I share my life with Bella (Lhasa Apso), Basil (Shih Tzu), Satinka (Shorthaired Tabby), Aslan (Shorthaired Tabby),  Finley (Guinea Pig) (as well as his best friend Willoughby who sadly passed away just before opening our online shop but you will see him in some of our photos thorough the website) as well as a flock of cheeky parrots.

My aim is to provide quality enrichment, healthy treats and natural supplements and products as well as a service to provide healthy wholefood nutrition plans with a particular focus on felines to help you help your pets thrive
