According to a new study by pet insurer Petplan, there’s been a 36% increase in the number of pet owners creating Facebook and Twitter accounts for their animals in the last 12 months. Facebook is the more popular destination, with 7% of dogs on the site, compared to 4% of cats. And if owners aren’t letting their pets bark and meow on their own — they’re certainly talking about them on their own profile pages, as 42% of pet owners upload pictures of their pets (that’s it?).

Meanwhile, 37% of pet parents most status updates on behalf of their furry children. Even though cats are the dominant Internet animal when it comes to memes, it’s the dogs people want to talk about. Petplan noted that man’s best friends are talked about 12 times more often than cats on Twitter.
