Keep Calm and Join Team Cat poster

LONDON, 13 June 2013 – It’s a question that divides opinion and says a lot about your personality: are you a ‘cat person’ or a ‘dog person’? YummyPets, the leading social network for pets, is about to find out whether Britain is ultimately a nation of dog-lovers or cat-lovers, in what aims to be the biggest survey of its kind.

Opening today, is a simple voting mechanic on The kittens, we mean mittens, are off – as cat-lovers and dog-lovers try to get one up on each other and decide which animal ultimately unites the United Kingdom. The poll will be open on YummyPets for one month, and at the end of this time, the victor will be announced.

Stars of British reality TV are using their popularity to help get the voting started. Visit for more information on the captains for Team Dog and Team Cat.

It’s estimated that nearly one in four UK households own at least one dog (23%), meaning the UK dog population falls around 8 million. There are far fewer households with cats in the UK (believed to be approximately one in twenty) but their population certainly rivals the puppy patrol, also at around 8 million.

Which pet will reign supreme and who will end up in the dog house?

Commenting from his basket in Bordeaux, Leo the cat, co-founder of YummyPets, said, “Here at Yummypets we know this question will provoke controversy. Already, high-profile dogs and cats are lining up on either side of the divide, ready to do battle and be declared the nation’s favourite pet. “

“Amongst my friends on Yummypets I can now count hamsters, fish, snakes and rats – but obviously we cats and our canine cousins are the most popular pets out there. But, we want to find out which one is THE favourite so have decided to launch this poll. In France, dog profiles are just ahead of cats, but, in the UK, it is still a 50:50 split. Make sure you have your say!”
