People who are fond of keeping pets, no matter what animal it is, swore that welcoming a newborn in the house never would change the way they felt for caring about their pet animals.
However, a new study has been able to find that pet owners in Indiana do feel that parenthood has an effect upon the way a pet is taken care of by the owner.
In order to establish a point, the study incorporated questions on how much time people could give in towards taking care of their pets or how frequently they would take their pets to a vet doctor.
The final question on the list was a substitute for how well the animals were being cared.
David Blouin, a Cultural Sociologist at Indiana University South Bend, informed LiveScience that in most of the cases for dogs and cats, excluding cats being taken to vet, kids did have an impact upon care of animals.
Blouin said that pet ownership was something quite common in the U.S. with more than 60% of households claiming no less than one pet.
People loving their pets and then shifting attitude over time, came as astonishment to him and along with this there were other reasons, which he looked at, that affected an owner-pet relationship.
