Which Cities Spend The Most Money On Pampering Pets?

So you think you love your little fluffy wuffy snorgly borgly honeypie Fido, do you? You tuck him in with his special blanket every night, feed him his fancy food and generally fawn over your pet — but how does your city stack up when it comes to spending cash on pets?

Because apparently may is National Pet Month, Amazon.com celebrated by releasing its list of the 20 most pampered pet cities in the United States. Keep in mind that Amazon is in the business of selling pet goods, so this list is far from the definitive word on spoiled pets.

The list is on 2013 sales of pet-related items — from Mr. Whiskers’ favorite toy to Rover’s beloved brush. Does your fish have a ginormous fish palace? That’s included too.

1. Miami
2. Seattle
3. Atlanta
4. San Francisco
5. Portland, Ore.
6. Washington, D.C.
7. Las Vegas
