Your Cat Completely Rules Your Home, According To New Study

Leave a comment

You’re living in your cat’s house, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

 

To find out whether humans or their pet counterparts rule the land, Houzz conducted a survey of more than 3,100 pet owners and found that 53 percent of the cat owners who responded said their cat sleeps in their bed, while 73 percent said their cat has “free reign” over the furniture.

 

Good luck trying to tell a cat it can’t do something.

 
 

As for dogs, 41 percent command bed space and 48 percent can get on the couch and other furniture, but they’re more expensive than cats: 22 percent of dog owners spent more than $1,000 on their dog in toys and other items for the home in the past two years, versus 14 percent of cat owners.

 

So if you’re thinking about getting a cat or a dog, know you’ll probably spend a good chunk of change just getting your home ready. More than a third (35 percent) said they remodeled their home in preparation for their pet, whether they moved their furniture around, upgraded their flooring or re-landscaped their yard.

 

But don’t let that discourage you. Ninety percent of the responders said having a pet around makes them happy.

 

Of course, none of this be that surprising to anyone who already lives with a cat (or many of them).
