Researchers recently had people judge how attractive strangers were by looking at pictures of them with different pets.  And having a dog makes you seem much sexier than having a cat.

The sexiest pet to have if you’re a man is a puppy.  According to the survey, people thought guys were 24% sexier when they were holding a puppy, 14% more trustworthy, 7% smarter and 14% more attractive overall.

Cats only made guys 5% sexier.  Kittens had even less of an effect, at 4%.

Once that puppy grows up, it won’t have much of an effect though.  Small and medium dogs only made guys 3% sexier, and large dogs only gave them a 2% boost.  But overall, guys were seen as slightly more attractive with dogs than cats.

If you’re a woman, the sexiest pet to have is a medium-sized dog.  They made women seem 7% sexier, 7% more trustworthy, 6% smarter and 7% more attractive overall.

Posing with a cat actually made women slightly less sexy, and kittens basically had no effect.  Puppies gave women a 3% boost in sexiness, small dogs, 4% and large dogs, 3%.
