It’s written in the stars …

It’s Valentine’s Day – hooray! Ensure the dreamiest day of the year is one you’ll forever spend swept of your feet by falling in love with the pitter-patter of claws or the loving embrace of warm paws!

Finding your purrfect pet this Valentine’s Day is all but written in the stars. Allow your star sign to shed light on the most magical match for you and find a furry or feathered friend to fall in love with as fast as a shooting star.

The strength shown by those of Aquarius, Pisces and Aries signs demands a pet that’s equally wise and strong. Man’s best friend makes a great mate for these signs, with the kind and intelligent Labrador leading the pack. Loyal in relationships with a lot of love to give, these star signs are best paired with pooches that are affectionate and partial to a pat or cuddle on the couch.

Taurus, Gemini and Cancer signs adore the outdoors, as do the pets that suit them best. Adventurous and willing to give anything a try, dogs that leap and bound across grassy-green ovals or rabbits that explore a garden’s every inch are known to effortlessly win the hearts of these signs.

The creativity of those born to the Leo, Virgo and Libra star signs deserves to be met with an equally inventive pet. Rather than a traditional dog or cat, love thrives with these pet owners when met with animals just as exuberant as they are. Thinking outside of the box sees these star signs befriend colourful birds, cheeky ferrets and aquariums filled with exotic fish.

Resilient signs of Scorpio, Sagittarius and Capricorn are ideally suited to the confidence of felines. Comfortable in their own skin and content in their own company, cats similarly march to the beat of their own drum.

There’s no need to check into Heartbreak Hotel should your relationship status be solo this Valentine’s Day. If you allow your star sign to the loving arms of a furry friend of feathery pal, the unconditional love of a pet is all but a constellation away.

Fancy food

Valentine’s Day is all about indulgence, so make sure your pets feel special too. Freeze a couple of raspberries in water for the perfect treat on a warm summers day! Or, head to your local pet store and pick up some gourmet goodies for your furry friend as an extra special treat!

Make sure you don’t leave any chocolate within your pets reach, and make sure you keep all balloons and other dangerous toys well out of their way too, so you can both enjoy the day of love!
