anthropogenesis has a problem with pets in America:

How much dog food would those 60 odd million dogs eat? Is food diverted from human mouths to feed them or is dog food a waste byproduct of human food processes? And what about the 76 million pet cats in America? Are these 136 million pets included in the population count when comparing countries per capita usage of resources?
