>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.
