I've four cats so liking them is essential!

Perhaps they should have used more conventionally attractive men in their study.

This is a great example of it aint what you do or what you are, it's the way that you do it or present it.

This test measured the number of right swipes per 100 women.
Also the photos were taken with a different body angle. The photos without the cat displayed the broadness of the model's shoulders better.

Also, if you're a cat owner and would like to date someone that's into cats it may well be in your interests to get fewer swipes. Because you want your profile to appeal to your target audience. You want it to be somewhat polarising to give yourself a greater chance of actually motivating someone to meet you.

It's like the Parkinson (of Parkinson's Law) approach to job recruitment. Where you'd word your job advert such that only 1 person would apply for the job. And that person would be ideally suited, making the interview process easier.

On Tinder there's a big difference between getting a woman to swipe right on you and getting her to meet you.

Also if you're a cat owner you could simply have a cat-free profile. And let her find out that you have a cat organically. For example when she visits your place. Or if she brings up the subject of pets.

Like most things in marketing the best approach is to test it by, in this example, having 2 profiles and seeing which gives you the better overall results.

You could also do a similar experiment with cars. Test profiles where you are sitting in an open top Ferrari vs sitting in a beat up old Land Rover Defender. Where you would be testing not only the quantity of responses, but the quality too.

Good points...

also I think by including a cat you're cutting off both 'tails' of the cat loving distribution.
women who hate cats aren't going to swipe a picture with a cat in it... but women who really love cats have probably already got a cat of their own and they're going to anticipate problems getting their cat to like your cat.

This. If she doesn't like my cat, there's no reason to even talk. I've friends, my cat and my right hand if things get hard.

Pun intended.

Also, thinking about this a bit more. As a general guideline what's attractive are traits and features that would have been attractive thousands or millions of years ago. When we were hunter gatherers.

So that a man with one cat is unattractive.

A man herding a large herd of cats would be attractive.

I'm sure LOADS of women would disagree. I love cats and it's attractive when men are caring towards cats too.

Also - who the hell would believe anything CNN says. Probably the most bs'ing news network to ever exist.

Honestly I think this is a very weird study as most studies of this kind tend to be.

I don't believe for a moment having a cat is a negative thing for most girls. Those who don't like cats, yeah but those are kinda rare. If the girl likes cats and men and ure a man with a cat, you're not at a disadvantage imo.

Men who believe that CNN is a reliable and unbiased news source also find it more difficult to get dates.

No, many girls will only date guys who prefer pet dogs or those who are open to having a canine pal.
