Don’t lie. You would do anything to never part with your fluffy ball who, well, would not necessarily be on the same boat. It manipulates you constantly when in need of food, ignores you when you want to pet it, and bothers you while you sleep. And yet you never let a day pass without that cutie-pie on your lap.

This cat parent named Anlyin is lucky to have a mom who made it, quite literally, virtually possible. Every time Anlyin stays at her boyfriend’s place, the stream of furry updates starts coming in. From a rare rectangular cat sighting to the morning lump posture, there’s nothing that gets away from the purrnews feed. Where do we sign up for the cat updates?

We’d like to think that cats, just like humans and dogs, have separation anxiety. However, this research suggested that felines are much more independent companions than we thought. The researchers observed 20 cats who were placed in a foreign environment in three different scenarios: alone, with their owner, and with a stranger. Daniel Mills, professor of veterinary behavioral medicine at the University of Lincoln, concluded that “even if cats were more vocal when the owner rather than the stranger left them, we didn’t see any additional evidence” that suggests a secure attachment between a cat and its owner. Your furball’s longing stare could have been all in your head.
