Bonds between cats and their owners

To what extent can it be said that cats are really connected with their breeders and can cats exchange the same feeling with their owners?
There are many experts who say that cats are strictly independent animals.  These same experts say that cats have chosen to associate with humans because of their survival strategy.  While many disagree with this statement, many agree with it - although those who agree are normally those in the percentile who disagree with cats.

Cats choose their owners

Anyone who has ever owned a cat will tell you that cats are very well at connecting with people, although they are very special.  Normally, a cat will choose one person in the household with whom it bonds.  You jump on your lap to attract attention or cuddle up to you at night when you're sleeping.  Purring is a strong sign of affection, especially in cats that are looking to bond.
Although many experts have tried to understand it, no one really knows why cats choose a particular person to bond with.  It may be the person's manner, their voice, or simply the way they treat the cat.  It may be that the person is very gentle, or perhaps a little more energetic - to bring out the best in the cat.
According to Kristyn Vitale of Oregon State University (USA):

 "Like dogs, cats are socially flexible when it comes to their bond with humans. Most cats are strongly attached to their owners and use them as a source of security in a new environment”.

Cats bond with their owners

Do cats have feelings for their owners?

 Researchers have attempted to address this topic in several ways, one of which is clairvoyance.  Some say that cats bond with someone through a "psychic aura" that is compatible with the person and the cat.  If a cat senses that someone is giving it a bad vibe, it will simply ignore that person.  While this may be true for some, the majority of cat owners will tell you that this could not be further from the truth.
Although there are many theories and speculations, no one really knows why cats bond with humans.  There is little or no evidence available, other than cats and their natural instinct for physical survival.  Those who own cats know that cats need attention, simply to feel useful.  They love to be pampered by their owners and will fill you with attention and affection if you give them the opportunity. 
A New cat owners may find that the emotional bonds are very different.  Cats are different from other animals, including dogs, in that they bond differently.  Different breeds of cats form different bonds with their owners, although most cats prefer affection and attention.  The more time you spend with your cat, the more your cat will become attached to you.  Over the years, you'll find that the bond you create with your pet has become very strong - and simply can't be broken.
