The ASPCA studied cat and dog owners and have interesting insights as to why people pick the pet they pick!
According the the study, dog owners pick their pet on the way it looks, while cat owners pick based on personality. The study was taken as an exit poll at rescue shelters. As families left the shelter with their pet they were asked how they knew the chosen pet was “the one”.
Dog owners always stated that it was the dog’s physical appearance.
People who adopted cats said their choice was based on the way the cat interacted with them.
I chose my husband on both looks and personality!
