Cat Poll Reveals Fun Interesting Statistics + Free Custom GIF of Your Pet in Time For Halloween


If you're hopelessly cat crazy like we are here at MommyBlogExpert, and need a break from all the non-stop U.S. presidential election polls constantly being bounced around right now, you're not going to want to miss this cat comic relief post. After all, what could be more purr-fect to help take your mind temporarily off Election Day* than by learning about the fascinating findings of the 2016 National Meowlloween Poll?
*In all seriousness and fairness, Election Day really is important and everyone who is eligible to make every effort to get out and vote and do your civic duty on Tuesday, November 11th.

Back on topic... With all the viral Halloween-themed cat memes and videos multiplying like kittens in cyberspace, Meow Mix in conjunction with Learndipity Data Insights decided it was high time to cat-a-poll to a new level with their own amusing and surprising poll. The big surprise: of those polled, only 8% of cat parents dress their kitties up for Halloween in costume. I wonder why, LOL?
