Many experts have the opinion that cats are independent animals. According to these same experts, cats choose to stay with humans as a survival strategy. While some people concur, others do not. Although, those that agree are more than those who do not. The cat and owner bond is still somewhat a mystery.
Have you ever met anyone who owns a cat, they’ll tell you that cats bond really well with people even though they are picky about whom they bond with.

Despite the efforts made by many experts to understand why cats pick a particular person with whom they bond, they have not found out why. It could be the attitude of the person, the voice or maybe just the way the cat is treated by that person. It may also be because of the person’s gentleness or slight aggressiveness which brings out the best in the cat.
Researchers have tried to approach this subject through different perspectives, one of them being that there is a “psychic aura” a person exudes that makes a cat bond with them, one that matches both the individual and the cat. A cat will not pay attention to a person if it gets bad vibes. While some may not completely agree, most cat owners will tell you that it is totally true.
