Purrfect Together: Celebrate the Bond Between You and Your Kitty This September

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Did you know that September is Happy Healthy Cat Month? There's never been a better time to show your cats some extra love. Recently, the cat lovers at Meow Mix ran the Purrfect Together Survey, which asked cat parents around the country about their special bond with their four-legged friends. Here are some of the meow-nificent results:

83% of cats take naps with their humans

This is surprising—and not because 83% of people love napping with kitty. The bigger question is: Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don't get to experience the joy of napping with their cats? I sleep with Mommy all the time, day and night. I can only imagine how lonely these humans are in the middle of the night!


80% of cat parents believe they can interpret their kitty's meows.

While humans and cats may purr in different languages, that doesn't stop most cat moms and dads from understanding what their kitty wants—whether it be some treats, cat nip, or just a snuggle partner. Mommy understands our meows purrfectly.  She knows when Lexy is hungry or when she has brought her a toy in the middle of the night.  She knows when I’m hunting a bug or when I want her to pick me up and hug me.  And she knows when Lexy is just saying hi or when I’m just singing a song.  It’s pretty cool to have a mom who understands us.

72% of cat parents love to surprise their kitties with treats

Speaking of treats, nothing makes a cat happier than some spontaneous, unexpected goodies from the person who cares for them the most. Mommy portions out our treats carefully.  OK, I’m going to divulge a secret here… we mostly get treats when we’re doing photo shoots. She tries to sneak me treats every now and then without Lexy knowing (because she has to watch her weight), but Lexy hears the bag every time!

55% of cats love chicken-flavored nibbles.

Exciting news: Meow Mix has just released a brand new culinary-inspired food made with real chicken or salmon, Bistro Recipes—a classy meal for a classy kitty!



Head over Meow Mix's new Purrfect Together web portal right meow, and you can download a coupon for $2.50 off any bag of Meow Mix Bistro Recipes. How cool is that?!?

And that's not all! You need a classy painting to go with that classy meal. On the Purrfect Together portal, you can enjoy the unique experience of converting a photo of you and your cat into a Meowsterpiece—a digital "oil" painting that helps express and immortalize your cat-love on canvas. We did it, and you should too! We love our meowsterpieces!

  1. I want to know what's wrong with those 45% of kitties who DON'T like chicken flavored nibbles!

  2. Gorgeous Meowsterpieces with your Mom! I or my Momma do all of these ... but our bond is very strong ... and one of the reasons we have our blog. Now, if every cat in the world had the same, that would be PURRFECT.

  3. Yes, those are gorgeous Meowsterpieces. I have a special bond with M and D also. I can easily communicate with them and let them know what I want or need. We signed up for the coupon. Looks like a good deal, and thanks for offering it.

  4. I love your portrait meowsterpieces! I think statistics are always interesting to see if you fall into that category or not. And yes, of course I can interpret my cats' meows! :-)

  6. Lita usually sleeps with me for at least a while at night. I don't get to sleep very well without her on my bed!

  7. Your portraits are great! We have special bonds with Zoe and Gracie, too. Zoe is especially connected with me, and Gracie is bonded more with Tracey. They both love us, and vice versa, but they definitely have their favorites. :)

  9. Who are these people that don't nap with their pets lol?

  10. Of course we want to spoil our fur kids. I did find it interesting that the majority of cats like chicken flavor. Although The Tribe of Five each have their own distinctive preferences, none of them are chicken fans. Go figure.

  11. Neat statistics! And lovely photos. Thanks for sharing.

  12. I'm in the 80% of people who can interpet their cat's meows. Of course, the subtle clues help, like following me to the kitchen and standing by the cupboard where the treats are kept. LOL Great post, love the photos!

  14. I love it when my kitties take naps with me! There is nothing quite like curling up with warm, purring kitties when it is cold outside (which is often in Michigan). These statistics are very accurate for my chicken-loving kitties! :)

  15. I think I can figure out most of what my cat is trying to communicate, but I guess I don't know for sure. I would have thought the percentage of cats who like chicken kibble would be much higher. My cat seems to love chicken flavor.

  16. Cute and great facts! Henry is a dog but we napped together today :)

  17. Thanks for such a well researched & informative post.... & gawjus as well!! I was surprised by some of these statistics, even with Isa & Betty living them out in front of me everyday!

  18. Great facts and love the pics! Our adopted feral "Binx" loves suprise treats! I love how he runs and mews whenever we have something for him!

  19. I had fun reading these statistics. Thanks for sharing. Our kitty likes to nap with us but during the summer it is almost impossible to keep him inside (he was stray and neglected when we rescued him).

  20. Great post and photos!

    We sleep together at night and nap together in the afternoon. Those are the best moments in our day! Nothing beats those precious times :)

  21. Love both your Meowsterpieces - Nala would have loved the nibbles and always enjoyed a good head rub and nap.

  22. We love Summer's comments. We think we should add "happy and healthy kitties keep humans happy and healthy."

  24. My cat Marty has never liked sleeping by me :(. He does like treats, chicken flavored or otherwise, he rarely meets a treat he doesn't like

    ReplyDelete
