Cat Owners Are More Educated Than Dog Owners

Here's a study that will surely pour more gasoline into the debate of dog vs cat: turns out that cat owners are more likely to have college degrees than dog owners.

A poll of 2,524 households found that 47.2% of those with a cat had at least one person educated to degree level, compared with 38.4% of homes with dogs.

The study said longer hours, possibly associated with better qualified jobs, may make owning a dog impractical.


Believe what you will, but the study authors made one big error: cats don't have owners. They have staff ;)

Wow sky. My cat wants nothing more than to purr on my lap and stare at me beatifically. Heck, she even plays fetch. It's adorable to watch her standing there, huffing, holding a toy in her mouth and waiting for me to reach out for it so she can drop it into my hand. Then to see her tense as her gaze fixes on it, waiting for me to throw it.

Why the cat hate? I don't hate dogs. I just don't get it.

Also don't follow the link in this name. I think there's some kind of virus at work on this on computer.

I offer a service for people who can't own a dog but want to enjoy all the benefits of one. For $30, I will show up once a month with a wheelbarrow full of feces and dump it around your backyard. Premium service includes sitting in your yard and screaming to the top of my lungs until the neighbors call the city.
