CATS love any quirky and winsome humour associated with people, it has emerged.
Researchers found that many cats are obsessed by what they consider to be the comic aspects of human behaviour.
Most cats find routine Homo sapiens activity like putting on a hat or lying on a bed to be revealing of some hilarious, imaginary aspect of our character.
Cat Nikki Hollis said: Everything you do delights me to an insane extent.
“Ive got hundreds of porcelain figures of humans doing all those loveable things humans do, like driving a car, or sitting at a desk using a computer in an adorable little shirt and tie.
Ive also got loads of human cuddly toys. My favourite is one of a person dressed as a policeman. I mean, who thinks of this stuff?
The best thing is when a human asks for some food in a grammatically inaccurate manner.”
She added: Im not sure where the urge to obsessively collect things to do with people comes from, but Im single, live alone, and dont have any kittens.
Cat Denys Finch Hatton said: Our amusement at the eccentricities of human behaviour may be a way of switching off from our primal and sadistic natures which are obsessed by sex, killing and torture.
“Or maybe we’re just bored with our empty consumerist lives.”
