As February draws to a close, pet owners from across the region have once again showcased their beloved furry companions in the running for the title of Perfect Pet. This month has seen pleasant weather and unique occurrences with it being a leap year, adding an extra day to the calendar.

Pet enthusiasts submitted a delightful array of entries, each portraying the special bond between humans and their animal companions. From cuddly cats to playful pups, the submissions reflect the diversity and charm of our local pet community.


PiperPiper may only have one brain cell, but she is the sweetest and silliest cat. She has quite the fan club on my social media. Piper gets lots of compliments on her "makeup/eyeliner". Seriously, how lucky is she that she's always ready to go out? Flawless makeup 24/7. And for 10 years old, she still has the energy of a kitten. Seriously, best kitty ever.

DieselToday we lost a battle with a porcupine on the farm. Diesel was calm, cool and collective the whole time even after all the quills to the face.


NovaNova is a recent addition to our little family. She is a big ball of energy with an even bigger personality. Nova has a heart of gold and loves giving kisses to everyone she meets! Nova is the biggest Daddy’s girl and is always up for some cuddles on the couch. She is not a huge fan of baths, but loves splashing and playing with the water in her bowl! When Nova isn’t busy playing with her toys, she enjoys long naps in the sun or right by mom and dad’s feet.

EbzEbz is a 3 1/2 year old male pitbull boxer who doesn’t believe he is a dog. He enjoys sleeping on anything but the floor, even dad’s work bag. His new favourite is rolling his window down when he wants it down, so now we play window tag.


NovaMy cat Nova is the best animal in the entire world! She once saved me from a gang of murderous ninjas! They busted down my door saying I owed them money. 12 black clad men surrounded me in my own living room! When the leader announced "your debt will be paid with your life!" It was at this time Nova burst from the closet engaging in hand to paw combat. The battle raged on 5 minutes until the second in command realized they were actually looking for someone in weyburn. Turn out they were pretty nice guys, they paid for the door and left. Still I would have been in real trouble if it wasn't for the little furball!
