We’ve all heard of crazed parents, but what about crazy pet parents? A new survey by Statista reveals that 20% of pet owners consider themselves a “crazy pet parent.” Does this mean that the furry friends we love so much are being spoiled beyond reasonable limits? Let’s explore what it means to be a crazy pet parent.
The survey found that 10% of people have a portrait of their pet hanging on their wall, 8% have clothing items with their pet’s picture on it, 65% buy gifts for their pets, and 17% pay for insurance! So while they may not be as extreme as some die-hard sports fans out there, the “crazy pet parents” among us still love spoiling our furry friends.
When it comes to buying gifts for pets, owners tend to go above and beyond. From personalized beds and blankets, to fancy dog houses and cat towers—it seems like every day there’s a new gadget or toy designed specifically for our four-legged friends. And while some might think these purchases are excessive (as opposed to necessary),It’s undeniable that many people consider pet products to be essential needs rather than just pleasant extras when it comes to caring for their furry friends.
Pet insurance is another thing altogether – although some may think of it as an unnecessary expense, providing your fur baby with coverage can help protect you from any unexpected vet bills in the future. For example, speaking from experience, if your pup has an accident or develops an illness that requires treatment beyond the scope of regular care (like vaccinations or checkups) then having pet insurance can significantly reduce the stress associated with paying those hefty vet bills.
It’s clear from this survey that being a “crazy pet parent” isn’t necessarily something to be ashamed of – after all, a lot of people go above and beyond when it comes to taking care of their furry BFFs! Whether you’re buying gifts for your pup or investing in pet insurance coverage, there’s no denying that showing your furry friend how much you care can make all the difference in its life (and yours too!). So don’t feel guilty about going the extra mile – after all, our pets deserve nothing but the best!
