Dog Owners Are Way Happier Than Cat Owners

April 9, 2019

In the long-running debate on whether dogs or cats are better, it sounds like dogs have the upper hand.

Dog owners are twice as likely to say they’re “very happy” than cat owners, thanks to a new survey. They asked both pet and non-pet people how happy they were. While the happiness levels are similar among these groups, it’s a different matter when you examine pet folks.

36% of dog owners classified themselves as very happy, compared to only 18% of cat owners.

So that’s great news for dogs...they’d be wise to not go bragging about it to their cat pals, though.
