New research shows that people in the East Midlands prefer dogs to cats.
A survey by Provident Personal Care revealed that 44.83 percent preferred canines to moggies (37.93 percent). Four legged friends have a big impact on their owner’s social life with 17.2% turning down a holiday because of their pet, and 12.6% have said no to a night out!
Despite dogs being naughtier than cats in regards to damage, the East Midlands are definitely a dog’s region. On average, dog owners shell out £254.73 a year to repair or replace the damaged furniture (compared to £212.02 for cat owners).
