A new study found that cat owners scored more highly on an intelligence test than dog owners.

According to the research, cat and dog owners have different personalities.

Dogs lovers are energetic whereas cat lovers are sensitive, introverted and open-minded.

According to Professor Denise Guastello the reason of the difference in nature is the different needs of the two animals.

Guastello said: "It makes sense that a dog person is going to be more lively, because they’re going to want to be out there, outside, talking to people, bringing their dog."

The different types of environment the cat and dogs owners are drawn to is the reason for this.

Cat owner's also scored higher on intelligence tests.

"Cat people are more likely to possess university degrees than dog owners. Educated people tend to work longer hours and opt for pets that compliment their personal circumstances and lifestyle."
