Is Your Cat Left- or Right-Pawed? Here’s How to Find Out!

This cute video by famous Japanese kitties Maru and Hana shows how to find out if your feline friend is right-handed right-pawed or left-pawed! All you need is a glass and a piece of dry cat food:

So, learning if your cat is a righty or lefty doesn’t really change anything…but it does solve our curiosity!

Interestingly, according to a study back in 1991 at the Ataturk University in Turkey, half of cats were righties, 40% were lefties, and the remaining 10% were ambidextrous (using left and right paws equally). In dogs, a different study in 2006 concluded that half are left-pawed and half are right-pawed.

So is your cat a righty or a lefty?

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
