Do Women Prefer Pets to Men?

Are Pet's Cuter? More Affectionate?

A recent survey completed by the mega-internet shopping site, Shopzilla, asked people about their relationships with their pets.

According the survey, 56% of women pet owners surveyed felt their pets were more affectionate than their partners. And 45% said their pets were cuter!

On the other hand, men found only 24% of their pets cuter and 41% found their pets more affectionate than their significant others.

According to the latest statistics from the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association (APPMA), pet ownership is currently at its highest level. They estimate that 63 percent of all U.S. households own a pet which equates to more than 69 million households.

According to the APPMA survey that tracks hundreds of pet ownership trends, Americans own approximately 73 million dogs, 90 million cats, 139 million freshwater fish, 9 million saltwater fish, 16 million birds, 18 million small animals and 11 million reptiles.
