Be happy cat ladies, and men. Maine was rated #1 for cat lovers!! This is according to an on-line real estate publication, Estately. Almost half, 46% of Maine households own cats, that’s 11% higher than household with dogs.

Maine is named #1 for cats because of Facebook activity involving cats, our no-kill shelters and animal protection laws.

Vermont, the state which came in second is slightly more animal friendly when it comes to laws but lost out to Maine just maybe because of the fact we have a state cat, the Maine Coon cat!

The worst state for cats if you were wondering is Utah.

Are you a cat or a dog person?
