20+ Photos Proving Cats Are Good Boys Too

Cats tend to be seen as bad guys because they are considered unfriendly, cold, and malicious. But some recent studies prove that they actually enjoy interacting with their owners more than they love food. Some cats will stay by your side when you’re sick or sad and others even take care of your child when you’re not around.

We at Bright Side believe that cats don’t deserve such a bad PR image, so we collected photos that show how cats might be some of the most precious furry friends we could’ve asked for.
