A new study shows that dogs love their owners FIVE times more than cats do.
it all comes down to a chemical present in the brain called oxytocin AKA the "love hormone". Oxytocin is released during times of bonding.
Scientists decided to see how this “love hormone” affects the pet-owner relationship by testing the oxytocin levels of cats and dogs before and after they saw their owners.
Both pets showed an increase of the good stuff after seeing their favorite human, but dogs showed a much bigger boost in oxytocin. They had a 57.2 percent increase in oxytocin levels after interacting with owners, while the cats only clocked an average increase of 12 percent.
