Cat’s Vanity Is Out of Control, Says Expert
It’s normal for cats to have a certain level of vanity, says feline psychology expert, Dr. Yunus Agraba of the University of Southern California, but too much self-love can be damaging. That’s why Dr. Agraba is worried about Mitzy, a.k.a. Test Subject #2412-F, a cat taking part in a three year study being conducted at USC that is attempting to quantify the average feline ego.
“Cats of Mitzy’s age are expected to exhibit a certain amount of narcissism,” explained Dr. Agraba, “but Mitzy’s vanity is off the charts. She literally stares at her reflection in the mirror for up to four hours each day. That is, when she’s not running away from him it. Cats are weird.”
