No matter what nationality, color or religion you are, there are two groups of people on this planet, and this distinction is probably the most important one. Are you a dog person or a cat person? While being an animal lover makes a person great by itself, it should be noted that cats and their fans are just simply more awesome than other people.

It’s a common misconception that the only cat owners are lonely spinsters, however, Freddie Mercury, James Dean, Marlon Brando, and many other celebrities, both dead and alive, would probably disagree. And let’s not forget, Ancient Egyptians loved their cats so much, they considered them sacred and had them mummified after death. Many studies have been conducted in order to find out what exactly makes a person choose a dog or a cat as their pet and scientists, psychologists and others have concluded that it is actually the person’s personality which is the key to choosing the right pet for them.
What Are The Differences Between Cat Lovers And Dog Lovers
One might say that dog lovers and cat lovers have completely different personalities. While dog owners are more extroverted and outgoing, cat owners tend to be introverted and more sensitive. There are some studies that even claim that cat owners are smarter and more intellectually curious.

Cat owners are of course not surprised by this, because cats are smarter than dogs. Since dogs are a bit more dependant as pets, it means their owners are like that as well, and dog owners tend to follow rules a bit more. Cat owners, on the other hand, like their pets, like their independence and are more expedient. This doesn’t mean that cat lovers are loners who detest other people; they just sometimes prefer spending some time alone.
Due to their introverted streak, cat owners are often seen as submissive, meaning they are not forceful or pushy. They understand the concept of personal space and the need for some quiet time. It should also be noted that some studies showed that cat owners have a greater appreciation of art, they are more adventurous and curious, and they have better imagination and some pretty unusual ideas. Basically, they’re their pets, just in human form.
Cat Owner Is A Perfect Person To Date
Let’s just begin with the fact that a pet can significantly affect the quality of your alone time with your date. If they have a cat, it will probably be totally uninterested in what you’re doing, unlike a dog who will most likely jump all over you while trying to get some kisses from you. You want your date to do the kissing, not their dog. Seeing as your date will probably be somewhat independent this means they will not be needy and clingy but will be thoughtful, sensitive and understanding.

All cat owners know their pets love to be cuddled only on their own terms, and this actually means that they’re more attuned to non-verbal communication. Thus, your significant other will also be more attuned to your emotions and needs. While cat lovers do like to keep to themselves, they also tend to be more open-minded and they love to try out new things. Since they are under the influence of their pet’s personality, cat owners are quite affectionate and they do love to cuddle.
So while cats and their owners might be a bit complicated, they definitely aren’t boring and they will constantly keep you on your toes. But whether you’re a dog or a cat person is completely irrelevant as long as you show all animals love and affection they deserve.
