We all know the phrase ‘dogs are a man’s best friend’ but is this stereotype putting off would-be male cat owners?

New research released today (14 May 2019) by the charity Cats Protection shows that men who like dogs are still seen as more masculine than those who like cats, even though owning either pet requires the same compassionate qualities.

However the same survey found that three out of four cat-owning men surveyed saying their cat had a positive impact on their emotional wellbeing.

Aston spoke to comedian Jake Lambert about the findings and also about the charity cats protection.
