You know what they say about pets looking like their owner?
Well the same rule kinda applies when it comes to personalities.
And it makes sense when you really think about it.
You choose a particular animal and breed based on your personality traits.
Right down to the colours and behaviour of an animal, these are all subjective and pre-conceived notions you determine subconsciously.
And this process happens so suddenly, so quickly, you don’t even knows when or why it occurs.
Below we have come up with a few reasons why different types of people are drawn to particular animals.
If you own a dog it is safe to say that you’re pretty mainstream. You have lot of time on your hand and pretty much crave love, affection and attention 24/7.
Regardless of the breed you own, your dog is better than every other dog in the universe, and you aren’t afraid to say this to everybody you meet.
But there’s nothing wrong with a bit of boasting and some healthy competition, right?
Your dog comes first, above anybody else. Which means you low-key just have trust issues with the human race.
You’re super busy and just wanted a pet that is cute, furry and cuddly but one that doesn’t require too much work. And you’re a genius.
All geniuses own cats, because what other pet fits into their super busy work schedule? Y
You hate taking care of pets, which makes sense because cats pretty much roam around, entertain and clean themselves.
And you don’t like to be too mainstream. Everybody has a dog, so why would you want to own one of those?
People who own cats also tend to be more introverted, quiet and calm.
You want a pet, but can’t be bothered actually looking after a pet. This doesn’t mean you’re lazy but you might just have other priorities in life.
Like a social life? Or work obligations? Or hobbies and activities?
If you own a fish, you’re just a super busy person who likes the idea of having a pet, but doesn’t have the time or finances to do so.
You just think they’re cute. Your friends and family all own dogs and cats, but you’re not about that life. So you bought yourself a rabbit. Nuff said. Bunny off.
You have real respect for nature and being outdoors. You probably like hiking, or if thats too physically demanding for you, you enjoy long strolls in the park.
You know your birds quite well, and can tell the difference between different types of breeds just by looking at them. Or by hearing them chirp.
You have a spacious home, and are generally a very patient, and introverted person.
You probably live on a farm and want to show city people just how cool country people can be.
You’ve been riding horses since you were old enough to walk.
And while everybody at school wanted the new Tamagochi, all you ever wanted was a pony. Literally. And not My Little Pony, but like a real one.
Horse owners are very placid and calm, but also super competitive.
You’ve watched Stuart Little a million times and think that owning a mouse is the coolest thing in the world.
You are definitely the loud, extravert in your group who does random things like booking spontaneous getaways. Or leaving the house to buy milk and coming back with a mouse.
And you probably got tired of hearing people say you “eat like a mouse” and decided to screw everyone, and just buy one.
You are just a super random person.
You love watching the National Geographic channel and are obsessed with all things lizards. You even had a t-shirt made saying “I Love Lizards”.
You have a really quirky personality, love nature and adore being outdoors. And you are a real simple, quiet person, with a very colourful personality.
Just like your pet lizard.
You generally just find hamsters cute. Hamsters are really introverted and are happy living in solitude and quiet. So you thought they would be a good low maintenance pet to look after.
You love kittens, but not cats, so that was immediately ruled out.
And the next best pet to fit into your busy social schedule was a hamster.
You love the “aw cute” response you get when you tell people you own a hamster, and generally love owning a pet that doesn’t take up a large portion of your life.
And it’s cute, small and super fluffy. So what’s not too love?
