About This Quiz

According to statistics, there are around 75 million cats in America.  In the world, that number can be anywhere between 200 million and 600 million. Why the wide range? You know cats, they're hard to pin down. Factor in wild cats and all that business in different countries around the world and it's just safe to say there is a heck of a lot of kitties out there. And as anyone who's ever tried to pet a strange cat's belly knows, not all kitties are purrs and cuddles. Sometimes those little furballs can get downright salty with you. Call it a cat's prerogative but for real, some cats just have nothing but attitude. And they need it! They're little, they'd get pushed around if they didn't have sass to spare.

Knowing as we do that some kitties are just much nicer than others, there is but one question we need to address now and that's all about you. What kind of a cat are you, anyway? Are you the curled-up-on-a-lap nice kitty? Or are you the hissing, snarling, don't-mess-with-me kind of a cat? Are you a good cat or a bad cat? Why not grab a plate of tuna and some milk, take the quiz and find out?
