A local tabby and white cat has been chosen to star in Pets at Home’s new sponsorship campaign for Animal Planet.

Jack, 2, whose owners live in Oxhey Avenue, Watford, was chosen from thousands of entries to appear in the advert, which is being aired before and during the Vets and Pets programmes on Animal Planet.

The advert focuses on flea advice and will feature of other shows including Bondi Vet, Canopy Cat Rescue and My Cat from Hell.

Owner Alice Byrne said: “I cannot believe that Jack was chosen to star in the new Pets at Home campaign.

“We were both extremely excited to see the clip and hope that the millions of people watching it enjoyed it as much as we did.”
