Does Your Sweetheart Like Dogs or Cats?

3. November 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

In a recent compatibility survey, we asked the members of HotRussianBrides, both male and female, about their pet preferences. The choices were dog, cat, fish, turtle, lizard, bird, hamster/mouse, other, and I don't like pets. Here's what we learned.


Cats and Dogs Most Popular

It seems dog really is a man’s best friend. The majority of men we surveyed, 67%, prefer dogs as pets. The ladies like dogs as well, but only 42% of the women prefer canines above all other animals. When it comes to cats, another 42% of the ladies prefer felines while a mere 19% of men feel the same way. Overall, 84% of the women and 86% of the men prefer either a dog or a cat as a pet.


Not Everyone is a Cat or Dog Person

While a large majority of members prefer dogs or cats, not everyone wants a cute kitty or an adorable doggy. Here’s how other animals fared in the pet preference survey:

•    Fish preferred by 4% of men and 6% of women
•    Other preferred by 4% of men and 3% of women
•    Birds preferred by 2% of men and 2% of women
•    Turtles preferred by 0.1% of men and 2% of women
•    Hamsters/mice preferred by 0.1% of men and 2% of women
•    Lizards preferred by no man we surveyed and 1.7% of women
•    4.3% of men don’t like pets at all, while 0.7% of women felt the same way.



Several of the men on HotRussianBrides and RussianLoveMatch think of themselves as animal lovers, and a few even have pictures of pets on their profile. Don't be afraid to ask these men about their pets or share your own special animal story. Include photos! Chatting about pets is a fun and easy way to strike up a conversation with a special gentleman and build the beginnings of a relationship.
