Forbes Living on the Cities That Love Their Pets the Most

One could argue that the top 20 cities that spend the most on the pets did not include yours.  Forbes Living, headquartered in St. Petersburg, FL did not make the list. However, that does not mean that people here do not love their pets enough to spend most of their income on them.

The list of the top 20 cities was compiled by Amazon for sales on pet products in 2013. The products included items for all kinds of pets. Miami pet owners spent the most money on pet apparel and accessories. Hello, stylish South Beach pooches! Seattle spent the most on pet treats letting us believe that either their pets are the best behaved or just spoiled rotten. San Jose spent the most on horse-related items which leads us to believe that those Silicon Valley execs want the best for their horses. In any case, Forbes Living TV finds it absolutely wonderful that pet owners think of their animals as their fur kids. We think the same for ours.
