PEOPLE & THEIR PETS… Oh, how we love them!

Dogs –VS- Cats

If you ask most people, they proudly associate with either dogs or cats. An article from cbsnews.com laid out a difference in personality traits pretty clearly.

Those who said they were dog lovers, in a study done by CBS, said they tended to be more lively – meaning they were more energetic and outgoing. These folks also tended to follow the rules pretty closely.

Cat lovers, on the other hand, stated they were more introverted, more open-minded and more sensitive than dog lovers. Cat people also tended to be non-conformists, preferring to be expedient rather than following the rules.

In general pets can raise happiness levels (proven fact!), lower blood pressure and decrease stress levels. Let’s face it, who else in the world ALWAYS gives you a warm greeting when walking in the door after a long day … can’t always count on that from your spouse or kids!

We celebrate all pets at Gypsy Mint. Our Play, Cat’s Meow, Dog Day and even our Bird stencils are a tribute to these fine creatures. We are proud to donate 10% of our proceeds from the sale of these stencils to a Minneapolis based animal rescue organization, Secondhand Hounds. This wonderful group of people provide safe shelter, proper veterinary care and daily necessities for animals at risk, while working hard to find each a permanent, loving home.
