Are You A Cat or Dog Person? (Infographic)

Are You A Cat or Dog Person? (Infographic)

Identifying as a cat or dog person isn’t just about picking a team. Thanks to some entertaining research and surveys on this topic, we now know that the cat vs. dog person argument is backed up by psychological facts. So, why does this matter? This argument gets to the root of some very valuable human pursuits. PsychologyToday asks, “Are dog people happier than cat people?” And, perhaps cat people are more distinct individuals and perceived as more intelligent than dog people. Does that mean the more intelligent you are, the less happy you are? Whoa, that just got deep.

Now, back to the fun: Check out this interesting infographic to find out if you’re a cat or a dog person!

I am devoted to dogs but I have a cat too and I love him to death.

I'm a dog person, totally. Love cats, but because I'm allergic to their dander, and have rescued several hunting dogs, can't have them inside, and haven't found a good living situation for them to be outside.

This is silly. I'm a 'cat person', though I love all animals. However, I do not fit into the 'cat person' category of this infographic
