    They'd prefer a robot over you if it did the same thing. But sure, we'll go with valuable.
    No they wouldn't. They would know it's not real and they only like humans. Cats can feel love/care from humans, they wouldn't feel anything from the robot.

    Well, at least dogs care about their humans.
    Idk, seems like anthropomorphisation of the animal to me. Dogs and cats have very different evolutionary strategies for survival. Cats are solitary predators. Does it mean they don't care about their "owner"? They probably express it in different ways. Equally, does the slavish adulation of a dog really constitute caring? I find it obsequious, which is why I don't keep them as pets. Such behaviour in a human would be seen as unhealthy dependence. Yet it is probably caring in a sense. Humans come somewhere in between the two species, which is why both their behaviours are odd to our eyes. Yet a dog is no less selfish for acting on impulses resulting from its evolutionary history, to ensure its survival and the propagation of its genes, than is a cat. Its behaviours simply arose in a different evolutionary context.

    Depends if it’s an outdoor or indoor cat. If it’s outdoor then it will be depressed. If indoor then it’ll be fine 🙃

    He's both indoor and outdoor - mostly indoor, though

    Cats care about their humans, too. They miss us when they don't see us for a few hours and come running to greet us when we're back home.
    Exactly.

    my cat follow me everywhere if he isn't completely asleep (sometimes he will be curled up on my bed, but when I go downstairs he runs after me). When I come back from school, he comes running to the door. Sometimes when I am in the bathroom he starts scratching on the door. No, it is not just because he is hungry. He does this right after he has been fed as well.
