Since 2004, all EU Member States apply the same rules for travelling with dogs, cats and ferrets. Some Member States, however, impose additional conditions.

In custody cases, judges have started talking about the best interests of the cat and which home it would be better in, which you would never do for a couch or a lamp. If a cat or a dog is killed, owners are starting to be able to sue for mental suffering and loss of companionship, which traditionally have applied only to spouses and children. You are really seeing this revolution taking place in the legal system as well as in our homes.

These Amazing Animals Keep Other Animals As Pets

Guidance and legislation covering pet welfare and animal cruelty. With respect to cat ownership, Table 2 shows similar univariate associations with the odds of owning a cat as seen with dog ownership, with the exception that female single respondents had a higher odds of owning a cat (rather than lower), age was not associated with cat ownership, and higher BMI and larger household size were associated with lower odds of owning a cat. These differences were all quite small, although the race differences were even more pronounced between cat- and non-cat owners than dog- and non-dog owners: White respondents were 4.64 times more likely to own a cat than respondents from other races.

These animals could also potentially transmit deadly infections to humans. For instance, reptiles can carry salmonella bacteria, and monkeys can carry the herpes B virus, both of which can be deadly in humans. Another case documented by Born Free involved a 37-year-old man who contracted the fungal disease blastomycosis after being bitten by his pet kinkajou, a rain-forest mammal.

Multivariate logistic regression results displayed in Table 3 show that single female respondents were 25% more likely to own a cat, while single male respondents were less likely to own a cat when compared to married respondents (reference group) adjusted for all other factors. These multivariate results also show that lower odds of owning a cat are associated with older age and non-white race. Smaller household sizes, home ownership, living in a home, full time employment of the household, and more rural location were associated with higher odds of owning a cat.
