Why Men Love Dogs and Women Cats?

Not all people are pet owners but those who regard their pets as part of the family are plenty. And when the topic of which would one choose between a cat and a dog, the answer depends on who is being asked. Although there are men who would pick cats over dogs and ladies who would prefer a dog over a feline, there is still a distinct line. Most women are cat lovers and a number of men are dog owners. Inasmuch as gender affects food choices, so does pet preference. Pets even become issues in relationships at times. Let’s take look on what divides Adam and Eve when it comes to choosing their pet companions:
When it comes to women living with a cat than a dog, perhaps because cats can be like men, something women wished they were, too. The truth is, women also act like cats, that is, there would be times they would play with you but only to a certain extent. Cats would give you attention but rarely. They are independent or should I say, they just don’t really care? They are nocturnal and hunt for food at night only to sleep all day. The previous sentence might be descriptive of men than women, though.
It could also be that women also find cats to be more feminine than dogs. That being said, some prefer to express their femininity on how they design their houses and choose their pets. Isn’t it that some women love pink and most prefer floral designs? But really, it’s hard to say why some women prefer cats despite the latter’s devil-may-care attitude and hard-headedness. Do they remind them of men or themselves?
Based on the internet, men’s preference for dogs are influenced by two things, the bravery and strength of a typical dog remind them of themselves while its being loyal and a pleaser is what they wished their women to be. In a nutshell, they love the dogs’ masculinity and loyalty. However, is it also fair to say that men, like dogs, want to get the attention of their keepers? And what traits do dogs have that men wished ladies would have?
Canines are loyal to their owners up until the end. They can be taught dog tricks. When they see their masters, they would jump, wag their tails and express their joy. Dogs would even defend their pet owners if they are put in harm’s way. Another thing is that a dog will never complain when his owner would watch his favourite game on television for hours. The canine would just sit beside him and watch with him or at least would appear to watch. You wouldn’t expect a woman to do the same. Well, at least, not all the time.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if a person loves cats or is crazy over dogs. What’s more important is the love and companionship they share with their pets. Whether you are an introvert who has a Golden Retriever for a companion or an outgoing person who loves his Siamese cat, giving your love to your pet is what counts.
