She may be short in stature, but Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is not lacking in personality – or in loyalty to her pets.

In an interview last Monday with Sirius XM radio's The Morning Mash Up, the Jersey Shore star talked about her dog, Gia, and three cats – Rocky, Tommy and Vito.

"I've had bed luck with guys because I'm obsessed with my cat," Snooki said. "My cat is like my best friend."

The close relationship she shares with her pets isn't necessarily the issue, however. "The last three boyfriends that I've had are allergic," she continued. "The guy I'm dating now is actually highly allergic, so he can't even come over and play with my cats."

When one of the hosts asked her hypothetically whether she would choose her cats over a boyfriend – which most pet owners are not inclined to do – Snooki couldn't say at first. But, when pressed, she made her decision.

"You'd choose a cat over a man?" asked host Rich Davis.

"Of course," Snooki replied. "I mean, [the boyfriend] will always be around. You never know when my cat's going to die."
