According to the Animal Health Alliance (AHA), our nation spends about eight billion dollars on pets, with $1,051 per year per dog in a household and $705 pet cat. With more than 63% of Australian households having a pet, more than the 43% of the UK, we show just how much of an animal loving nation we are, having the population of 3.7 million dogs, 2.2 million cats, 7.8 million birds, 20.5 million fish and others 2.9 million. This goes to show our love for them.
Though the population of cats is behind that of dogs, they are still very much adored and worshipped as they were in the days of ancient Egypt. Some of the ways cats have helped society are rescuing owners from fire , vicious dog attacks, being given the honourable position of mayor in a city in Alaska, called Talkeetna – the city got its feline mayor, better known as Stubbs, in 1997, and help revive an almost forgotten railway station like cat Tama did at the outskirts of Japan’s Wakayama City.
The adoration is further proved by the fact there are many cat cafés around the world, ever since the first one opened in Taipei, Taiwan, in 1998. Of course, dogs and cats aren’t the only favourite pets; there are rabbit cafés in Japan for anyone who wants to spend some quality time in the company of bunnies.
