Dogs and Cats

Which do you prefer?
In Japan, there is a tendency that females like cats and males like dogs.
Of course, there is many exceptions, but men usually enjoy going outside with their dogs, whereas women love spending time with their cats at home.
I guess that it is one of our bequests from ancestors.
In the old era, males were hunters and females were herbalists.
Therefore, the formers loved exploring far and needed companion animals to support his travel.
In contrast, the latter needed companions which eased the stress at home.
This is just a fantasy because I don't have any evidence, but I believe that it is not so far from the truth.
