Animal support organisations reckon that in 2008 there were around 18 million pet-owning households in the UK, containing 27 million animals - more than half the total population.
Of these, 5.7 million households have dogs, while 4.8 million have cats. After this, the figures are much lower for rabbits, indoor birds, hamsters, gerbils etc. Yet there are an estimated 100,000 households in the UK with snakes as pets!
