It’s unfair. Three-quarters of dog owners bought presents for their dog compared to 68% of cat owners according to a RSPCA survey in the UK. As expected men tend to buy presents for dogs and women buy them for cats.
As may also be expected 59% of dog owners treated their dog to some of the Christmas dinner. Forty-nine percent of cat owners did the same thing. This statistic is grounded in common sense as cats are strict carnivores and dogs are omnivores or at least very adaptable and flexible carnivores.
In fact of the 49% of cat owners who gave their cat a treat from their Christmas dinner I hope that it was a small amount and that it did not contain gravy (think onions)! Perhaps a bit of turkey is okay but it should stop there for cats.
In a French insurance company’s survey, 86% of dogs and 84% of cats received a present on Christmas Day. The French are fairer then!
I bought my cat a toy for Christmas. He has used it but not for long. Typical. I bought some king prawns for him for Christmas dinner. He loved them.
