http://www.mypetbook.co.uk is a New Website for all Pet and Animal lovers. One of the main contributors is TV wildlife presenter Chris Packham - excerpts from the new edition of his book ‘Chris Packham’s Back Garden Nature Reserve’ will be featured throughout the year. Mypetbook is just like Facebook but for pets! Pet lovers can put their pet pictures on the site free of charge and then make contact with other owners of similar animals. If they haven’t a pet, then members can register a wild pet in the form of a robin or a squirrel! This will help children learn more about wildlife and help in future garden wildlife surveys. Everyone who registers a pet will receive discount vouchers against pet products.
Apart from Chris’s news about his dogs Itchy and Scratchy- he talks about feeding birds and building nest boxes - the site has loads of interesting and informative articles including news from the Isle of Wight Zoo (Casper the white lion has just moved in), a what’s on spot (where members can publicise or learn about local pet and animal events), a community page, where there is a pet sitters group to join, or new groups can be created, a Vet’s corner where Paul Webster will answer health queries, free classified ads for pet owners should anyone have that old rabbit hutch to sell. There is also a Shopping Mall with everything an owner needs for their pet, and a gallery of pet and animal pictures and prints.
Chris will also pre-judge two photographic competitions-one for adults and the other for under 10s,with fabulous cameras as prizes. mypetbook fans will pick the winner from the top ten selected by him.
Celebrating the launch of the website, editor Rachel Benneworth (who has 2 goldfish, Rainbow and Nemo) said, “mypetbook will allow anyone passionate about pets and animals to spend fun and constructive time on the site sharing their photos and knowledge on every related topic from health to events and to learn from new friends as well as the experts - improving the life of their pets and wild animals into the bargain. If you don’t have a pet you can register a ‘wild pet ‘such as “Robbie the Robin”
Mypetbook caters for owners of all ages of cats, dogs, birds, rodents, horses, farm animals, fish, reptiles and wild pets. So register now on mypetbook.co.uk
