Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

U.T. researcher studies difference between 'Dog People', 'Cat People' | kvue.com | Local News: "Sam Gosling, a professor at the University of Texas, gave personality tests to more than 4,000 people. Gosling found those who called themselves dog people were more extroverted, more agreeable, and more conscientious. Self-described cat people were more neurotic, but they were also more open."

Reading this in 2016, I am a cat-loving person (from childhood), and also a dog-loving person (from my early teenage years).

There are differences, dogs require attention and need walks and exercise

... though each type of pet, either cat, bird, or puppy dog, does respond with loyalty and concern for the owner each in their own way.

Having said that, we are the source of fresh water, walks, and food - so they do show the owner -some- loyalty!
