A survey by the association for pet nutrition and health
Assalco, released for the 15th edition of the trade show Zoomark

cats rule in number as the preferred home companion with 7.5
million kitties living with Italian families.

Meows and bow-wows aren't the only sounds coming from
Italy's pet-loving homes - small mammals, especially rabbits,
hamsters and mice number 1.8 million, while reptiles count for
1.4 million of the country's chosen pets.
Some 13 million birds brighten homes and 30 million fish
fill the nation's aquariums.
According to a 2013 Eurispes report, 55.3% of Italian
families have taken in one or more animal companions.
Italy has a population of 60.8 million, according to the
2011 census.
