ABC NEWS reports, a research study by the University of Georgia shows a never-before-seen side of family cats, providing a glimpse into the lives they lead when we're not around.

The researchers attached small cameras, called "Kitty Cams," around the necks of over 50 cats - and let them roam.

According to Kerrie Anne Loyd, a University of Georgia researcher, the team gathered thousands of hours of video from 55 different cats.

The team then analyzed the video, finding some very unexpected results.
It turns out our feline friends may be more welcoming than we thought.
"One of the most surprising things we witnessed was cats adopting a second set of owners," the team wrote on the research website. "Four of our project kitties were recorded entering another household for food and/or affection!"

Who says cats aren't as friendly as dogs?

But at the same time, don't think all cats are angels. According to Loyd, some of the kitties that participated in the research project were channeling their inner tiger.

The research also analyzed the number of risks each cat took, showing that male cats are much more aggressive than females.

Younger cats also took more risks than older cats. Maybe cats aren't that different from their owners after all.
