both alone.
I gave fake personality tests, and people believed it.
