Do Cats Fall in Love? Simon’s Cat Logic Tries to Find Out

You ever wonder how cats fall in love? Or, should I perhaps ask, have you ever wondered if cats fall in love? Some cat behavior experts at Cats Protection in the UK might have an answer for you, and they’ve partnered up with the animator behind Simon’s Cat to share it with you.

Short answer: kinda. Cats don’t exactly mate for life, and they’re not fussy or picky about who they mate with. That’s some real “survival for the species” stuff right there, I think.

This video is part of a series of shorts called Simon’s Cat Logic, a collaboration between Simon Tofield (creator of Simon’s Cat) and Cats Protection. It was created to shed some light on those mysterious, adorable jerks we call cats. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the whys and wherefores of your cat, then you should check the series out.
