A website called Hunch.com polled over 200,000 pet owners to find out if they were cat people or dog people.  And they also asked a bunch of weird questions to find out how they’re different.

It turns out they have a few things in common:  They both tend to talk to animals, including cats AND dogs.  They’re both just as likely to have a college degree.  And they both hate shirts and sweaters that have pictures of animals on them.  (Did you hear that Maria?)
