Is Your Russian Bride a Dog Person or a Cat Person?

14. October 2010 by Christy 0 Comments

We recently surveyed over 3,000 men and women on HotRussianBrides.com in an effort to help our members better understand one another. One fun question we included in the survey is “which animal do you prefer as a pet?”.  We listed nine choices ranging from the ever popular cat and dog to the more exotic lizard and turtle. Here’s how our members responded.  


Dogs and Cats a Big Favorite!

It seems dog really is a man’s best friend. The majority of men we surveyed, 67%, prefer dogs as pets. The ladies like dogs as well, but only 42% of the women prefer canines above all other animals. When it comes to cats, another 42% of the ladies prefer felines while a mere 19% of men feel the same way. Overall, 84% of the women and 86% of the men prefer either a dog or a cat as a pet.


But Dogs and Cats Aren't For Everyone

While a large majority of members prefer dogs or cats, not everyone wants a cute kitty or an adorable doggy. Here’s how other animals fared in the pet preference survey:

•    Fish preferred by 4% of men and 6% of women
•    Other preferred by 4% of men and 3% of women
•    Birds preferred by 2% of men and 2% of women
•    Turtles preferred by 0.1% of men and 2% of women
•    Hamsters/mice preferred by 0.1% of men and 2% of women
•    Lizards preferred by no man we surveyed and 1.7% of women
•    4.3% of men don’t like pets at all, while 0.7% of women felt the same way.


Many of the women on HotRussianBrides describe themselves as animal lovers and pose with pets in profile photos.  If you want to get a conversation started, ask these ladies about their pets and share stories about your own. Don’t be afraid to send adorable photos as well! Chatting about pets is a fun and easy way to strike up a conversation with a special lady and build the beginnings of a relationship.
