YAY: Cat lovers

We live in Washington. We love cats. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, our state ranks fifth in the nation for cat ownership. About 39 percent of us own cats.

We’re not so hot on dogs. Washington didn’t rate in either the top 10 or bottom 10 states for dog ownership, which pretty much sums up our ambivalent attitude toward animals whose poop we have to scoop.
