Unless the numerical position of the letter of the alphabet comes into the equation, and I really can't be arsed with working that out, I have no idea.

Btw:

The pets bit; if for each pet (cats and dogs) they had those other animals (birds, goldfish and mice) - then surely they would constitute pets too.

This makes the total number = ∞
