Cats' brains are very similar to humans' in some ways, and studies show that cats have human-like emotions. Although experts disagree on the depth and range of these emotions, they agree that they're not that different from people's feelings. Perhaps this explains why cat owners ascribe the same personality traits to their pets that psychologists use to definite human personality: extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness and openness.
