Are you a dog person or a cat person? Not sure? Well, these hilarious tweets might help you make up your mind!

The world is filled with lots of people and the people are filled with lots of differences! There are morning people and then there are night people, there are people who are vegetarians, and on the other hand, we have meat lovers. It’s an endless loop! But you know what, that’s the beauty of diversity! Regardless of all those differences, we are still living together peacefully. But while we are talking about differences, how can we ever forget cat people and dog people who are mostly up for a quarrel. It’s not like all people has a preference for either of them, some people would prefer keeping both because they know, whether it’s a dog or a cat, both are incredibly adorable and can make your life 10000000x happier!

However, in the midst of these dog vs cat people, some hoomans are just too confused about who’s side are they actually on and which one of these animals do they prefer. It’s really okay to be indecisive because there’s absolutely no need for comparison between cats and dogs as each one has its own unique abilities but one thing that remains constant and mutual is the cuteness! Anyways, today, we have brought some of the most hilarious AF tweets for you of cats vs dog people! We suggest you get comfy in your couch and grab popcorns as the sh*t’s about to get real! Scroll down to have one of the best laughs of your life;

1. The truth has been spoken!


2. Well, that’s one positive way to look at things.


3. Dog people can be arrogant.


4. You know nothing, Dog person!


So, a lot of people have been debating about the differences between a cat and a dog and one thing is understandable that they do have a few personality traits but it doesn’t just end there because there’s more to it.

So, we decided to ask Molly De Voss who happens to be a certified feline behaviorist who has a vision to reduce the numbers of cats that are euthanized into the shelters. Upon asking about the difference between a cat and a dog, Molly said that in her personal observations, dog people “tend to be more ‘outdoorsy’ than cat people,” but she added: “that said, I like to hike—with my cat, of course.”

5. Everything apart, how can you just not like a DOG!? Ugh…


6. Don’t gotta go so deep, right?


7. That’s one benefit, I agree.


Moreover, “more women tend to own cats than men—partly because cats are seen as feminine and dogs more masculine; and partly because cats gravitate to women more because their voices are in a megahertz range similar to their meows.”

The feline behaviorist also noticed stronger feelings about cats since “more people (usually men) really dislike cats than they do dogs.”

“I think that may limit a single woman’s opportunities in the dating pool—especially if she has multiple cats. However, I have several male cat-owning clients who are neither gay, nor neurotic so obviously, there’s no 100% stereotype that fits all,” Molly concluded.

8. EXACTLY what we thought.


9. Yes, because cats are our Gods.


10. Do as the villagers do.


11. Because they are the boss, period.


To have another scientific perspective about this, we reached to Beatrice Alba who’s a lecturer in psychology at Deakin University and the co-author of a 2015 study on how dog people and cat people differ on dominance-related traits.

So, according to Beatrice, the bigger differences seem to be between people who self-identify as a “cat person” vs a “dog person.” “But, of course, you don’t have to choose between the two—plenty of people identify as both or neither. Having said that, although we found statistically significant differences between cat people and dog people on some psychological measures, the size of the effects were not huge.”

12. Hmmm… No offense to dog owners but well, that’s a fact.


13. Yep, that’s our favorite kind of people! Who love both the animals!


14. Cat people got no chill.


15. Yep, because they work alone and solve the cases themselves.


Beatrice’s study found that “dog people scored significantly higher than cat people on competitiveness, and a characteristic called Social Dominance Orientation. This is essentially a preference for hierarchy and the belief that some groups of people should dominate other groups of people.”

As a result, the creators of the study argued that “people prefer pets that complement their own personalities, so someone more inclined towards characteristics related to social dominance should prefer a more submissive pet, like dogs.”

Meanwhile, “Those who are not so attached to hierarchies and ranking highly within them may be more inclined to like cats, who we all know defer to no one,” Beatrice concluded.

16. No, that’s not entirely true! I condemn this.


17. Damn, you’ve got one unique cat!


18. We simply don’t own cats, they own us!


Another recent study conducted by the psychologist Samuel D. Gosling and his colleagues at the University of Texas in Austin, in which 4,565 individuals were asked whether they were dog people, cat people, neither, or both, shed some light on these questions.

Gosling summarized his results, saying, “There is a widely held cultural belief that the pet species—dog or cat—with which a person has the strongest affinity says something about the individual’s personality, and this research suggests there are significant differences on major personality traits between dog people and cat people.”

19. Sounds a bit over exaggerated, doesn’t it? Or could be true.


20. Yep, that is something they both can agree on.


21. That’s a bold statement and also the truth!


Gosling’s research showed that dog people were generally 15% more extroverted, 13% more agreeable, and 11% more conscientious than cat people. The same research showed that cat people were 11% more open-minded than dog people.

22. Exactly. Some people just don’t know what it feels like to have a cat!


23. So, who’s more powerful? Do the maths.


24. You arrogant people!


Stanley Coren surveyed 6,149 people, aged 16 to 94. It included 3,362 dog owners and 1,223 cat owners, and the rest were people who had neither of them. “My results showed that people who owned only cats seemed to be somewhat different than dog owners, or people who owned both dogs and cats, in terms of their personalities. People who own both dogs and cats seem to be much like the people who own only dogs,” Stanley explained for Psychology Today.

His findings showed that cat owners “were one-third more likely to live alone than dog owners and twice as likely to live in an apartment or flat,” while dog owners were more likely “married, living in a house, and having children living in the home.”

25. Cats are much more than that but … okay.


26. Cat owners, can you relate to this?


27. But still it owns me anyway.


When it comes to personalities, Stanley found that “people who own only cats tend to be relatively introverted (low on extroversion) and also reasonably cool (low in warmth or agreeableness).”

The author of the study explained further: “The general pattern that comes out of both studies is that dog owners are more social and interactive and cat owners (who own cats exclusively) are more introverted and self-contained.”

On the other hand, it wouldn’t be right to generalize these findings and claim that they represent the full picture. Keep in mind that the dog and cat owners that were surveyed for studies represent only a fraction of society, and that any claims should be taken with a grain of salt.

28. Yeah and you just think about yourself only, don’t you, hooman?


29. Ouch. Nothing can heal that wound.


30. Haha OMG, that is so true!


31. Because cat has the most luxurious lives plus they are always the boss.


32. Damn… why didn’t we think of that before?


33. But dogs would still protect you with their lives.


34. Cold. Cold people.


35. Ahem… well… everyone can get stuck into situations, right?


36. That’s the main beauty of a cat!


37. You just have to know the colour, that’s all that matters.


38. Cold fu*kers!


39. Because one cannot simply choose between a cat and a dog.


40. Now that’s what you call a political statement.


So, the cats vs dog roasting session comes to an end. We would like to know what did you think of it? We hope that you enjoyed every bit of it and regardless of whose side are you on, both animals are adorable and have their own qualities which is exactly why they are the most popular animals and pets all across the world. Don’t forget to share these tweets with your friends and family so that they can have a good laugh too!
