Here’s Proof That Being A Cat Lover May Improve Your Chances At A Happily Ever After

Cats Protection conducted an interesting survey that gave some insight into finding partners with pets.

As it turns out, survey takers felt that it was more important for a partner to be feline-friendly than to have a nice car or own their own place.

Of the 1,000 participants, 25.7% said that it was either “important” or “very important” for a partner to be a cat lover (with another 25% staying neutral). Only 15.6% of people felt that owning a nice car was a priority, and an even 25% thought it essential for a significant other to have their own home. Of these three survey questions, a liking for cats came out on top!

Additionally, a love for pets, in general, was certainly an endearing trait for survey takers. When asked, “Would you be more inclined to date someone for a longer period of time if you had a close relationship with their pet?” 39.2% said either “yes” or “maybe.” But perhaps the most telling results came after the question: “Do you feel that having a pet can enhance your relationships with partners/family?” 60.5% answered positively.
