Sainsbury’s Pet Insurance has released a survey, which reveals that more than one million Britons believe their cat or dog has been stolen over the course of the last five years.

Nor is the astonishingly high figure pure paranoia, with the Missing Pets Bureau finding that some 38% of those who report their pet missing have actually been the victim of theft.

The startling revelation is cause for concern for the UK’s pet owners, though insurance is available to cope with the eventuality of a stolen pet.

Sadly, over three-fifths of those who have lost their dog or cat since 2002 have been unable to find them.

Cat-theft is usually accounted for by one of three reasons: for pedigree, for breed or for ransom.

Sainsbury’s advise keeping gardens secure, microchipping and collaring pets and not leaving your pet unattended outside.

In addition, some pet insurers offer better packages than others for dealing with pet theft, including cover for ransom fees.
