When asked if they'd rather kiss their four legged friend or their two-legged sweetie, 60% of women (uh, that's the majority) answered... their pet! Meanwhile, 62% of the men said they'd rather kiss their partner. (Poor men. Do you think they answered truthfully, or were they just afraid their wives would find out what they said?)
As for gifts, 76% of respondents said they plan to buy their pet a present. Again, men kinda end up getting the short end of the stick here, since 52% of women admitted they spend more on the dog/cat than their partner, while 70% of men said they spend more on their partners. Bummer, dudes.
I thought these results were pretty amusing, since in my novel Rescue Me, Maybe the main character, Jane, secretly loved her dog more than her hubby. She definitely would have rather kissed the dog than the hubs.
How about you? Okay, I won't ask if you'd rather kiss your pet or your partner..., but are you planning to get your pet a V. Day gift?
If so, Petplan created Eat, Play, Love: A Gift Guide for Furry Friends - check it out for some ideas for your pets!
Shhhh.... Okay, this is one last bit of mischief... but Rita's not getting any V. Day presents! Poor deprived girl! (Of course, I'm not getting any either, and neither is the hubs, but I think we'll all survive!)
Note: We were not compensated for this post about the Petplan survey or gift guide. We just thought it was fun and wanted to share.
