Cats choose human interaction over food

Despite popular belief that they are anti-social, cats chose human interaction over food after a period of time without either, according to research from Oregon State University. The study, reported in Behavioural Processes, involved 50 cats from homes and shelters, and after several hours without food, human contact, scent and toys, most cats chose human interaction when exposed to the four stimuli.
