One-third of British cat owners – more men than women – Skype with their pet.
Over a third of British cat owners Skype or FaceTime their pet, with men particularly keen to speak to their feline friends over the phone, it has been revealed.
A poll for the greetings card company Hallmark showed that 23% of British men spent time talking to their cat on the phone, a greater percentage than women cat owners.
Even more surprisingly (or perhaps not), 50% of Brits say they’d rather spend time with their cat than with another human being.
And it seems that cats are living it up inBritain, with 20% of the nation’s kitties being taken on family holidays and 15% being served specially made meals on a daily basis.
Thirty per cent of women and almost 18% of men buy their cat a birthday card and/or present, and nearly 37% of men have tried to teach their cat to perform tricks and stunts.
Hallmark conducted the poll of over 1,000 cat owners to mark the launch of its new Little Meow greetings card range.
However, Britain isn’t the only cat-mad country – according to the results of a survey by SquareTrade revealed last week, 18% of US animal owners have spoken to a pet on Skype, FaceTime or another online video chatting software, and 17% have made a social media account for a pet. – AFP Relaxnews
