A website called Hunch.com polled over 200,000 pet owners to find out if they were cat people or dog people. And they also asked a bunch of weird questions to find out how they’re different.
It turns out they have a few things in common: They both tend to talk to animals, including cats AND dogs. They’re both just as likely to have a college degree. And they both hate shirts and sweaters that have pictures of animals on them. (Did you hear that Maria?)
