I’m so happy to live in one of the few cat dominated states. This is Desmond, and he can attest to my fondness for felines:

Look at that smooshy little face!

Hi Jewel,

Love the cat v. dog dashboard. Any thought to finding data related to average number of sunny days and blending that in?

My thinking (in broad, overly generalized terms) is that Dogs are pets better suited for those who spend more time outdoors, Cats, pets better suited those who spend more time indoors.

My hypothesis is that dogs lead in states with higher average days of sun per year and that cats represent the opposite. And you could find a very high P-value to support this.

Your thoughts?
