According to a recent survey by Petsies when participants were shown pictures of men holding dogs & cats, the results varied greatly! The surveyed revealed men who were holding puppies were rated as nearly 24 percent sexier relative to every other man, as well as 14 percent more trustworthy, and 13 percent more attractive. Men holding cats only gained 3%-5% increase in hotness! Clearly, dogs rule! Maybe this is the key to dating success? By the way, photos of women holding cats were generally seen as “scary” by guys! Probably because of the “crazy cat lady” stereotype.
