Study finds these type of pet owners are more likely to cheat

Watch out for cat owners then.

A new study has found that some pet owners are more likely to cheat than others, according to their type of pet.

A dating website IllicitEncounters, which provides a service for married people, has conducted research and found that cat owners are more likely to cheat than any other pet owners. Next on the list are goldfish owners, followed by other/no pet, hamster/gerbil, rabbit, reptile and then last on the list are dog owners.

They based their findings on the percentage of people on their site that owned each type of pet and cat owners came out on top. As strange as it sounds, they are suggesting that it's the attitude and personalities of the pets that reflect what type of owner they are.

A spokesperson for the site, Christian Grant told Metro, "There has already been a plethora of scientific studies that claim that owning a dog, or dogs, makes you happier and healthier, and now you can add loyalty to that list."

"Man’s best friend is the UK’s most popular pet, and has been for a very long time, but not among this particular community it seems."

He explained further, "By the same token, a cat’s loyalty is a little more unclear. Often lazy, they’ve been known to drift to whoever is offering them more food, so it’s of little surprise to see that lack of loyalty reflected in our study."

You'll have to take these findings with a pinch of salt.
