Pets here, pets there, pets everywhere! According to the 2015-2016 APPA National Pet Owners Survey by the American Pet Products Association, the number of households with pets in the US is 79.7 million and of those, the households that own at least one pet is 42.9 million. As some household have more than one feline in them, the estimated number of pet cats in US is 85.8 million.
Such staggering figures reveal that the pet industry, in and out of US, is not one to be disregarded. In a recent trademark opposition in Singapore, two manufacturers and exporters of animal feed battle their trademark rights in a catfight.
