The survey shows that dog owners are about twice as likely as cat owners to say that they are very happy.
For starters, there is little difference between pet owners and non-owners when it comes to happiness.
When you break the data down by type-cats, dogs or both-a stunning divide emerges. Dog owners are about twice as likely as cat owners to say they're very happy, with people owning both falling somewhere in between.
Dog people, in other words are slightly happier than those without any pets. Those in the cat camp, on the other hand, are significantly less happy than the petless.
