SIMON COWELL, Gemma Atkinson and Ruth Langsford all do it . . . share a bed with their pets, that is.
And they are in good company. A Paws Claws consult found adult to 30 per cent of us nap alongside a pets any night. But of those, roughly dual thirds certified it had led to problems in their tellurian relationship.
One respondent even pronounced kipping with their pooch had led to divorce.
Our adore event with pets is during an all-time high.
The consult suggested that many people have a bedtime slight with their animals, from giving them a provide to tucking them adult in bed.
And 49 per cent pronounced they even give their pet a lick and a cuddle any night before they go to sleep.
Our survey, conducted by pet product specialist Rosewood, asked 1,050 owners about their sleeping habits.

One respondent pronounced of their partner: “He likes to nap with a dog, we don’t. Sometimes he sleeps in a gangling room only so he can nap with a dog.”
“Some pets won’t nap anywhere else in a residence unless they have an object of their owner’s wardrobe to graze adult with.”
But Bev Panter, Rosewood’s selling director, warned people not to nap in a same bed as their pet since of a compared health risks.
IT’S been plain sailing for Zissou a cat after being found in a empty in a Dominican Republic final summer, only a few weeks old.

Kach told Paws Claws: “We nursed him behind to health. He had some skin problems, fleas and ear mites.
“He loves life on a vessel – a deck, pillar and paraphernalia are like a hulk playground.
“Captain Ahab loves Zissou so much. The dual are never distant apart.”
Pet vet: Sean McCormack
SEAN McCORMACK, conduct oldster during tailored food organisation tails.com, is on a goal to assistance a nation’s pets.
LOUIS MAYERS, 33, from Manchester, has a tiny schnauzer called Dusty, eight. She has not been neutered since Louis was suggested opposite it. But now people contend she should be “done” since she might be some-more disposed to cancer.
Sean says: “She’s positively not too aged and it’s a good time to cruise neutering – or spaying, as we contend for a womanlike dog.
“An analgesic now for a slight spay is many safer than watchful until she has a problem that requires surgery. We’d suggest neutering to forestall a potentially deadly womb infection called a pyometra, a risk of that increases any time she has a season, and to revoke a risk of mammary or breast cancer, among other types. There are no health advantages to withdrawal an eight-year-old womanlike “entire”. A sterilise is a really protected and slight procedure.”
ANGELA HARRIS, 47, from Dumfries, says: “My cat Sophie is darling in any way. A large purring feathery round of fun. But on a weekly basement she brings in her latest kill.
Last week we found a half-dead frog in a kitchen. We have had mice she’s not utterly got to grips with too. What can we do?”
Sean says: “It’s in a cat’s inlet to hunt, unfortunately, so it can be tough to control.
“Try gripping Sophie indoors during slightest during night and early morning when many wildlife is active. Attach dual bells on her collar side by side to warning wildlife to her presence, as cats mostly learn how to petiole silently with a singular bell.
“Redirecting her sport instincts into chase, locate and pounce games and toys indoors might assistance practice this expostulate of hers. There are many accessories accessible like fishing rod toys, spinners, nonplus games and laser pointers.
“Finally, make certain her worming and flea diagnosis is adult to date as rodents in sold can broadcast several parasites.”
