Nation of pet lovers
The UK is a nation of pet lovers with an estimated pet population of 9.9 million dogs and 10.9 million cats.
Despite this, new research from Sainsbury’s Bank found 1 in 5 owners regret choosing their pet’s breed. Some of the reasons for pet regret were the owner turned out to be allergic to their cat or dog’s breed (16%) or they simply didn’t like their pet’s personality (18%).
Getting a pet is a big responsibility and prospective owners should be sure to do research, so they’re fully prepared to look after their new furry friend.
To help you kickstart your research, Sainsbury’s Bank has created Pawfect Match, a new interactive tool that will pair you with the best breed of cat or dog depending on your lifestyle.
