Are You a CAT Person or a DOG Person?

Whether you prefer having a cat or a dog as a pet can say a lot about your personality. Here's a list of traits for each, and you can be the judge if there's any truth to it.


Cat owners tend to be...

Dog owners tend to be...
  • introverted, self-conscious, shy, secretive, sensitive
  • interested in quieter pursuits like reading, watching movies and videos, music, etc.
  • Are homebodies or prefer quiet places
  • Like their creature comforts and although they expect people to notice them, they tend not to boast, preferring to draw attention to themselves in less direct ways
  • Have a small circle of close friends rather than a larger group
  • extroverted, eager, unembarrassed, open
  • Interested in sports, adventuring, exploring, and outdoor pursuits
  • Like to be busy and go out a lot, like loud places like parties
  • They tease and pick on each other in a friendly way, and like talking and boasting about their accomplishments
  • Have a large circle of friends and acquaintances and they make friends easily

So what do you think? Does having a cat or dog reveal anything about its owner? Do any of these characteristics apply to you or anyone you know?

Cat Person to the fullest, I have two. But that doesn't mean I don't have room for dogs in my life :)

Except for the homebody/quiet places bit, I'm definitely a cat person... I could never own a dog, really. As adorable as I may find certain breeds, dogs are just too messy and out-there for me to live with every single day. So I have this adorable siamese kitty instead.

I just adore cats. I'm currently owned by 2. Personality wise I have to tell you that your description is pretty close to accurate. That's interesting - Very interesting

I've always preferred cats over dogs and after seeing that I am still definitely a cat person. I had all the cat characteristics and none of the dog.

I think I have a mix of the two lists of traits, but I consider myself a dog person. I love how affectionate and playful most dogs are, and I'm allergic to cats.

I am both, have both, and love both! As for the traits, I guess it makes sense that I'm neither extreme in any of them, but somwhere in the middle. . .

Wow, cat person describes me to a T. I have cats but I've had dogs and love them. I just can't see myself taking the dog for a walk in the middle of the night.

Well, Annabelle would agree: I'm a dog person! I think when I'm my most happy, I am a dog person...but then sometimes I have cat-like moods! xo

Based on the qualities..I am a mixture of both but in reality I am not really into pets although I think I would rather have a dog than a cat!
