A survey performed by the Brooke Animal Charity found that 10 percent of women love their pet more than they love those with whom they are romantically involved.

The Telegraph reports that:

“Not only that, nearly four out of 10 women seek affection from their pet if they’re feeling ignored from their partner, and over half do so after an argument.”

Could the report really be proposing that women love their pets more than their spouse day in and out? Highly doubtful. It seems more likely that pets are the first place (faithful) women go looking when their man isn’t giving them quite enough attention.

A spokeswoman for the charity theorized:

“Perhaps a frustration for women is also that they expect less of their pets but are still rewarded with endless affection and loyalty.”

While it’s true that “pets can’t answer back with sarcastic comments or forget to put the toilet seat up,” which surely can’t be said of relationships with men – the wide array of sophisticated interactions with humans, although stressful, surely leads to a deeper emotional connection.

Nonetheless, the survey concluded with results showing that:

“81 percent of women thought of their pets as part of the family, with 38 percent thinking there would be a bitter custody battle over the animal if the couple were ever to split up.”

In light of the fact that experts have found domesticated animals to possess the emotional intelligence of toddlers, these statistics aren’t so surprising. Pets offer a type of emotional comfort that all humans, especially women, yearn for – and expect little to nothing in return.
