Cat lovers are going to hate this study.  A new survey says that having a dog is sexier than having a cat. 

Petsies showed 1,000 respondents pictures of people that they were attracted to with and without dogs and cats. They were trying to figure out which looked more attractive. Petsies creates custom stuffed animals based on your furry friend. 

For men: the sexiest pet to have if you're a man is a puppy. That puppy makes you appear to be 24% sexier, 14% more trustworthy, and even 7% smarter Meanwhile, cats only made guys 5% sexier. 

Once that puppy grows up, it won't have much of an effect on your attractiveness. Adult dogs only made guys 3% sexier, according to the survey. 

For women: the sexiest pet to have is a medium-sized dog. That dog makes you appear 7% sexier, 7% more trustworthy, and even  6% smarter.

How attractive is a woman with a cat? Apparently, she's not as attractive as a woman without a cat. Cats actually make women appear to be LESS sexy, according to the survey.
