This is Buddy, Francesca’s beloved dwarf hamster. She got her parents Alistair and Trish to send us this picture.
Buddy is six months old, a real character, loves climbing and his favourite food is pumpkin seeds.
He’s always on the move and loves nothing more than a spin on his wheel, often keeping the whole family awake at night!
Maxine’s cat Tigger loves to snuggle up - and his favourite bag is a Bag for Life! Which just goes to show that some cats like what they like!
This is Becky’s beloved dog Pixie - a resident of Saffron Walden and the very proud winner of three rosettes including the all important RED 1st Place Rosette at the Cambridge Country Show.
She won for Best Talent- she played the piano!
Julie has sent in some pictures of Basil, a feral cat she has fed for over four years but still can’t get that close to.
“He comes in the house but only if the door stays open. He has had several homes in my garden.
"Although not a pet as such, he has so much character and has become our boy. Bless him.”
Laura got in touch to talk about Maisie.
“Just moved to Saffron Walden and enjoying relaxing in her cat bed. She is 17 years old.
"What a lovely place to spend her older years.”
