It’s National Pet Week, Are You A Dog Or Cat Person? [POLL]
This week is National Pet Week, which happens to coincide with “Be Kind To Animals” week. Our family has a cat, which you’ve probably heard me complain about periodically. Cathy’s family has two dogs, one being a brand new puppy. (You’ve probably heard her complain about the puppy too.) But we both love our pets, and wanted to take a poll of our listeners and to see if we have more “cat people” or “dog people.
First a few surprising facts:
83 Million homes had pets last year.
It’s estimated that Americans spend $55.53 billion dollars on pets.
Nationally, 70% of Americans consider themselves “dog people”, and only 20% were “cat people.”
However, there were 74 million cats in the US in 2012, compared to onlyl 70 million pet dogs.
