Women find men less attractive when holding a cat

A new study found women find men less attractive if THEY’RE into cats.
Researchers at Colorado State University took photos of various men . . . one by themselves, and one of them holding a cat.
Then over 700 women rated the photos. And when men were holding cats, they were seen as less masculine AND less date-able.
It applied to both short-term and long-term relationship potential. So they were less date-able across the board. And they were seen as “more neurotic” when holding a cat.
There was one key demographic that didn’t care though. Women who described themselves as a “cat person” were just as likely to say a guy was date-able, whether he was holding a cat or not.
In other words, it didn’t hurt their chances with women who love cats. But it also didn’t help.
On the other hand, my roommate is using a picture of my cat, Kiwi, on his Bumble profile so we should test out this theory.
