Cats (domestic) Demographics Statistics (collected data) 6 Answers 2014-08-26T23:30:28+04:00 Added an answer on 26.08.14 23:30 Some estimates are as high as 9.8 billion felines, others are more reserved at 400 million. Both estimates are in regard to domesticated household cats. Note: it appears there are more dogs than cats however, in the domesticated arena. But conversely there are more feral cats (no estimate available) than wild dogs. In the United States, I suspect that is because dogs are required to be chained or leashed and cats are not, so stray dogs are more likely to be picked up by the Humane Society than cats. 2018-01-29T03:41:56+03:00 Added an answer on 29.01.18 03:41 According to Google, there are 600 million small cats (including pets, strays, homeless and feral cats, and another 100 million larger wild cats. https://www.google.com/search?safe=active&source=hp&ei=LmluWsfpKIrIjwOOyIjgDQ&q=how+many+cats+are+in+the+world&oq=how+many+cats+&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.0j0i20i264k1j0j0i20i264k1j0l6.422.935567.0.93822.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.1550.6j9.15.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..3.24.1640.0..35i39k1j0i131k1j0i131i20i264k1j0i3k1j0i10k1.0.dau_YDpozYU 2017-12-28T20:15:14+03:00 Added an answer on 28.12.17 20:15 About 1 billion cats ( including all cat species) living on earth….. may be other planets also have cats, just joking but I love alien cats too if they are real…. haha 2018-01-29T23:08:08+03:00 Added an answer on 29.01.18 23:08 I have no idea how many cats there are in the world. They are a great deal like Tribbles. You start with one. Then there are two. Then there are eight. Then there are 48. Then there 1,000. All in just a few months. So, however many it is calculated to be at any given moment, multiply that by 10 and that number is probably more accurate. All my cat cares about is that she is the only one playing with her toys, eating out of her food dishes, drinking out of her water bowls, sleeping in her beds, sleeping in my bed, and getting any of my attention. 2018-05-09T06:57:31+03:00 Added an answer on 09.05.18 06:57 Only one has an IQ of 273. 2018-01-29T03:42:45+03:00 Added an answer on 29.01.18 03:42 The Ecology Global Network estimates that there are about 600 million small cats in the world.
