Cats vs. Dogs: Who Takes More Smartphone Photos?

Have you ever wondered who takes more photos on their phone – cat owners or dog owners?  I checked Ma and Daddy-dog’s phone and quite frankly, they take a lot of photos of me so I would venture to guess that dog owners take a lot of photos of their dogs.

Oz the Terrier who takes more smartphone photos, cat or dog owners?

MiMedia recently asked the same question and conducted a nationwide study looking at digital trends around dogs and cats.  They were curious about different pet owners’ media sharing habits and how much storage space pet photos take up on owners’ digital devices.  The findings, from a sample of 1,000 pet owners, were quite impressive.  Let’s take a look at Cat Owners vs. Dog Owners:

Cat owners take an average of 4-5 photos of their pet per day, taking up 3.03 GB per year.
Dog owners take an average of 2 photos of their pet a day, which takes up 1.21 GB per year.

10 percent of Dog owners take more than 2 videos of their pet a week, 
40 percent of which are over 11 seconds.
Only 7 percent of Cat owners take more than 2 videos of their pet a week, 
30 percent of which are over 11 seconds.

40 percent of both Cat and Dog owners (Ma included) have run out of storage on their smartphones.

Sharing is Caring – 42 percent of all dog and cat videos/photos that are taken are shared on social media!

Have you checked your pet parents’ phones for photos of you lately?  I bet there are a lot of photos of you on there.  Do your pet parents fall within the above statistics from the MiMedia study?

  5. Cats and dogs have humans take their photos. We birds take selfies.

  6. kind of reason people don't take many videos of cat - they just tend to lay there doing nothing where as dogs are all over the place

  7. Mom takes pictures of us all the TIME with her phone!

  8. We dogs are about the only thing Mom uses her phone camera for, and then, usually just a short video. Sure have to worry about cats getting a bit too many photos these days! Dogs need to rule the world!

    1. Oh my dog, checked Mommys phone. She has pictures of us AND our cousin dog and (dare to say) cousin cats.

  9. Mom has hundreds and hundreds of pictures of me on her phone. Of course. Why wouldn't she?

    Love and licks,

  10. What about those who are "bi-petual?" That have cats AND dogs? I take a ton, but I take more of Cody than I do of Dakota (usually)

  11. OUr mom uses a camera - she cant' figure out how to get the pics of of her prepaid cell phone

  13. Our MOM and DAD BOTH take pictures of US with their phones... they are relentless about it.
