Why aren’t cats as friendly as dogs?

Researchers can point to a few reasons why Fido and not Miss Whiskers are famously known as men and women “best friend.” For starters, dogs are pack animals, descended from wolves, while cats are solitary and less social. Dogs are hard-wired to get along with others. Plus, pooches and people go way back – as far back as 30,000 years ago, when humans began tossing morsels to wolves in return for protection and help with hunting. Cats, by contrast, have lived with us for only the past 8,000 years or so. Although dogs and cats have developed a deep relationship with humans, canines are more attuned to our feelings and needs.
