National Love Your Pet Day

Did you know that today is National Love Your Pet Day? No, well today will be the perfect day if you havent already got a pet, to find out which pet would suit you and your family with Hello Pet the first pet matching service

Answer a few simple questions to find out whether you are a cat or a dog person, or whether you would be better suited to keeping fish! Ok I made the last bit up, but this is a fun way to find out which pet suits you best!

Thankfully I was matched with a cat! phew, I have never fancied all the early morning walks. My chosen short-haired cat sounds perfect for snuggling up with on a wet winters evening, in front of the fire. Unlike our two well-loved felines Magic & Mischief who prefer to be out chasing mice frogs and leaves. This app is a great place to start looking for your new friend, with so many animals abandoned each year why not start with something simple like the Hello Pet app before you commit yourself to something more costly. You can share your findings with friends on Twitter and Facebook, and see which pet they matched too!

We love our cats, and I wouldn’t part with them, they bring something extra to the family even if it is only the door opening and feeding service. But to see the boy chatting to them, caring for them I know that he has another living thing to look after. So with National Love Your Pet day in mind, why don’t you give your dog a scratch, and your cat an extra treat. I might just clean out my fish, just to let them know that we care.

My Little Champion Fencer

My son at his first fencing competition. I love this picture, it was taken at my sons first fencing competition. Each time I find it on my computer it makes me smile, as he looks so genuinely happy! I wonder what will happen at this years competition which is coming up soon. He came 3rd last year but had only been fencing a month. This year he says he wants to come first, so we will have to wait and see. Whatever happens, I hope he continues to enjoy taking part, and I know that I will always be proud of him whatever he does.
