America’s top pet

Tuesday, August 30, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

Dogs or cats, what do you think?  What is the number one most popular pet in America?  The answer depends on how you count and of course who you ask.  About 37% of American households have a dog and 32% of households have a cat. .or two…or more. Maybe you’re starting to see the trend. The average dog owning household has 1.7 dogs. This adds up to about 70 million dogs nationwide.  There are 2.2 cats on the average in cat owning households. This adds up to over 80 million cats. Some people think that it’s no contest because they have both kinds of pets.  So I may say that cat lovers believe that cats are America’s top pet and dog lovers say that dogs are the top pet. Whatever – keeping pampering those wonderful pets with lots of cat and dog treats, toys and love. Remember, your pets count!
