26% Of Us Have Chucked A Sickie To Care For A Pet

Chucking a sickie is a typical Aussie thing to do. Most people fake it when the weather is warm enough to pull a sneaky beach day.

However, a study conducted last year has discovered that 26% of the 1000 people surveyed admitted to staying home from work to look after their pet.

It also showed 30% of those people chose to look after their cat than go to work. 

The study also found that around 30% have missed out of social events such as parties in order to stay home with their pets and 60% have admitted that their pet can influence their overall mood. 

Looks like we’re a nation that’s crazy for our pets!
