Cats are independent because they were once in the wild and cats are better at hunting, so they do not depend much on humans on their food. there is a saying that goes " dogs have masters, cats have staff. '' that's why dogs are easier to train, but cats are easier to take care of. there are some cats that do like attention, like a Persian cat, but they were bred to be that domestic.
