U.S. pet owner spending data on Amazon reveals some of the contours of the sharp feline vs. canine divide. For example, while just under one in five (19.7%) of dog owners buy pet deodorizers, they are purchased by more than three-quarters (77.5%) of cat owners. Are cat owners more fastidious about smells, or do dogs simply smell better than cats? The latter seems unlikely given that “wet dog” is a notoriously unpleasant odor.
Additionally, cat owners are heavily invested in keeping their cats happy (or stoned), spending an estimated $528,000 per month on catnip. Learn more about pet purchase trends in this infographic from Netrush.
