Oddly, cats like to sit on their owners shoulders and see what life looks like from our point of view. Some will do it only at home, and some who are more active they will sit on the owner’s shoulder to go out for a walk, or explore the cities.
Generally “shoulder cats” are young, agile cats and can hold poses for a while. Research has shown that the desire to climb up on the shoulder is known to arise from behaviors that simply require attention. Once approved, they continue to do it, but this is very rare.
Another thing that appeals to cats is the height. It gives the cat a sense of stability because it can irradiate large spaces without moving. When restrained, cats tend to run away, but sitting on their shoulders allows them to move freely at any time, increasing safety and fun in this position.
Enough talking about cats perching on our shoulders, people started this ambiguous trend with other animals as well: snake, raccoon, ferret, and even a horse! Animals consider people’s shoulder as a stable reliance and they are willing to earn trust from humans.
