Fifteen per cent of pet owners in Sheffield have admitted speaking to their pets more than other people.

A survey of animal lovers in the city by Vetsure Pet Insurance also found almost 75 per cent of those interviewed talk to their pet on a regular basis.

More than one-third also said they confide or seek comfort in their pet each day. Ashley Gray, founder of Vetsure, said: “Pets clearly have other positive effects on such individuals including offering a reason to get out and meet other people as well as being an incentive to undertake exercise.”
