Abstract Cats were exposed to photographs of bearded men. Findings of Prior Investigators Boone (1958) found inconclusive results in studying feline reactions to clean-shaven men. Norquist (1988) performed a series of experiments in which cats were exposed to photographs of Robert Bork (not pictured here), a man whose beard is confined largely to the underside of the jaw. Materials Five photographs were used in the study. The test subjects were female cats, all between the ages of four and six. 214 cats participated in the study. Methods Results Notes
