Cat Guys; The New Trend

I just came across an interesting article in the New York Times that may be debunking the common assumption that dog is a man's best friend. It seems that more heterosexual men are coming out of the "cat closet," opting for a fluffy, cuddly cat instead of a high maintenance rowdy dog. Sandra DeFeo, an executive director at the Humane Society of New York said that there's been an increase in single men adopting cats and Carole Wilbourn, a cat therapist, said that the number of her straight male clients has risen 25 percent over the past five years.

As we all know, owning a cat comes with a plethora of negative connotations, especially for women, but I don't buy it — an animal lover is an animal lover! And doesn't owning a feline say something about his confidence? I certainly think it does. What do you think? Are you turned off by men that own cats? Are you turned on because you're a cat lover too? Or does it make no difference to you whatsoever?
