Maybe it's just me, but when I surf around to blogs or websites of other people interested in history or historical fiction, I seem to encounter more cat people than dog people, judging from the pictures people post and the comments they make. And when people comment on my own website, they quite often mention my Cats Galore page, but not the My Buddy Boswell page (my cairn terrier's page). So this makes me think, are people who like historical fiction more cat-loving people or dog-loving people?
(I myself am a cat person of long standing, as anyone who's had the misfortune to view our carpet and chairs can attest. Every item I wear bears a patina of cat hair, courtesy of the four felines who run our house. In 2001, however, I got Boswell, and he's almost made a dog person out of me. So it's a close one.)
