Top 5 Regional Cat Breeds

Wednesday 12 July 2017

Have you ever wondered what the top cat breeds are in the UK? Well thanks to a recent survey undertaken by Sainsbury's Bank, well wonder no more. They have collated their results on top dog breeds and broken it down into regional areas of the UK.

The survey also found when it comes to how cats and dogs enhance their owners’ lives, the research revealed the main benefit is overcoming loneliness (29%); followed by owners improving their overall fitness (28%) and then combating depression (24%). Some 18% say their pets have helped them to be increasingly sociable by meeting more people, and 6% say they helped them to cope better with their disability.
