Facebook has analysed the behaviours and preferences of some 160,000 people who’ve posted photos of cats and dogs, at once both confirming and busting several prevailing pet myths. For instance:

*Cat owners have 26 fewer Facebook friends than their canine-loving counterparts, yet are more likely to be invited to events.


*Cat people are especially fond of fantasy, sci-fi, and animé, while dog people like love stories and tales about, well, dogs.


*Cat people tend to post more frequently about being “tired” and “lonely”, but also feeling “happy” and “loved”.


* Dog people, meanwhile, seem more stimulated, using words like “fabulous”, “proud”, and “excited”. Equally likely for both … “heartbroken”.
