    Often, animal lovers prefer being in the company of animals over humans. Why do you think they do?

    I think it might be because animal lovers find it easier to be with animals. Animals don't make judgements like people.

    Animals love you unconditionally, without judgement and don't share opinions of what or how to do anything. They just want to have your attention.

    Unconditional love. That and some of us feel like most people simply don't understand us. Animals don't really care if you're socially awkward or whatever.

    Because animal lovers who take their love to that exttent tend to be overweening.

    Some people prefer animals as they have been let down so badly through life and find love in their animals whether it is a household pet ot a farm animal.
    Animals don't judge you, they love you unconditionally and reward you with their loyalty.

    I find a fair amount of animal lovers, that I know personally, are introverted people. I am introvert and its not that I don't like people, I find people tiring. Animals don't give that effect. I prefer my various animals for company most often than not.

    I love animals, especially dogs, but I can't say I prefer their company to human companionship.  I can tell you do not like to be around people who do not like dogs--those people make me uncomfortable! Weird but true.

    then it must be true. unconditional love being the reason as almost all of you have stated. thank you for your responses, each one of you.

    They have probably gotten accustomed to being alone than operating in group dynamics.  Animals are basic - they feel love and live on instinct.  Frequently, animals can identify humans who respect them, responding with affection and loyalty.  Humans can be extremely complicated.  There is the issue of prejudice and materialism.  In company, it is often necessary to know what to say or do at the right moment.  Some people are just not up to it.  Animals provide a social option with less complications, but this is not a complete solution.

    For me, there are several reasons, primarily because my pets love me unconditionally.  It does not matter to them what is going on in the outside world, all they want is my love and attention...and food and water, of course, lol!  Honestly though, I can't say I prefer their company over my husband's, but we enjoy being at home, just us and our 3 rescued pups!

    Because they don't talk to them.

    More people than ever choose to live on their own,having a dog or cat is company and they don't make judgements on owners!
