First, we’ll start with domestic animals. Dogs are symbols of loyalty. If you are a dog person, chances are that you value honor and devotion above all. Cat people are strong and fearless, taking great joy in the right to be independent. Indeed, a recent study from Carroll University indicated that “cat people” were more likely to be non-conformists, more sensitive, and also more intelligent than dog owners. However, many people own both dogs and cats, and it is easy to see how the traits of these pets complement one another, although popular culture would have us believe otherwise!
