Orangey the Cat

Lest you mistakenly believe that my cat personality days are over, I’m here today with a new video to show you that’s not the case. I’ve just been busy doing other things, which derailed my efforts to get this video done. Ideally, we’d like to be doing about a video a week, all cat and personality related. I’d like to get an intro made, but I’m not that far along yet. Baby steps. Posting videos is a lot harder for me than blogs, mainly because I have a hard time just deciding something is good enough. I’ve been blogging for

Catroverts United!

Yes, my speedy descent into cat study madness is continuing. We’ve launched a YouTube channel just for our cat personality study: Catroverts United. Actually, we’ve done more than just that. Basically, I wanted a place where I could discuss the cat personality things without having it get cluttered in with all the rest of the stuff I’m writing about. I’d like people who are interested in this study to be able to see all the discussion about it easily in one place. So we’ve got a Facebook page set up, the YouTube page has gone up, and I’m going to

The Latest Cat Personality Results!

REMINDER: If you haven’t taken the cat personality survey (and you have a cat, of course), please head on over hre to take it: A heartfelt thank you to everyone who’s participated in our study so far.

Where often it’s difficult to get a good sample size, we’ve received information for over 1,300 cats in just one week! Remember, the largest study we’ve found so far consisted of 2,802 cats. We would love to have more. (There’s a certain ring to “Largest Study on Cat Personalities.” Guinness

Cat Personality Update

Well, that was fast! When Karol and I sat down to talk about our cat survey, we discussed how many data points we’d need for it to be valid and successful. We figured if we got 200, that was at least enough to build on, and we planned on going through the data starting at the beginning of March. Well, as of right now, we’ve got responses about 500 cats from over 300 cat owners. (22 hours after first posting it.) So I’m here with a bit of an update to answer a few questions that have come up, and

Studying Cat Personalities

And now for something completely different! Believe it or not, a professor and I are embarking on a new scientific study on the personality of cats. I’m glad today isn’t April Fools, because I assume almost all of you would think I wasn’t being serious, but I most definitely mean this. During the psychology of personality class I sat in last semester, I became more and more intrigued with just how personality is measured and how it’s affected by different factors. Karol (the professor) and I spoke at length about this, and we became more and more focused on how
