I will admit that there may be some truth to that. Matt had Magnum, Boomer and Bumper before I met him / moved in with him. They all come when called, stay off counters etc. Boomer has actually got badly behaved since I moved in, he used to be very timid and shy and now he is a terror
Scully on the other hand, I had more to do with, and he had some qualities that obviously come from his other home (he was 8 when we got him) but he has changed a lot since then too. He is harder to control, doesn't always listen etc.
Matt is always telling me that I am too soft on them and that is why they don't behave, or why Bumper pukes for attention (and he did that before I moved in
). I think men in general are
stricter with cats and set boundaries compared to some / most
women which changes their behaviour.
Many people say our cats act more like dogs, and maybe the men = dogs / women = cats thing overlaps when women have dogs and men have cats.
