Hello and welcome to the June/July edition of PetFocus Magazine.

As the smells of freshly cut grass and barbecues waft through the air, our thoughts turn to summer – and the dream of finally getting away on holiday becomes an enticing prospect. Whether you’re choosing to stay local or jetting off to Spain this year, it’s important to make sure your pet is cared for while you’re away. See page 13 to read our guide on what to do with your pets when you go on holiday.

Just as we like to explore the great outdoors, our feline friends also love to exercise and play outside. On page 10, Nicky Trevorrow from Cats Protection shares tips to help you create a cat-friendly garden. As Nicky explains, ‘whether it is adding a pot of catmint to a small patio, or having a garden overhaul and re-design, a few simple changes can create a welcome space for you and your cat to enjoy.’

Finally, we were recently invited to Hall Farm in Norfolk, one of World Horse Welfare’s four UK Rescue and Rehoming Centres, to learn more about the charity’s vital work to improve the lives of horses and ponies across the world. Check out page 24 to read more about our visit and meet some of the charity’s equine residents.

Best Wishes
The PetFocus team
