Dogs are not man's best friend anymore - their place by the chimney has been taken by the cat. In England there are six million, whereas there are eight million domestic cats.

They are very independent compared to other domestic pets (there is no need to take them out for a long walk after a long and hard day at work). They have therapeutic qualities that have an effect on people. For example, they are gentle and loving, and after a hard day of work playing and petting a cat can produce a calming effect and alleviate stress.
