We were delighted to be asked to share some tips on how to keep your pet healthy and safe, recently, with Wayfair, and we were able to share some of our tips for keeping human food loving cats (ahem, I am looking at you Layla) from eating things they shouldn’t that could make them very […]

Cat food for picky pussycats…

If you read this blog, you know that we have two cats, who are very different from each other. Layla is older, now, aged nearly 10, and has some immune system issues, and a slightly delicate stomach. She tends to have a penchant for human food, which we try not to encourage too much (ahem) […]

Top Care Tips for Cats…

Having a pet is a big responsibility. We are required to look after them properly. People often call cats and dogs their fur babies. It is a fitting term as they require a similar amount of love and care; just in different ways. It is such a fun and rewarding thing to do, though. Do […]

It’s time… 

We can deny it no longer. We can bear it no longer (well, when I say we, I mean LSH mostly, because he’s the one who mostly deals with it because I often pretend to be asleep, ssssh, don’t tell him) when at 3am, the cats decide that their need to be let out to […]

So, my almost 6 year old (he tells me that, he refuses to be “just five” any more) announced recently that he wants a gecko for a pet, for his birthday. He wants to get a terrarium, set it up and keep a gecko, or two, in there.  I had less than normal pets as […]

Pets & Fireworks…

I love a good firework display. The colours, the bangs and sparkles. I’m not a kill joy, by any means.  There are certain times of the year when you know there are going to be fireworks set off, in your area. Either publicly arranged displays, or privately in people’s gardens. New Year’s Eve being one […]

What the cat’s want for Christmas…

So the humans are getting excited about something called Christmas. We have no idea what it means, but it seems to involve people coming to the house, a tree, sometimes a real one, sometimes a plastic one, appearing in the living room, covered in lights, and sparkly things, which we are not allowed to attack […]

Humans are silly

Jasper and Layla here. We have catnapped the blog for a few minutes to have a rant.  Humans are silly, in fact they are downright weird, and frankly, a bit annoying sometimes.
