To absolutely no one’s surprise, the latest research indicates that dogs love you five times more than your cat. US neuroscientist Paul Zak took saliva samples from 10 cats and 10 dogs prior to a 10-minute playtime session with their owners.

He then took another saliva sample from all of the participants after their playtime encounter, testing it for the presence of oxytocin known as the love or bonding hormone. The results showed a 57.2 percent oxytocin increase in dogs while only 12 percent increase of the hormone was found in cats.

In other words, your cat doesn’t care about you as much as a dog might. If this is news to you, then you might also like to know that water is wet, fire is hot, and gravity makes things fall tot he ground.
