Few things more accurately gauge our private thoughts and opinions than our Google search history. Recently, a U.S. map has been making the rounds that depicts the top Google searches for each of the 50 states. Some of the results are unsurprising — take, for example, my home state: “Why is Kansas so flat?” Others are more intriguing: “Why is Pennsylvania so haunted?”
In that spirit, here are 10 things Google’s autocomplete feature has to tell us about our cats. Do you disagree with the results? Tell us in the comments!
Kinda saw this one coming. “Mean” and “weird” are also totally legit.
Apparently we also think kittens are cute — and clingy. They’re like the perfect best friend who just happens to call you 20 times a day.
Too bad they’re also annoying and loud. They’re like drunk baseball fans, I guess?
All Persian cats need a sugar mama.
This one is telling. Spay and neuter, people!
I confess: My gray tabby, Bubba Lee Kinsey, has been on a diet for like eight years. He has made marginal progress.
This one is also telling. Quick answer for you: They’re not.
Seems we can’t make up our minds whether tuxedo cats are friendly or mean.
Poor torties have a bad rap. Seriously — find a tortie or calico and hug her. I’m hugging my calico Phoenix right now.
While your’e at it, hug a Sphynx, too.
