Pet owners can be weird.

In a recent survey by electronics insurance company SquareTrade, one in six respondents said they have set up a social media account for their pet, while one in four said they are a friend or follower of a pet.

As well, 18% of pet owners admitted to speaking to their pet using online video chatting software such as Skype or FaceTime.
