If you think you’re capable of loving and spoiling your furry, feathered or scaly friend the most, you may have a little competition if you live in a city full of like-minded pet owners.

Amazon released its list of the top cities (400,000 or more residents) in the US that pamper their pets the most (based off of 2013 pet item purchases), just in time for May—National Pet Month, and I’ve got to say, I’m pretty surprised at the list. If New York City didn’t make the cut, then why do I see so many posh pups wearing designer rain booties and matching coats on stormy days?

Check out the Top 20 Most Pampered Pet Cities in the US list below:

1. Miami

2. Seattle

3. Atlanta

4. San Francisco

5. Portland, Oregon

6. Washington, DC

7. Las Vegas

8. Austin, Texas

9. Tucson, Arizona

10. San Diego

11. Sacramento, Caliornia

12. Raleigh, North Carolina

13. Denver

14. Colorado Springs, Colorado

15. Baltimore

16. San Jose, California

17. Albuquerque, New Mexico

18. Chicago

19. Omaha, Nebraska

20. Virginia Beach, Virginia

Not surprisingly, Miami residents spent the most on toys for all pets, and then the most on apparel, accessories, grooming products and health supplies for dogs and cats. Hey, when you live near South Beach and could have a pro athlete or a Grammy-winning artist as your neighbor, you’ve got to have your best bandanna on at all times!
