Cohabitation and Pet Custody

While not a new subject (I have posts here and here and here and here), I could not resist The London Times' Forget the kids – now custody battles are switching to Fido. I think this is the first article discussing pets and cohabitation agreements.

"Couples who lived together but never married are drawing up more informal agreements.

Rachel Worley, 32, a magazine production assistant, shares custody of BJ, her jack russell. Every six months the dog is shuttled between her home in Chertsey, Surrey, and her former boyfriend’s home in the south of France. “It is quite amicable, although if it wasn’t for the dog we wouldn’t have any need to stay in touch any more,” Worley said."
