At first I laughed at this, but then I said, wait, this is actually really true!  If I see a guy with a cat, I’m like, Eh?  I don’t know if it’s because I am allergic to cats and I’m more of a dog person, but it’s pretty funny because for me it’s definitely true.  In fact I was kind of dating this guy who said he was getting a cat and it was definitely a turnoff.  Maybe this is why I’m single. HA!

Here are the details:

The study was carried out by Colorado State University, Yahoo Lifestyle reports. According to the news outlet, 1,380 women between the ages of 18-24 were shown photographs of the same man. The pictures were basically the same image, except one showed him holding a tabby cat and the other did not.

The women were asked to rate the man on various attributes, like personality, masculinity and date-ability.

The survey results reportedly found that women found the man holding the cat to be less masculine and less date-able.
