Scottish women have also begun to dress up their pets and also indulge in child-talk with them.

The survey also found that 75% treat their pets with expensive gifts and food items on special occasions like Christmas or the pets' birthday. Furthermore, 82% feed foods like cheese, cake and crisps to their pets.

Some pet owners worry when they have to take business trips or holidays and leave their pets back at home.
