Are you a cat person or a dog person? It’s a question that reveals far more than just what furry friend is snuggled up on your couch right now. When a new friend (or first date) self-identifies as a cat- or dog-person, you might think you’ve caught a glimpse at their personality—and as it turns out, you are probably right.
According to this fascinating infographic from 1800PetSupplies.com, cat- and dog-people have starkly different personality traits and lifestyles. Some are to be expected; for example, kittens require less space than their puppy counterparts, so it’s no surprise that cat owners are twice as likely to live in an apartment. Other differences are wholly unexpected, like the fact that cat owners are 21 percent more likely to enjoy puns, or that dog owners are 36 percent more likely to use a pop song as a ring tone.
Still, there are some traits that both sets of pet owners share equally, like talking to pets, enjoying musical theater, or having optimistic outlooks on life. So if you’re singing show tunes to your four-legged friend about how the sun will come out tomorrow, well, you’re in good company.
