HERE at The Mail we are passionate as our readers about our animal friends.

We understand the joy and companionship pets bring in our readers lives so we try to celebrate their contributions here.

In a bid to celebrate the joy these creatures of nature bring to our lives we have launched Pets of the Week.

This is a dedicated space to nominate your four-legged friends or your cold blooded reptiles for the coveted title of The Mail’s Pet of the Week.

Vanessa Sims, The Mail’s editor, said: “There are very few things man loves more than his pets.

“Here at The Mail we are as passionate as you are about them. So let’s celebrate the together!”

Nominate your pet via or through The Mail’s Facebook page.
