The good citizens of America have just become my very very favourite people in the whole world and I congratulate them one and all from the bottom of my heart.
In 2011 these generous kind-hearted people spent nearly US$51 billion on their pets. Now that is what I call “Getting things in Perspective”.
We’re told that food and vet costs accounted for 65% of the total while grooming and special care such as pet hotels, daycare, and pet-sitting made up the remainder.
The American Pet Products Association predict a further increase in pet services in 2012. I unconditionally approve. And those who know me well will say that doesn’t happen very often.
Congratulations America. Just remember to lobby for increased varieties of delicious food for cats, as well as toys, and games, and pampering, and cosseting, and….I’m sure you get the picture.
