Lisa Melvin, Head of Marketing at Webbox Naturals, said: “It’s fascinating to see how far cat owners, particularly those in Lancashire, will go to pamper their pets, and we had great fun transforming the county’s landmarks.

“However, we’re firmly of the belief that pet owners shouldn’t need to spend big to nutritiously feed, and occasionally pamper, their cats. 

“That’s why we’re adding a 100 per cent money-back guarantee to our great value Webbox Naturals product offering.”

The pet food brand has transformed the county into Lan-CAT-shire, using the magic of AI to celebrate the area’s love of spoiling its cats.

Webbox also found that 20 per cent of the county’s residents spend £40 a month on cat treats, while the average cat owner in Lancashire is happy to spend a whopping £19 on a single treat.

The data from Webbox Naturals reveals that a third of cat owners would rather spend time with their feline over their partner whilst one in ten wish they could take their kitty to the pub with them.

When it comes to cats in the wild, an impressive 40 per cent of Brits admit to taking their feline friend for a stroll in the park, 15 per cent are taking them to the beach and 12 per cent are taking their cats on a hike.

The survey coincides with Webbox Naturals’ new 100 per cent satisfaction guarantee which promises pet parents a 100 per cent refund if their pet isn’t satisfied with the brand’s food.
