Pets Better Listeners than Spouses

Posted On: May 6, 2010

According to an Associated poll released, a third of pet-owning married women said their pets are better listeners than their husbands. Eighteen percent of pet-owning married men said their pets are better listeners than their wives.

When pets become the therapists, the dogs have it. Twenty-five percent of dog owners said their canines listened better than a spouse, while only 14 percent of cat owners chose the feline. Overall, about one in 10 pet owners said they would talk their troubles over with their pets.

The Poll was conducted April 7-12, 2010, and involved landline and cell phone interviews with 1,112 pet owners nationwide. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

I have no doubt that pets are likely to pick up on the general mood of the owner, even essence of a conversation without a single word exchange. However the lack of comprehension would still bug me.
