A week or so ago, I wrote a post at catster.com on using the MBTI (r) (Myers-Briggs Type Inventory) to figure out your cat’s personality type. However, one astute catster reader suggested that I develop a test specifically for cats. So I did! You can read about The Meows and Paws Type Inventory here:

My orange kitten Norton took the MPTI and scored as a SmNOC. He’s highly collaborative, completely scattered, and has a little voice.
