    I had the impression so far that pets are at all more a thing for I-types in general. I never wanted a pet but I came in touch with them quite early in life, since my ISFJ mom liked them. Our family had a budgie when I was young and I liked him. You could stand with him on the balcony and he would be sitting on your shoulder not flieing away. Quite amazing nice little pet. After the budgie we had guinea pigs. They were cute and fluffy but far too shy to be ever taken out of the cage. We let them stroll thru the garden mowing the turf that was quite funny, but guine pigs werent really my thing.

    Now with my girlfriend we have a cat. My girlfriend grew up in a more rural area and she had two cats, two turtles, a lot of rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, so a lot of animals already. She's INFP and always talked to me about how gladly she would like to have a cat again. So I went out that one day and bought a male cat, british short hair, color creme. A very beautiful cat with a good character, very stress-resistent so really good for kids. I like that cat too since it bonds me and my gf but I can safely say if I should ever part with my gf for some reason I hope never happens, I wont buy an animal on my own again.

    That´s what I thought as well. But it´s really hard to generalize. I grew up with a dog. My Dad (divorced parents) used to say that cat people are uncapable of forming relationships and dogs were the thing. Years later he decided that cat people value character and independence and dog people were sickos with a need to dominate. Again several years later, he now lives with both cats and dogs and loves them all. He´s INFJ, for your statistics. My mother (ENTP) is a definite dog person. So is my brother (ENTJ), not sure about my ISFP sister, but my guess is dogs.

    I´m the only cat person in the rest of the family and currently share my apartment with Holmes and Watson, two beautiful - and rather social- cats.

    I'm not an extreme animal lover but I have a cat and a rabbit. Throughout my childhood and now in my teens I have a cat. Unfortunately my first one died. Got a rabbit after that but missed having a cat around, so I got that too.

    Definite dog person but I like cats, too. I'm aloof enough myself with people. I like having something that's cute and excited and cuddly and will snuggle up by me on the sofa, and is happy to see me when I get home. Cats are too aloof for me. My dog can be aloof at times, but she will always tolerate my scooping her up and smooching her. I'm just a sucker for dogs.

    I have a dog and a cat, but my cat is antisocial so I like my dog more. Sometimes when I am sad I go and sit and talk to my dog and she makes me happier.

    I honestly like anything cute, furry, and cuddly that you can interact with whether it is a dog, cat, or husband. I'm thinking of getting a cat (my life doesn't quite have the resources needed for a dog).

    There were some studies that animals significantly help mental health. In fact, several dorms and halls at MIT were designated cat-friendly halls for exactly this reason.

    TJ with a cat, my third one. Would love to have a dog but my cat would have a heart attack.

    Have had two other cats, two guinea pigs, one hamster, turtles and snakes.

    I'm a wild animal documentary freak.

    I'm not sure which I prefer, I've always owned cats but always wanted a dog - just not in a good environment for one yet. Someday I'd like to have both, I think. I like most furry things, though I don't really like the cage-living things, they're a bit personality-free for me.

    My isfp is a definite cat person, though I might be able to convince him grudgingly to let us have a dog someday.

    I think it might have more to do with upbringing. I was always around cats and the nieghbour's dogs, and my bf always had cats.

    Cats .. I wouldn't get a dog as i'd have to walk it.

    Although if someone could genetically modify a puppy labrador that behaved like an adult then i'd have one of them. No drooling though .. My cat does enough of that.
