This is So Cute!

In Australia there’s a company called Choosi that gathers information to give people tips on how to purchase insurance. The company did extensive consumer research on pet owners to learn the biggest influences on their buying behaviors. Here’s a link to their report presented as an Infographic. (We love infographics. They’re so much quicker than reading a report – BUT they are difficult to share because they don’t fit on a standard screen or paper if you want to print one.) Below are some of the fun facts in the report:


Oh, by the way, AUSTRALIA has the highest rate of pet ownership in the world!
