If you’re a pet owner you’re likely to be more satisfied with life, according to a new study revealed by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology Convention in San Diego this weekend (30/31st January).
The study, which was conducted by Katherine Jacobs Bao at Manhattanville College in New York, uncovered that pet owners are more satisfied with life than non-owners.
But when comparing dog owners to cat owners said: ‘Dog owners were higher in well-being, more conscientious, less neurotic, and marginally more extroverted and agreeable than cat owners.’
