They hug their pets.
And they’re also hugging their pets in the most intimate of ways.
In the last decade, there has been a trend of people hugging their cats.
And a new study by a group of researchers at the University of Maryland in College Park and the University at Buffalo suggests this phenomenon may be tied to a social aspect of human communication.
“People tend to be more intimate when they hug their cats,” said Dr. Robert A. Binder, lead author of the study, which was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
“So, people tend to get closer and feel more secure in the presence of their cats, so they might get a hug from their cat, or they might do a handshake.”
In the study of more than 4,000 people, researchers surveyed the participants about their experience with hugs from both their cat and dog.
They found that people were much more likely to hug their cat if they were hugging their dog.
In addition, the researchers found that cat and human hugging correlated in the sense that people would more likely hug their pet if they had a strong emotional bond with the cat.
But this was not the case for people who were hugging a dog.
The study found that hugs from cats and dogs were more likely than hugs from other people to correlate with a strong bond with a cat.
So what causes a strong relationship with your cat?
Binder thinks this may be rooted in the way humans communicate with one another.
“I think we talk to each other through gestures and facial expressions and body language,” he said.
“The way we think about human communication and communication about animals is that it’s about the connection, the feeling and the experience that people are making, and we don’t want to be missing that connection.”
And when a strong connection is there, it’s a lot more effective than just a few hugs.
“It can be quite challenging for people to maintain a connection with their cat when they have a stronger emotional bond to it,” Binder said.
“In other words, when we hug our dog, it makes us feel closer and more secure and less anxious, and so the cat doesn’t feel like it’s being attacked.”
