How often do you say 'I love you' to your cat?

A report put together by Pets at Home has revealed that a considerable 42 per cent of pet owners tell their pets they love them at least twice a day - proving that we're not just a nation of pet lovers, but pen fanatics! 

The findings also revealed that one in five owners (22 per cent) confessed to sharing a bed with their pets as often as with their partner, and 17 per cent even went as far as to say that they trusted their furry friends more than they trusted their own partners. Would you say the same? 

A third of owners go on holiday with their pets, paying on average an extra £126 for the privilege. And, even if they can't take their pets away with them, a whopping 67 per cent of pet-owning holiday makers call home to speak to their pet! 

Pets also have a considerable presence on social media, which is growing by the day. A staggering 88 per cent of owners regularly upload photos of their pets onto internet sites, while 86 per cent talk about their pets on social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
