Americans have fewer PETS than they did 5 years ago – to the tune of about 9.5 million.
Two reasons according to the American Veterinary Association:
Economics – people can’t afford it
Demographics – fewer family units living together and families are more likely to have pets.
Cats really getting the short end of the stick as people have 2 million fewer dogs but over 7 million fewer cats!
