How Much Do Cats Actually Kill?

Infographic cartoon for How Much Do Cats Actually Kill?

About this infographic

Cats are serial killers! This infographic by cartoonist The Oatmeal, using data from The University of Georgia and National Geographic, shows just that. This infographic is in typical The Oatmeal style proving that a good data visualization doesn’t have to have a serious tone or layout to it. Interesting (and scary?) thought: there are 84 million domestic cats in the US, and based on research data 28 million of them are regular killers accounting for 2,912,000,000 (almost 3 billion!) kills per year. Related to this is The Oatmeal’s book How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you.
