The cliché of the "crazy cat woman", as you know it from series like the "Simpsons" or "How I Met Your Mother", is unjustified. Because the so-called "crazy cat lady" does not exist. This is the conclusion reached by researchers from the University of California. Scientists find out: The "crazy cat woman" is nothing more than a cliché - Image: Shutterstock / Olena Yakobchuk

How does society actually define a "crazy cat lady"? A "crazy cat woman" is characterized by her bizarre nature. She usually lives alone and has at least 2 cats.

For their study, which was published in the journal "Royal Society Open Science", the scientists from the University of California analyzed 561 cat owners, including 111 men.

Scientists disprove cliché

The researchers investigated whether there was a connection between pet ownership and the mental and physical health of the test subjects. The researchers also got to the bottom of the cliché of the "crazy cat woman".

The result: "We have found no evidence of the cat woman's stereotype: cat owners are no different from other pet owners." This would disprove the stereotype of the "crazy cat lady" once and for all.
