Are You A Cat or Dog Person?

The Cat Fanciers’ Association® (CFA) is asking cat owners to cast their vote to pronounce cats America’s most favored pet in the pet preference poll. Preliminary results indicate that dogs are leading the pack with 74%, while cats have 26% of the vote.

Pam DelaBar, President & CEO of the CFA is calling on approximately 88.3 million cat owners in the United States to wake up from their cat nap and vote. “Cat owners outnumber dogs by nearly 13 million among the pet-owning public,” said DelaBar. “What better way to share your love for your feline by casting your vote and giving cats the respect they deserve.”

Both dog and cat lovers have begun to voice their choices. One cat owners remarked that most cats are indoor, don’t have to be walked and don’t bark! While a dog-loving voter, on the other hand, argued that “Dogs never judge, are always happy to see you, give unconditional love, help the blind to walk and aid others with disabilities live productive lives.”
