Meet the people who look just like their pets

A study, commissioned by pet well-being website ITCHpet.com, has found that we are actually more likely to choose pets that we feel look like us.

Whether it’s in colouring the texture of their hair, their posture, or even a certain expression owners looking just like their cat or dog is surprisingly common. And apparently there’s a scientific reason for that.

According to the data, around one in six males (16%) feel their dog or cat has similar eyes to them, with one in ten believing they have the same nose shape or ears as their pet.

According to metro.co.uk, Professor Peter Neville animal behaviourist said ‘There is a comfort in seeing yourself look back at you. It’s kind of like a mutual dependency,’

‘The dog is dependent on you anyway and doesn’t really care what you look like. But if you see aspects of your own image you feel more comfortable. There are two of you against the world. 

‘I think in the broadest sense of family it’s about identification, projecting a common image, there’s more than one of me. Because my dog looks similar to me, you can’t mistake me, if you think about me, you think about my dog too.’
