Study: ‘Crazy Cat Lady’ stereotype isn’t a thing


Research shows the Crazy Cat Lady trope isn't real

(CNN) – The crazy cat lady.

An enduring entertainment stereotype.

Turns out – it’s not a real thing.

Sorry to disappoint you dog lovers.

The new study from UCLA shows owning lots of cats doesn’t mean you’re mad, sad, or anxious.

Researchers analyzed 500 pet owners.

They found feline owners are not more likely to suffer from depression or anxiety.

This backs up similar study from the University of College London that found no link between cat ownership and psychotic symptoms.
