Sheep could be best company for pets left home alone

Creature comforts cost home owners £78 million according to a new survey by the Energy Saving Trust.

A recent survey by the Energy Savings Trust found that half of pet owners leave the heating on for their dog or cat while they are out for the day. While this is costing around £140 per year, a single visit to the vets’ can cost this much, so the cost of the indulgence is not a big incentive to make an energy saving at the expense of our pets’ comfort.
