Meowing Heads

4 Sep

We all treat our kitties with great importance as we would our friends, family and children (let’s face it you, dear reader, would not be on a website called Katzenworld if not!). Oddly enough I see a lot of my fellow cat lovers who feed their pets any old supermarket food, and even scraps from the table. If you wouldn’t feed your children salt and grain pumped value sausages for example, why would you do the equivalent to your pet?

My furry one, Dexter, is named so due to the fact that he is a serial killer of mice. Seriously where he fits the pet food into his tummy with all of the London mice that he catches, I will never know!

I was very happy to allow him to test out the new Meowing Heads, as they only produce produce ultra-premium, 100% natural pet food. Each recipe is developed using only ingredients sourced in the UK and all contain a high percentage of protein, combined with fresh vegetables, fruits, added vitamins and probiotics for a cats health and wellbeing.

Dexter, absolutely loved the ‘gone fishin!’ wet food (well it was a bit of a novelty to him, given he usually eats dry) it was a way for me to give him wet food as a weekend treat without having to worry about the nutritional value. His fish breath afterwards however is something I will not describe!

The dried food looks and smells very much like fresh salmon, and while Dexter tried the kitten range (which he gobbled up very quickly due to its perfectly teeny-weeny spherical pieces) I think that the adult range would have gone down just as well.

It was so tasty that he took a nice long nap afterwards!

Christmas for Kitty

7 Dec

For us Brits, advent calendars are another one of those strange customs that we blindly follow each Christmas. I know some grown ups who still love to buy an advent calendar for themselves each year, myself included. Yet, it lacks the same element of excitement as a adult. Let’s face it, if we fancy a chocolate we can just go and buy some chocolate. After a quick calculation I realised that the average 26 year old has probably opened 575 little doors, and eaten 575 little chocolates in their lifetime. Less if you shared your calendars, and more if you stole chocolates from your siblings! And to those poor children who had the calendars with no chocolates, the ones with only pictures behind the door I can only imagine that as an adult you have given up on the ‘excitement’ altogether.
Dreamies have found the perfect solution – advent calendars for cats. At first I thought the calendar did not appear to be good value, if each door only housed one treat. However on closer inspection i realised that each door actually has approximately 10 treats inside, and on the 25th December your kitty will receive a really speedy wind up toy mouse. My cats both absolutely love this, they come running to the crinkle of cardboard and rub against my legs waiting for the little treats to be released. Thank you Dreamies, for putting a bit of excitement back into my advent calendar experience!

With prices from £2.99 in supermarkets and retailers such as Amazon it won’t break the bank either.

Verdict: A Purfect 10/10

Puurrfect Presents…

Chistmas Gift Guide

Puurrfect Presents…

If, like myself, you are addicted to the joy of giving at Christmas you will find just about any excuse to buy the perfect present for every member of your family. There is not a single aspect about the gifting process – whether it is giving or receiving, wrapping or unwrapping – that I do not love. Even looking at the neatly stacked gifts under the tree gives me a shiver of excitement. For pet lovers, Christmas is yet another excuse to spoil those furry little creatures that give their cuddles freely and can put a smile on even the grumpiest of faces.

One of the best gifts that I have found to date for cats is the cat play house from iwantoneofthose.com (http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/gifts/gifts/pet-gifts.list) For £14.99 you can order a plane, tank, Cadillac or fire engine, and the concept is a flat pack cardboard set that you can then slot together to build the play house for your cat (I presume the idea was borne from the fact that cats love jumping into cardboard empty boxes) Upon arrival, I was very surprised at how large (though flat) the box was, the whole set comprised of under 10 pieces, which is quite handy if you do not like the ‘fiddly bits’. It did take me about 20mins to put together, as my cat Cleo was already intrigued and tried to lend a helping paw. This in itself was a rather fun activity!

Checking it out...

Confused...

After building the plane, it did take me a while to coax Cleo in. As it has a hole in the bottom (which isnt really very accessible) and a hole in the top it did feel like the wings got in the way a little. In this sense I think Cleo, being quite a curvaceous cat, would have been better suited to the Cadillac or fire truck. That said after throwing a few treats in there she quickly overcame her fears and was jumping in and out happily.

The plane now sits in our living room and Cleo loves it. I can imagine on Christmas day it will keep her occupied and away from our presents (especially if we throw our used wrapping paper in there!)

...Pro!

As an added extra, I am told by my partner that it also makes a great hat….

Verdict: A very fun 9/10

Upside down it makes an excellent hat.
