There’s nothing strange about asking a pet if they’re hungry or something, but if you’re having long conversations with them about your day . . . or Paul in accounting . . . or supply chain issues . . . that’s kinda weird, right?
A poll asked pet owners if they talk “at length” with their pets, and 60% of dog owners say they have full-blown discussions with their dog. That’s higher than cat owners . . . only 52% say they have long talks with their cats.
When asked who’s “in charge” in their home, 62% of people said the HUMANS are in charge. 10% said their PETS rule the house. And 25% say they and their pets are both “equally in charge.” (???)
Here are some other results from the poll:
1. 38% of pet owners say they have birthday celebrations for their pets.
2. 56% say they buy their pets gifts for birthdays or holidays.
3. 24% say they dress their pets up for holidays or events.
4. 30% say it’s a “good idea” to give a pet AS a gift. 35% say it’s a bad idea.
