I can’t even begin to explain how proud I am of my daughter, she’s bright, friendly well natured and the loveliest little girl. She also has a burning ambition to become a vet and we are trying our best to support this however we can. A couple of years ago we decided to get a family pet and welcomed our lovely cat Jonny into our home. Jonny and Fifi have become the best of friends and she spends a lot of time with him and enjoys caring for him.
One thing we have discovered is that we have an accident prone cat. He is quite an explorer and is forever getting himself into scrapes. About a year ago he came back with some serious injuries which I think were the result of squeezing through some barbed wire or similar. Jonny had to have quite a lot of stitches and medicine all on a Saturday and we were really fortune to have taken out PetPlan insurance. The insurance saved us hundreds of pounds at a time when we really couldn’t have afforded it. The reason that we happened to have PetPlan out of all the different companies out there was that we had got Jonny from Cats Protection and they had recommended it.
Anyway, it was lovely to hear from PetPlan recently about the Dream Pet campaign for bloggers. I must admit I don’t really get involved in many blogging campaigns but I knew that little Fifi would absolutely love this one, partly because PetPlan were asking her to get involved and she loves reading their magazine!
PetPlan have asked the children of bloggers to create their dream pet. This was a tricky ask for Fifi as she’d quite happily provide a home to every passing animal. She decided on a mixture between a dog, a horse that flies. She’s desperate for a pet dog and her own pony and takes every opportunity to try to get round myself and the hubby.
Meet Sparkle, Fifi’s new best friend and her dream pet. Petplan really kindly took this drawing and had her made into an actual soft toy! I was frankly astonished, they had done such an amazing job, real life sparkle looks just like the picture.
Fifi unsurprisingly loves Sparkle. She has taken her to show and tell, to bed, to the Tate Modern. The list goes on and I suspect that Sparkle will now become a firm favourite and a feature of Fifi’s childhood.
Pets are a wonderful addition to any home, I have really seen the benefits in having Jonny Cat as a member of our family. The boys are more considerate of animals and they have all benefitted immensely. It has been such a joy to see the children grow with Jonny and I must admit, I love my cat (because he is definitely my cat). I’m ever so grateful that Jonny found us as a family and that we took out pet insurance as it has been invaluable thanks to his adventures!
I’ve learnt more about Petplan as a result of this campaign: They work with more animal rehoming charities than any other pet insurance provider and are committed to supporting charities and the vital work they do. They work with more than 1,200 charities throughout the UK and in 1994, formed the Petplan Charitable Trust which has so far raised more than £7million towards a better, healthier world for animals.
This has been a lovely post to write and i’m quite proud to recommend PetPlan here on this blog, this post has been made possible thanks to them but all the thoughts are my own
