It's one of the most controversial debates, who's better? Dog people or cat people?
Well now the debates can be settled thanks to new research from The General Social Survey, a social sciences study that has been conducted in the United States since the 1970s, revealed that a much higher percentage of people who owned dogs found they enjoyed their lives more than those who had cats as pets.
Research from 2018 showed that 36% of dog owners defined themselves as “very happy,” in comparison to 18% of cat owners.
Those who owned both cats AND dogs were also asked the same question, with 28% answering that their lives were very happy.
Sticking to the stereotype of single people living with cats, the study found that those who owned dogs were more likely to be married and own their own homes.
