Love Your Pet Day 2021

A day to celebrate our fluffy friends

Animals are important in many people’s lives, it’s estimated that 12 million people in the UK own a pet, with around 51 million pets being owned! We are a nation of animal lovers and many of us couldn’t be without our pets. They bring joy to our lives every day, and provide us with many happy moments, and comfort among other things. On the 20th February 2021 it is Love You Pet Day, a day to really appreciate our fluffy and feathery family members.

There is such a variety of pets owned around the country, from more traditional pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea-pigs, ferrets, and birds to more unusual ones like bearded dragons, snakes, chameleons, and more. We all have our preferred pets which suit our everyday lives and bring us happiness. So, although officially the 20th Feb this year is a day dedicated to appreciating our pets, we think they should be appreciated every day.

There are lots of things you can do to show your pet your appreciation – here are some ideas to help:

  • An extra walk each day
  • Making homemade treats – there are plenty of pet safe recipes online to try out, and a lot of the ingredients you’ll already have in your cupboards.
  • A new toy
  • Get their favourite treats
  • A new toy
  • Extra cuddles
  • Extra play time
  • Try learning a new trick together

There are lots of things you could do for your pet to let them know even more how much you love having them around.

If you know someone who adores their pets you could even send them a special gift to make them smile and remind them how much their pet loves them! Our Cake Cards are lovely affordable letterbox gifts to send to any animal lover. We have a wonderful range of card fronts with popular pet illustrations – the special thing about our Pet Charity cards is that we will give £1 from every Pet Charity Cake Card to Wood Green, The Animals Charity. Making it even more meaningful to animal lovers, knowing that they have helped a good cause while sending or receiving a wonderful treat.

You can add a slice or two of delicious cake to your Cake Card gift, we have plenty of flavours to choose from including standard cake slices, gluten free cake slices, vegan cake slices, and even flapjacks. There’s a slice for everyone! On top of that we have lots of other goodies to pop in the card as well to make it extra special. Don’t forget to write a message inside the card in a font of you choosing from our font list.

Depending on the delivery date you have selected, orders will usually be despatched two days prior to your delivery date. You can pre-order for a future date / special occasion. We always recommend selecting a delivery date a day earlier than intended, just in case of any unforeseen issues.

All cake card orders are posted out on Royal Mail 48 hour tracked service. We will provide a tracking number so you can see where your order has got to. Royal Mail aim to deliver 96% of tracked items on time, including Saturdays, although this is not a guaranteed service.
