Something amusing I read in RD, courtesy of BizRate Research:
56% of women and 41% of men say their pets are more affectionate than their partners.
Our cats and dog can be pretty affectionate, but I would hesitate to say more so than my wife. She may feel differently about me.
45% of women say their pets are cuter than their partners; 24% of men feel the same way.
Our male cat, Zane, who is an all-grey short-hair, is gorgeous. My wife keeps insisting I should find a pet model agent for him. Our other cat and the dog are cute, but I would honestly say they don’t compare to Zane.
But the animals being cuter than my wife? I’m not stupid. (Contrary to what you might think…)
