Fun Facts About Cats and their People, plus a Giveaway From Arm&Hammer!

Calling all cat people!  This post is for you.

Last week marked International  Cat  Day, and now we can celebrate here on the blog with a giveaway that I know cat owners are going to want to get in on.  But, first....let's talk cats. 

I often share my little kitty,  Purrcilla's picture on Instagram.  She is a complete sweetie who has stolen the hearts of our entire family.  I've shared a little of her story and how she came to live with our family previously on the blog.  In a nutshell, she found us, she was sick with an infection due to having a broken leg.  In her first six months with us, her life often hung in the balance.  We always say that a warm home, good food and lots of love and care saw her through and made her fight for her life. 

Cat Fun Facts

Below we are going to share some fun, cat facts, as found in a survey by Church & Dwight Co, the maker of ARM & HAMMER, sampling adult cat owners in the US. 

  • 79% of people say they treat their cat like a human
  • 74% of people feel that their cat is friendlier than humans
  • 95% of people feel that their cat lightens their mood
  • 35% of people prefer to cuddle with their cat, instead of their significant other
  • 39% of people say that their significant other complains about changing cat litter
  • 75% of people say that cat litter is a major issue and wish it weighed less
Where do you fit in with these findings? 

New Arm & Hammer Clump and Seal Lightweight Cat Litter

I do love my sweet kitty dearly, but admit that tending to the cat litter is a daily chore that I rather not have.  But, the reality of having a house cat as a pet is the litter. 

I have to admit that cat litter is a bit of an issue for me.  It's hard for me to purchase and it's hard for me to tend to.  Having a back issue, I can honestly say it's a pain!  However, I am the main caregiver of our cat and sometimes there just isn't any other options. 

Arm & Hammer Clump and Seal Lightweight Cat Litter has come to my rescue. 

It's 50% lighter than their regular kitty litter, the box contains the same amount, yet it is lighter to lift due to revolutionary low-density micro-particles. This litter is 100% dust free, which makes it so nice to pour and bend over while scooping.  And, this litter provides a seven day guarantee!   Our litter pan is behind our kitchen door.  We placed it there when we first got her, for her ease with the broken leg, and I've yet to be successful in moving it.  So, a seven day odor control guarantee is a big deal to me.

Aw your cat is so cute and what a great name. Purrcilla.
The stat about people prefering to cuddle with their cat rather than their significant other made me laugh. One of the reasons we got our cat is so my hubby doesn't have to cuddle with me. Or so he thought haha.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

I think the stats sound about right, our two are definitely treated like humans. (Judy Cowan)

75% of people say that cat litter is a major issue and wish it weighed less , This one really hits home with me , hate changing the litter.

The stats sound about right, though they are quite general. For example, I treat my cats like a human in some ways but not in many other ways; sometimes my cats improve my mood but other times I find them a bit annoying.

Mel said...

The stats sound right! I know I definitely talk to my cat as if he were a human!

Wendy Hutton said...

Your stats sound right most people who do have cats love them like their kids and always want the best for them and they are great company to have

Flo said...

Sounds good. I know cats sure lightens my mom's day when the cats come to visit.

Sarah Jackson said...

I have to say im one of the ones that would like lighter cat litter , I buy a huge box and its so hard to deal with when im changing the litter .

Rebby said...

I 100% treat my cat like a human and I believe SHE believes she is a human! Your stats are pretty accurate ;)

ivy pluchinsky said...

I can totally relate to the 75% of people say that cat litter is a major issue and wish it weighed less. It really is heavy!

skultechM0M said...

Cat people are a really unique breed and I am not surprise at all with the stats.

Jonnie (JB) said...

I agree with all the stats accept the two about significant others. Mine never complains about the cat and I like to cuddle them both equally!

Lori Butler said...

we treat ours as people.

jemrah said...

95% of people feel that their cat lightens their mood is my fav comment; I believe having a pet is a great stress reliever, and leads to happier lives!

409cope said...

I totally agree with the stats as our cat and our three dogs are treated like humans as they are our babies.

Tara Betterley said...

I think the stats are dead on - specially the first couple of them. I do believe we treat our cats like human and that we do find that they can lighten our moods (when sad you can always cuddle and them you happier)..

lynnsbeans said...

i agree my animals are people in fur coats

Andrea Amy said...

The stats seem pretty realistic. My son changes the litter, so that isn't an issue, but the rest seems right to me!

Amy Heffernan said...

I like the 74% of people feel that their cat is friendlier than humans!! I think this is so true!

Lee Art said...

I agree with all the comments and the stats look right to me.

pickgal said...

Christine Murray said...

Cats are amazing creatures. They have big personalities. Thank you for this giveaway.

Karla S said...

I am not surprised about any of it. The fact that 95% of people feel that their cat lightens their mood does not surprise me,my kitty always make me happy and cheers me up when I am sad :)

Bee W Bedard said...

I think some of the stats are pretty accurate.Hubby will change the litter and I cuddle both of them

Crystal Porter said...

I agree that my cat lightens my mood and that my significant other doesn't like to change the litter. I don't know that he ever has done it. I don't like it either, but I hate the smell more.

Valerie Mallette said...

I agree with a lot of the stats. I particularly relate to the one that says 95% of people feel that their cat lightens their mood because my cat always cheers me up and makes me happier.

Amy C said...

I think that your stats are pretty accurate. I wish the cat litter weighed less too.

Elizabeth Rogers said...

We have 2 cats and litter is the number one problem. Gotta confess though, sometimes our cats get treated like humans!

Kim said...

I think those stats speak the truth, at least in my world they do.

Erica Seaman said...

I like that this litter provides a seven day guarantee!

Carey Hurst said...

I fit with most of the stats you posted. The 75% with treating like a human , I can say that fits very well. My cat was m outlet , I told her everything and she was a friend really when no one else was there. The stats are actually interesting and the numbers seem legit, sometimes stats seem way out there but I can see these ones for sure.
