Pet Poverty

Based on a survey of 2,500 pet owners.

42% of people said they wouldn't be able to afford their pet, if they lost their job.

1 out of 10 pet owners said they prioritize their pet's insurance over their personal health insurance.

80% of current pet owners admit they failed to research the cost of owning a pet, prior to taking on the responsibility.

I have two cats. They both need to see the vet. One of them is coughing, sneezing, and can hardly meow. He also goes to the bathroom a lot in one setting.
My other one vomits alot but not so much I this cat food now. They are both 9 yrs old in Feb. I can barely afford there food and cat litter because they increase the prices.
They are my emotional support animals signed by the dr. herself. It keeps me company so I don’t try and commit suicide. It has helped a lot to. I’ve had them for 4 years now and haven’t thought about trying once. See emotional support animals are very good to have for people.
