Children and pets can have the greatest friendships, bonding with one another in a unique and incomparable manner. However, things can quickly go downhill if the proper parameters aren’t put in place. The last thing you want is for any accidents or bad behaviour to happen, which is why it is important to bear safety in mind at all times.
Ladies and gentlemen, puppers and doggos of the UK; your attention, if you please!
It is National Take Your Dog to Work Day on Friday 23rd June, which means pet parents up and down the country will be making their journey to work with their beloved pooches by their sides. This makes for an extra special passage into the weekend as your furry friend sits by your side while you attempt to carry out your daily tasks.
When people talk about cats they often say “they’re independent”, “they just want food” or “cats are selfish”. However, cats are one of the most popular pets, for example, in the UK, 26% of households own a cat, that’s 1 in 4 families. We believe cats are so popular because they are easy to look after. They are independent, they choose when to go out, eat, or seek out human company and they are loving companions.
If you are the proud owner of a feline friend, the chances are that you will be familiar with all the benefits that a cat can bring. Love, affection and devotion are all perfect examples of how cats can enrich our lives – there is nothing quite like having a kitten curl up and fall asleep on your lap! Cats can also help us to relax and offer excellent ways to reduce stress levels and improve our general mood.
Caring for a dog is not easy and requires a lot of love and commitment, but for those that are willing to put the time in, the rewards are endless! When looking to adopt a pooch, it is important to always keep in mind that an animal is for life and not just a few years – much like having a child.
Many dogs are full of energy, meaning that they often run off when out on a walk. Sometimes a sudden loud noise can startle a dog, or a particularly free-spirited pooch fancies a solo sojourn the one time you forget to shut your garden gate properly. Sadly, pet thefts are also a common crime in the UK. Whatever the reason, it is never easy when a pet becomes lost.
