Really though, 2010?

Most of the information is 2012, unfortunately for popular names I had to go back to 2010

I'm voting not only because it looks great but because actually looks like an Infographic!

Great design ! My cat is way above average on the sleep percent.... She strolled out of the bed at 6pm..... ( to her credit, it is very cold here today)

Re: STATS ON CATS

Since I seem not to have enough cat.shirt.woot ... my opinions:

- The inclusion of 2010 makes the shirt look "dated" already; it's going to look even more dated next year. A quick search did yield a list of most popular kitten names of 2012, but in any case, consider omitting the year completely.
- The cloud for the 20% adopted infers that it's only male cats that were adopted. Shift it over to represent the 60/40 gender split.
- What's the remaining 15% for the pie chart?
- Good spin on the critter-murder stat.

I was able to find 2012 names (as you kindly provided), but they did not have any statistical numbers with them. While I did not include the numbers in the actual design, I used them to accurately represent the difference in popularity between the names (as seen in the green bars). Otherwise, sure... I would have just made a list and been done with it.

I didn't think it'd be a huge deal including information from 2010 as the majority of text books I own (even from 2012) all include diagrams that are outdated by a few years or more. Some even as much as 10 or 15 years! Any kind of case study or research involves taking information from a mix of years. I don't know anyone who writes a paper using sources from just the current year. I think it's a bit unrealistic to expect that either.

I had a feeling someone would point out the adopted cats all being male too. I guess I just assumed that people would use their common sense to realize it was referring to the larger body of cats. But perhaps you're right. That was a huge undersight on my part.

Thanks for the critique

I've attached an amended version based on some of the common critique I've received. I know I've seen a few others do this, so I'm hoping it's cool?
