Any correlation between being a Katy fan and liking cats?
« on: April 27, 2014, 11:00:16 AM »
We all know that Katy loves cats.  And it seems that many people on this board, including myself, also really like cats.  I wonder if there is any correlation between being a Katy fan and liking cats.  Are Katy fans more likely than the general public to like cats?

If so, I wonder why that is?  Does knowing that Katy likes cats give us a favorable impression of her, which also makes us like her music?  Or maybe something about Katy's personality that makes her like cats also makes her music appeal to people who like cats?  Or maybe becoming a fan of Katy also makes you like cats, even if you didn't like them previously? (although I liked cats even as a kid, before Katy was even born).

Or is there no correlation at all?

Interesting thought!  Personally, I don't dislike cats, but I'm not a huge fan of them, either.  I doubt anyone who didn't like Katy's music would suddenly like her if they found they had a mutual love of cats.  It may be that those who are fans of Katy are more likely to share their love of cats because it's something that links the fanbase to Katy.  Other artists might have fans who like cats just as much (if not more), but it may not come up in discussion as frequently whereas Katy has the cat theme in many of her projects so Katycats tend to bring them up more!

Cats are my favorite animals. I'm in love with my kitty...it's probably why Katy and I have such a bond

I'm thinking it's a combination of the two.  While I don't think somebody who dislikes Katy's music would suddenly like it, I think liking cats could make the difference between being a casual fan and a full Katycat.  There don't seem to be too many celebrities that openly like cats (Katy, and Taylor Swift are the only 2 I can think of), so that does help us cat people to connect with a celebrity who does like cats; we feel that they would understand us better.  I would think that there would be some correlation where people who have a cat person personality would relate to Katy's music, since she would also have a cat person personality.  Do I make sense?

I think liking cats is cute, so maybe we think of Katy as being even cuter. But it's almost certainly a coincidence. Not to mention the fact that not all of us love cats the way she does (I do, however).

I like cats, but I much prefer dogs.  The fact that Katy loves cats is pretty cute and cool. I wouldn't say that Katy liking cats makes her more favourable.

I never liked cats when I was younger, I was scared of them. But ever since becoming a KatyCat, I am not afraid at all and I actually badly want a cat!  :katycat1:

I keep adopting pet mice from animal shelters and think it doesn't make a difference to Katy if somebody donates money to a cat rescue or to a general animal rescue. She may prefer to have cats (and now one small dog) around her, and to integrate her preference into parts of her shows etc., but I don't believe it's to be taken too literally. Katy, I'm sure, cares about animals, not exclusively cats.
Similarly, she may be an ambassador for UNICEF but certainly wouldn't regard an organisation dealing with the problems of disadvantaged elderly people as less important.
When I seriously became her fan I still didn't have an idea that she especially likes cats, and to me it's a kind of trivia fact which by itself doesn't mean anything.

Your mouse is darn cute. I miss the time when I had rats.

@Icypole Thanks!  :) that was on the day Roar video was released, he's so old now he's almost lost the use of his hind legs, and he pees into my hand. But he's still enjoying himself, and holds perfectly still when I 'groom' him with my lips. He should write a bio about his life! That's cool you had rats! - sorry having gone off topic, back to cats then...

It seems maybe there isn't as much of a correlation as I thought.  I didn't realize until now that Katy recently got a dog.  I wonder why she would get a new pet just days before her tour.
