The results of a new survey may reveal whether dog owners or cat owners are more obsessed with their pets, as well as which of the two groups tend to make more money.
The survey by cloud service MiMedia asked 1,000 pet owners about their media sharing habits and storage space dedicated to their pets, reports 9News.
A whopping 40 percent of cat and dog owners said their phones’ storage have been maxed out due to photos and videos of their pets.
Cat owners reported taking an average of four to five photos of their pet a day, which amounts to a little over 3 GB of storage space a year. Dog owners, on the other hand, said they took about two photos of their pet a day, which takes up approximately 1.2 GB of storage space a year.
Although cats are more often photographed by their owners, dog owners are more likely to film their canine companions. Forty percent of the videos taken of dogs by their owners were over 11 seconds in length, while only 30 percent of videos taken of felines by their owners were at least the same length.
Surprisingly, the survey also found that women were more likely to own dogs: 27 percent of cat owners and 31 percent of dog owners were female.
Dog owners were also found to have higher yearly incomes. The average dog owner reported making an average of $75,000 to $99,999 per year, while cat owners reported making an average of only $50,000 to $74,999 per year.
