According to a poll conducted by ICM for John Lewis Insurance, one in four people in Great Britain allow their pets to share the bed with a family member. Furthermore 1-in-6 respondents always share their sleeping space with a furry companion, and that doesn’t mean husbands.
Women (27%) are more likely to share the sack with Fifi or Fluffy than men (22%)—a surprisingly close disparity.
And the poll also revealed that Scots seem to be quite fond of their pets, 37% claim they climb into the rack with their cats or dogs.
On an interesting note, 4% of the 2,003 people polled dress their pets in pajamas. I wonder if the pj’s have a flap?
Research was carried out by ICM Research on behalf of John Lewis Home Insurance and surveyed 2,003 UK adults from 25-27 February 2011.
