>The gang at Movoto fetched the data and visualized how America’s favorite critters stack up in all 50 states. Spoiler alert: It’s looking ruff for cats.
Since the beginning of civilization as we know it, a great battle has raged on. It has crossed cultures, spanned centuries, divided people, and ruined families with a fierce animosity.
We’re talking, of course, about the question of which is more popular: cats or dogs.
Here at the Movoto Real Estate Blog, we think it’s high time to end this stupid battle: dogs are the more popular pet, hands down, no questions asked, final answer, period.
Now before you get all hissy, allow us to explain.
For this map, we went from state to state, noting the number of Facebook Likes for each of the five most popular pets: dogs, cats, fish, birds, and reptiles.
Overall, dogs were the most popular out of the five in every single state (that’s 50 points for dog people!), but we wanted to take a closer look at America’s pet preferences. After all, we love helping people find homes, but we love animals just as much.
It’s easy to argue that Guardians of the Galaxy is the year’s biggest movie. It has everything – a dashing leading man, a headstrong female character, the cutest loud-mouthed government experiment, a giant humanoid tree (duh), and a stellar soundtrack. This cast of characters is perfect for any number of Halloween costume combinations. With that our friends over at Halloweencostumes.com came up with a sexy fun costume along with what you need to put it all together
Strange sounds in old houses, unusual lights in the sky, the blur of a mysterious creature in the corner of your photograph… the unknown is certainly out there. Every state has its own legends, landmarks, and unexplained events, but which are the most interesting in each state?
Our friends over at Movoto Real Estate Blog, are kind of fond of the supernatural, and they were more than willing to answer that question. So with a little digging, they pinned down each state’s biggest, or at least most fascinating, paranormal claim to fame.
Feel free to explore their interactive map below that looks at these sorts of unusual bragging rights:

The story behind those oxygen masks
If the oxygen masks drop down, you only have about 15 minutes of oxygen from the point of pulling them down. However, that is more than enough time for the pilot to take the plane to a lower altitude where you can breathe normally. More important – at altitude, you have 15-20 seconds before you pass out. Put yours on first, then do your kids. Passing out for a few seconds won’t harm them.
When Walt was designing the Magic Kingdom for his new Florida park, he wanted an apartment right in the middle of the action. He already had an apartment above the fire station in Disneyland but for this new park he wanted something more grand. On the top floor or Cinderella’s Castle the Imagineers tucked in a small one bedroom apartment with beautiful views of the entire park. Sadly, Walt never had a chance to stay in this apartment and the space sat empty for decades. The apartment had long been talked about by Disney enthusiasts and some had even written it off as urban legend. But During the “Year of a Million Dreams” promotion, Disney finally gave the suite a proper makeover as Cinderellas suite and opened it up for lucky families to spend the night in.
The suite features a foyer, a royal bedchamber, a royal sitting room with a magic mirror that transforms into a TV, and a royal bath with special light effects in the jacuzzi tub and twinkling stars overhead. Any princess would be thrilled to lay her head down in this lavish pad.
