dcox_and_dolly Thank you for all the great feedback on our 'return'!

In this issue: we profile a home pet care service, list upcoming events and fundraisers - and put the spotlight on an animal welfare group.

Plus, we find out the joys of 'oldie' pets in our lives, take a look at a link to a cats indoors website and get expert advice on dogs and children together.

Two readers tell us about Percy the woodpigeon and Donut the kitten.
