Scientists have ranked cats among the laziest animals

Pet cats, unlike most other animals, were incredibly lazy. Such conclusions were made by American scientists at the University of California at Davis.

The American study involved studying the phenomenon of an animal choosing between available or difficult-to-eat food and choosing the latter option. However, when analyzing the behavior of cats, the scientists concluded that they would prefer to get ‘free’ food first, without labor.

The test results were presented at a virtual meeting of the American Society for Animal Behaviour. The co-author of the study, Michael Delgado, cites the possibility of attempting to simulate natural hunting behaviour as an explanation for such cat behaviour. However, cats who do not have freely available food can make an effort to obtain it in case of need.
