Did you know that an incredible 59% of UK households now own a pet of some sort or other? With levels of pet ownership rising by a whopping 18% over the last year.

Given the massive popularity of owning your very own pet, have you ever thought about how people’s attitudes to pet ownership have changed over the last 50 years?

Losing a pet can have a devastating effect on an owner’s life in many ways. Feelings of intense grief, loneliness and bewilderment can affect long-term health and wellbeing.

While it’s a subject many people either won’t want to think about, let alone discuss, here at NAWT we take a very different view thanks to our partnership with ALLY.

When the time came to chose a new rescue cat, Charlotte was like most of us, in that she wanted to a cuddly lap cat. But then she saw Nala, and everything changed.

The fearful, lonely cat was going to be a difficult animal to rehome, simply because she had trouble getting close to humans. Charlotte took one look at Nala’s beautiful face and immediately felt she should be the one to give her the safe, happy, home she needed to rebuild her trust in people again.

Many animals, like me, arrive at a NAWT centre in urgent need of veterinary treatment, and then require extensive on-going care before we can be rehomed. The lovely folk at NAWT always put our welfare first, but medical treatment can be very expensive.

Casey came into the care of NAWT Hertfordshire in October 2020 as a pregnant stray. The team were told she was feral/semi feral, and her behaviour at the time suggested that this was indeed accurate.

So they made sure that Casey was comfortable by keeping handling to a minimum, as otherwise she would get very stressed, and would hiss and swipe at anyone who approached.

Once Casey had her kittens, the plan was to neuter and release her back to her colony. But although Casey was scared, as time went on, it became clear that she wasn’t actually behaving like a typical feral.

Saturday 20th February 2021 is National Love Your Pet Day, a great day to show some love to our four-legged furry friends.

Whether you’re a cat lover, dog lover, rabbit lover or general animal lover, this day is another excuse to spoil them even more than you normally do and show them how much they mean to you!

We all like to think of our pets as ‘one of the family’ and as such, like to make them feel loved and at home. Some accessories, like a collar or a hutch, are basic necessities, whilst others, such as a multitude of outfits or a spa-style activity, could be seen as slightly less than ‘essential’.

Here at NAWT, we thought it would be interesting to look back at how pet accessories have changed over the last five decades…
