There is now a website where you can find a partner compatible with your pet dog, cat, snake or spider.
A new Dutch website says it is a meeting place for all animal lovers, whether you are looking for a partner, someone who also likes snakes and spiders or someone who takes care of your chickens when you want to go away for the weekend.
"How can you find a nice partner who is just as crazy about animals as you are?" Betty Mercey said, who is launching the dating site this weekend called "Animal and Human".
Members of the site can describe themselves and their pets and when they think they have found someone who also likes their pets, they can contact each other through the website.
"I've heard from friends who have pets that it is difficult to find a partner. Specifically if you have more than one pet," Ms Mercey said, who owns 13 dogs and four cats with her partner.
