• Almost 7,000 people took part in the study published in the Computers in Human Behaviour journal, by filling out a survey about how cat videos affect their moods.

  • The study also revealed that the most popular sites for watching cat videos emerged as Facebook, YouTube, Buzzfeed and arguably one of the original ‘funny cat’ websites, I Can Has Cheezburger.
