We are more similar to each other than we are different. It’s not just a fact, it’s a perspective on life, and it applies to people with pets. According to a recent survey of 1,000 people with dogs and 1,000 people with cats, they both share a love for their furry family members, regularly take their pets on vacation, and often eat together. Guardians of cats and dogs celebrate birthdays and holidays with gifts (although dog people are twice as likely to throw a full party on the occasion). People with dogs, as well as people with cats, take their animals into account when planning their weekly plans.
While there are differences between cat and dog people, they are often a matter of degree or frequency. For example, dog guards have a higher average income than cat guards. They are more likely to be in finance and less likely to be in areas that rely heavily on creativity. This is a common place to find cat guards. People with dogs are more influenced by their pets in their decisions, but people with cats are still influenced – just not as much.
Some of the differences between these two groups of people have to do with relatively superficial things. People with dogs are more likely to watch horror and action films as well as romantic films, while people with cats are more likely to watch indie films, musicals, and documentaries. People with dogs, unlike cats, whose hobbies tend to be quieter than reading, gardening, and writing, are more likely to be involved in active activities such as exercise, dancing, and traveling.
Both dogs and cats have a positive effect on human health and wellbeing. In dogs, much of this is due to the extra physical activity dogs ask us to do. However, cats are more likely to hear their people’s innermost thoughts and feelings, which is why people with cats may attribute a reduction in their stress levels to their pets to a greater extent than people with dogs.
