In politics, most people tend to think of their states as either a red (Republican) or a blue (Democrat) state. Yet this division of states can also apply to which states prefer cats and which states prefer dogs.
Southern states tend to be more dog-friendly than Northern states, which tend to prefer cats.
Massachusetts is the biggest feline state with nearly 2 times more cats than dogs while Arkansas ranks No. 1 in ratio of dogs to cats. Nationwide, though, cats outrank dogs 74 million to 70 million.
Curiously, many homes offer built-in features for dogs such as kennels and washing stations while fewer houses offer built-in amenities for cats. To learn more interesting facts about dog and cat ownership from a real estate perspective, click here.
