If your answers were:

Mostly A's:
Your cat is shy, fearful, unsociable.  She likes to have
little human interaction with anyone other than her "main"
human. She does really appreciate you, but needs her own

Mostly B's:
Your cat is aggressive, active, excitable.  She exercises by
keeping you on your toes.  She can overdo it with her crazy
behavior, but with your help she will escape harm.

Mostly C's:
Your cat is very social, easygoing, sure of herself.  She
enjoys humans, other cats and pets, and thrives on affection
and attention.  She is a loyal lovable companion who cherishes
your companionship.
