A New Survey on How Much We'd Spend to Save a Pet's Life, and Whether We'd Save Our Pet From a Burning Building


It's not considered STRANGE in this country to be OBSESSED with your pets . . . at least it's not strange until you hoard 832 cats and they stay alive by eating your carcass.  Then it's strange.  Until then, totally normal.
 
A new survey by CBS News and "Vanity Fair" dug even deeper into Americans' pet obsession.  Here's what they found . . .
 
1.  15% of people say they'd spend ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY on medical treatments for their pets.  Another 9% would spend between $5,000 and $10,000.  The most common cap on pet medical expenses was $1,000, with 22% of the vote.
 
2.  More than three-quarters of us would RISK OUR OWN LIVES to save pets from a fire.  78% would run into a burning house to save their pet.  That includes 81% of dog owners and 71% of cat owners.
 
3.  42% of people ALWAYS trust their pet's instincts about other people . . . like, if their dog snarls and barks at someone, they believe the dog KNOWS it's a bad person.
 
4.  What's the best reason NOT to get a pet?  28% of people say it's the expense . . . 27% say a pet makes it tougher to go on vacation . . . 20% say it's cleaning up after them . . . and 18% say it's hard because they eventually die.
 
5.  51% of people say they FLUSH a dead pet fish.  44% bury it.  (CBS News)
