Do people that have pets have a larger carbon footprint than those that don’t?

    I read an article that I wasn’t able to recreate here that explained that a cat’s carbon footprint is roughly the equivalent of a Volkwagon Jetta and a dog are on average a mid-sized car. It’s tough to quantify these amounts because they are averages but the logic is the amount of waste they produce and the amount of food they consume equals that amount. The sentimental question then becomes whether it’s worth it to cat owners who consider themselves green to have a cat. However, as long as there are cats in shelters that don’t have homes, many of them are going to be kept alive anyways.
