Fun facts about pets!

Today is National Pet Day.  It’s a great day to give some extra love to our furry (or scaly) friends.  I read an article not too long ago that said some people like their PETS more than other PEOPLE.  Some of the statistics below make that REALLY believable:

  • 45% of people throw birthday parties for their pets.
  • 8% of pets have a Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page. That’s a higher percentage than pets that have pet insurance!
  • 65% of people feature their pets on their social media profiles. (
  • 29% of people have more pictures of their pet than family or friends on their social media profiles. (
  • A survey by the pet camera maker Petcube reveals that 84% of pet owners show more affection to their pet than to their partner.  UH-oh!
