Thought it was only your future mother-in-law you had to worry about?
Think again chaps.
A quarter of women would dump a man if their pet didn’t like him, a study found – and a third would leave their own bed and sleep on the floor next to their pet if it was ill.
Half claim they say ‘hello’ to their dog or cat before anyone else when they get home.
Men, however, seem to be a little less devoted.
Only 12 per cent said they would split up with their partner if their pet didn’t take to her.
The study, carried out by an animal health organisation, found that 40 per cent of the 1,094 pet owners surveyed would risk their own life to save their animal if it were in danger.
Half insisted they would spare no expense on treatment if their pet was ill – although a similar number forget to keep their vaccines up to date.
