Blue Peter: Our Pet Family
The Blue Peter pets are really important (and cute!) and along with our presenters they make up the Blue Peter family. Here we introduce you to our pets!
Socks and Cookie the Cats
Socks first appearance on the show was in January 2006 then Cookie joined the family in September 2007. Both are Ragdoll cats and they live in Hertfordshire with their owner.
Shelley the Tortoise
Shelley joined the team in 2004, she is the longest serving of all the current pets. Currently in her mid-twenties she is still quite young as the oldest tortoise on record lived to 188 years old. When she is not busy filming she lives with her family in London. She is a Mediterranean spur-thighed tortoise.
