September is Happy Healthy Cat Month—and there's never been a better time to show our cats some extra love. Recently, the cat lovers at Meow Mix ran the Purrfect Together Survey, which asked cat parents around the country about their special bond with their four-legged friends. Here are some of the meow-nificent results:
83% of cats take naps with their humans
This is surprising—and not because 83% of people love napping with kitty. The bigger question is: Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don't get to experience the joy of napping with their cats?
80% of cat parents believe they can interpret their kitty's meows
While humans and cats may purr in different languages, that doesn't stop most cat mommies and daddies from understanding what their kitty wants—whether it be some treats, cat nip, or just a snuggle partner.
72% of cat parents love to surprise their kitties with treats
Speaking of treats, nothing makes a cat happier than some spontaneous, unexpected goodies from the person who cares for them the most.
55% of cats love chicken-flavored nibbles
Exciting news: Meow Mix has just released a brand new culinary-inspired food made with real chicken or salmon, Bistro Recipes—a classy meal for a classy kitty, just like yours!
Head over Meow Mix's new Purrfect Together web portal right meow,
and you can download a coupon for $2.50 off any bag of Meow Mix Bistro Recipes! How great is that?
And that's not all! You need a classy painting to go with that classy meal. On the Purrfect Together portal, you can enjoy the unique experience of converting a photo of you and your cat into a Meowsterpiece—a digital "oil" painting that helps express and immortalize your cat-love on canvas. We did, as you can see above- I couldn't resist going for the antique pencil black and white look in a round frame! It looks formal, yet modern, right? You should try it out too!
Our little furbull has come a LONG way from the day when she was a feral kitten, hanging out with the dog in the yard, and refusing to come near humans! We eventually won her over, and now? She likes to take runs outside the house on occasion, but she likes her ac, steady food bowl and toy stash! In fact her and the aforementioned dog have been having issues 'sharing' the toys, and food dishes, since the dog came back inside full time! It's funny how the dog would let her eat all she wanted and never complained, and now the cat is territorial over her dish! Course it could be because she likes to keep her Meow Mix all to herself! the dog just thinks it's a great snack, LOL
It's funny how a little bundle of fur can get so attached to humans after a rocky start! She's almost as bad as the dog, waiting on the back of the sofa, to watch to see when the car pulls into the drive, sitting on the steps going upstairs when she can hear us moving around, knowing when somebody just needs a cat version bear hug and when to complain about our being gone for too many days! But we wouldn't have it any other way! Dad swears shes learned to say "NO" and and "NOW" pretty clearly, when you ignore her too! She's even becoming a lap cuddler in her middle age! Course we still find her napping in some weird places (backpack, suitcase, etc), but I think that is more about finding quiet than anything else!
Now it's time to show me how special your human-cat bond is! Post your Meowsterpiece on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with the hashtag #PurrfectTogether.
