Cats & Dogs hate video game nerds

"The president of the Australian Veterinary Association, Kersti Seksel, said children choosing computer games over pets was a factor in the decline of pet ownership. "These days children interact more by playing computer games and less by going out there and throwing the ball to a dog. We need to learn people skills, physical skills, and sitting in the lounge room with a computer doesn't teach you that," Dr Seksel said"

"Research commissioned by the Australian Companion Animals Council shows that the number of dogs has fallen from 4 million in 2000 to 2.75 million in 2007, and cat numbers have dropped from 3.2 million in 1988 to 2.3 million.
