We all know that cats are the cutest, most adorable pets on the planet. No one is denying that cold, hard fact anytime soon. The whole ‘crazy cat lady’ trope is that women are the ones that are obsessed with kitties. Well, that may not be the case. According to a new study, men like them just as much.

If you happen to be a cat owner, you will 100% get why people love these animals so very much. Throughout history, felines have been worshiped by virtually every civilization. From the Egyptians (who did literally worship them!) to people in the modern world who spend hours looking at pictures of them on the net, we’re all guilty of cat-loving.

Still, there’s one nasty little rumour that people love to throw about. Many people seem to be under the impression that having a cat as a pet is a solely feminine trait. After all, that’s where the whole ‘crazy cat lady’ idea comes from. But wait just a minute! Who says that men can’t love cats just as much as we do, eh? It just does not make any sense.

When you really think about it, there’s no real reason that men shouldn’t adore kitties as much as us women. They might say that a dog is a man’s best friend, but cats can be just as loyal, loving, and cuter than puppies. When you really think about it, there’s no reason that the saying shouldn’t be ‘cats are a man’s best friend’. Frankly, it has a smoother ring to it, if you ask us.

The results are in and, of course, cat ownership is on the up right now. But, rather surprisingly, it’s the men who are driving up the statistics. According to a study by the Pet Food Manufacturers’ Association, a whopping 17% of UK men now own a cat. You might not think that that percentage is all that high, but it’s rising at a fast rate.

In fact, just last year, the same survey found that a mere 13% of men had cats. What these new stats suggest is that, yes, more men than ever before are getting kitties as pets. Honestly, we could not be more excited about this news! The fact that more men are getting cats than ever is seriously exciting!
