Dog owners have more sex and friends, earn more than cat owners, study says


More fuel has been added to the cat verses dog rivalry.

A study found cat owners earn less than dog owners, and they have fewer friends.

Articles out of the UK tracked the VetPlus study of 1,500 adults who have cats or dogs as pets. They found those who prefer cats rather than dogs are also more likely to be unmarried and live alone.

If that's not enough to anger the feline friendly, the study also said dog lovers enjoy slightly more sex than their cat-loving counterparts - three times a week, to only twice for cat owners.

It gets worse for them, too.

The study showed dog owners climb higher up the career ladder. Eleven percent of dog owners claim to be "extremely successful" compared with just eight percent of cat people.

Researchers also found more cat owners live with their parents than dog owners. And that coincides with the fact feline fans are less likely to be married - 55 percent compared to 60 percent.
