It was mentioned on the BBC this morning. Didn't mention she was also PS for sick animals.

Thank you all, and the same to you :)
Most people in Wales, including myself, had never heard of it until recently, but now Wales and Welsh things are experiencing a sort of revival.
These days you can get cards to send to your partner/spouse etc for St Dwynwen's Day, like you can get them for the English St Valentine. It has become very popular here.

I hope your furry friends will be fine Janey :)

At least the sub-zero temperatures have gone Meadowland :) Roll on spring !
