I've mentioned them several times before - in fact, they've even helped out with the reviewing on several occasions ! - so I'm sure I don't need to introduce the Madhouse pets, but just in case, here are son and mum Didou and Vicky.
And chilled-out rabbit Charlie who likes to lay on his back with all four legs in the air !
I've always had pets so I thought I knew a lot about animals but I learnt a lot of interesting titbits of information that made me smile in the video infographic below that Petplan have put together about the four-legged friends that they insure.
I wasn't surprised to learn that they insure 302 breeds of dog but I didn't even know that there were 113 breeds of cat, 95 breeds of horse and 51 breeds of rabbit in existence !
As I mentioned, our rabbit is called Charlie so it was interesting to see that the most popular name for a rabbit is Daisy, but Charlie is the top name for horses and cats (and Alfie for dogs ! I've never met a single dog called Alfie !)
As our pets are getting on, we've been wondering recently what the average life span of a rabbit is. Charlie is about 10 now and as he's an albino, we were always told that they have a shorter life expectancy - well, he's not doing bad as the oldest rabbit on Petplan's books is 13. The oldest dog they have is 21 so both of the Madhouse pooches have a few good years left in them yet ! Their oldest horse is 40, which is rather impressive as it corresponds to 113 in human years !
Anyway, I won't give all of the secrets away - have a look and see what makes you smile (and I bet it's the silliest horse and dog names !)
