Cat-owner relationships: an investigation

Ever wondered how cat-owner relationships vary? Or how they compare with dog-owner relationships? Veterinary behaviourist Jon Bowen has been conducting a study on dog-owner relationships and is now moving on to cats - and needs your help! 

Over the last three years Jon has been doing research into dog-owner relationships in a range of situations, looking at lifestyle, illness etc. and seeing how it makes an impact on the relationship. He's been using the Monash Dog Owner Relationship Scale (MDORS), which was developed by Pauleen Bennett in Australia, and now he wants to use the same approach to investigate cat-owner relationships. 

If you own a cat, head on over to fill in Jon's survey here to help him conduct the investigation - it'll only take five minutes and we're hoping for some interesting results!
