A very cool survey was done by the American Veterinary Association that looked at the preference of dogs or cats in the U.S. and around the world. This was done by observing how many cats and dogs were owned in each state and country. Many countries had predominant preferences, South American being mostly dog owners and the Middle East being most cat owners. The United States proved to slightly favor the canines, but overall seemed pretty equal. Here are the results for the states that boasted the most predominately dog or cat households, broken down by Washington Post:
|Rank||State||Cats||Dogs||Ratio, dogs to cats|
|Rank||State||Cats||Dogs||Ratio, cats to dogs|
|6||District of Columbia||63,000||42,000||1.50|
So, is your state a cat state or a dog state?
