Over at The Washington Post's Wonkblog, Roberto A. Ferdman and Christopher Ingraham set out to see where cats are more popular than dogs. The purplish states are dog country, while cats inhabit the greenish spaces.

"The most dog-friendly state is Arkansas," Wonkblog reports, "where dogs outnumber cats 1.35-to-1. At the other end of the spectrum stands Massachusetts with 1.87 cats for every dog."

Head over to Wonkblog to see the state-by-state stats, plus a look at the Dog vs. Cat showdown around the world.
