It’s no secret that Americans love their furry family members, but a new survey shows just how much: 50% of the 2,000 respondents to a poll consider their pet their soulmate.
The survey, which was commissioned by pet supply company Zesty Paws in honor of National Pet Month, also revealed 72% believe their pets know exactly what they’re feeling — but that may be because 45% say they tell their pets their deepest secrets.
And while 37% of the animal lovers polled say they believe their astrological signs reflect their personalities, 28% believe that applies to their pets’ zodiac signs, as well.
Seventy-one percent of animal owners say they know when their humans feel upset; 58% when you’re angry, 61% when you’re happy and 43% when you’re tired — though that’s probably not true for puppy owners.
