Dog people vs. Cat people: some differences

http://shine.yahoo.com/pets/dog-people-vs--cat-people--...

Hunch.com recently polled more than 200,000 pet owners to find out if they were dog people or cat people. The site then crossed those responses with lifestyle surveys and arrived at the following conclusions. Anything sound familiar?

Dog people: 15% more likely to be extroverts
Cat people: 11% more likely to be introverts

...

Dog people: 11% more likely to say they'd support cloning, but only for animals or pets
Cat people: 17% more likely to have completed a graduate degree

...

Dog people: 18% more likely to consider Paul McCartney their favorite Beatle
Cat people: 25% more likely to consider George Harrison their favorite Beatle


A few more stats at link above
What are you?

Currently, I am surrounded by cats. Love dogs, too, but I have 5 cats. :)

2. nooo! how can you say both Paul and George are your favorite?
How?

(me, too - as for 'both' - if I had a yard, I'd have a german shepherd rescue)

3. We've had cats and dogs who happily cohabitated.
One cat, Ace, was absolutely NUTS about dogs.
Loved 'em.
Go figure.

4. I like the adage that cat people like to coo at babies. Dog people liked to be teenagers in love.

5. I like both
I share my home with 4 kitties but I do like dogs. Cats are more independent so they're a better pet for me because I'm gone a lot.

6. I'm a total Dog person and none of the Dog person "characteristics"
pertain to me whatsoever. Most of the Cat person ones do. Go Figure. :shrug:
