The company was impressed by Maisie’s dedication to her animals at such a tender age. Maisie has numerous chickens that she helps feed, clean and cuddle. She also has cats that she grooms and always pays particular attention to their water bowls so they don’t get thirsty. She also has fish that she feeds and helps clean out.

After winning the competition, Maisie was invited into the new store to see what goes on behind the scenes. She was also given £100 in Pets at Home vouchers.

Her mum Laura said: “Maisie had an absolutely brilliant time and this was the highlight of her school holidays.”
