Abstract. Stress can be experienced by anyone and occurs in everyday life, stress emphasizes experiences that occur when individuals perceive or evaluate the experience as a threat or potential danger and the resources they have are inadequate to overcome it. Individuals will look for ways or use the resources they have in an effort to reduce stress, one of which is keeping a pet or bonding with pets. Pet attachment or the attachment that pet owners have with their pets is how someone has an emotional connection with their pets based on the interactions they make, and pet owners get a sense of comfort and even psychological support. The purpose of this study was to see whether there was an effect of pet attachment on the stress level of cat pet owners in the city of Bandung. Respondents in this study amounted to 243 respondents and the data analysis used was simple linear regression analysis. The pet attachment variable was measured using the Lexington Attachment to Pets Scale (LAPS) and stress levels were measured using the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). The results of this study are found that pet attachment contributes to stress levels, when the pet attachment is strong, the stress level can decrease. The contribution of the pet attachment variable to the stress level is 6.4% and the regression coefficient value is -0.145.
