PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Animal lovers will be appalled.

One in five people would rather be parted from their pet for a month than give up their smartphone for the same amount of time.

Of course, we already know that most women would prefer their smartphone over sex, but giving up quality time with your favorite animal? Now that’s truly shocking.
