Guess what, Connecticut?
We’re officially a Cat State.
Yes, with apologies to those who prefer dogs to cats (personally, I’ll take both, or really anything furry and friendly please) statistics from market research firm Euromonitor, show that cats are far more prevalent here in Connecticut than dogs, and in fact, that’s seemingly the case for the entire nation.
Euromonitor’s numbers show that in terms of raw population, cats outnumber dogs to the tune of 2 million throughout the U.S., and if you really think about it in the simplest terms, it’s really due to both population density, and because cats do a hell of a lot better in apartments than dogs do. One certainly can’t just leave for like, 3 days with a dog and come back and expect the place to be clean and relatively tidy. Hell, if anything the dog will probably be dead.
But with a cat? Please. They’re completely self-sustainable.
Anyway, here’s the official breakdown below, and if you’d like to actually GeoLocate sweet kitties for yourself, you can do so after the jump.
