Cat or dog? A question that divides the nation. Thieves, however, are less picky, with new research from our client MORE TH>N today showing how intruders are nabbing valuable pets from all over the UK at an alarming rate – whether they come with nine lives or a reputation as man’s best friend.
The findings, from the first Pet Theft Census, revealed how one in every five cat and dog owners have experienced the theft of a pet during their lives and that the equivalent of three pets are stolen each and every day in the UK. Sadly, of all the cat and dog thefts in Britain, over a third (38%) of owners have never seen their four-legged companions again. Coverage for the story was secured in today’s Times, Sun, Daily Express and Daily Mirror.
