This Map Shows If Your State Is A Cat State Or A Dog State


Turns out the answer to the “Cats vs. Dogs” debate isn’t a federal issue, but one that belongs to the states, clearly. And boy are the states divided on this one.

A survey by the American Veterinary Medical Association shows us which states are predominantly populated with dog people, or which ones have pussy on the mind…pussycat, that is, you filthy perverts. States in purple have more cat owners than dog owners, the orange states are for the dogs.

Actually, turns out that New York prefers cats, but just barely. It’s a completely minor differential. I guess it’s because Cats are easier pets to have in NYC Apartments, which is where most of the population of the state is located. Population Density. It’s a PGP.

Turns out, New England is firmly entrenched in Cat Country, but the South loves their dogs. And why not? They’re a man’s best friend, after all, and the South breeds REAL men. At least, that’s what the internet tells me. According to this map, the Southeast and the so-called “Bible Belt” have the most dogs.
