Sharing a bed with your pets

National Pet Month - survey reveals that Brits are opting to share bedrooms with their animals

National Pet Month

Five star housebuilder Barratt Homes, which is bringing new homes to Bristol, carried out the survey, asking 2,000 people where their pets generally sleep for National Pet Month. A significant 23 per cent said the bedroom, closely followed by 20 per cent allowing them to spend the night in the lounge. The news comes during April - which is designated National Pet Month in the UK.
