Discount Code for Cat Clocks by Jennie Wolf

Jennie from Big Bad Wolf Design has been in touch following my post about her quirky and colourful cat clocks, to offer both a 15% discount code to Cool For Cats UK readers and a donation to the Celia Hammond Animal Trust for each clock purchased using the code.  So now you get to grab yourself a bargain and help out cats in need at the same time!  How cool is that?


To get your 15% discount, simply enter the code COOLFORCATS (valid until further notice) at the checkout at the Big Bad Wolf Design Etsy Shop.  Jenny will then donate 15% from the proceeds of each sale made using the discount code to the Celia Hammond Animal Trust (CHAT).

Violet, the inspiration behind Jennie’s cat clocks, is a rescue cat who Jennie adopted from CHAT in 2004.  Jennie is very keen to support CHAT as Violet has given the Wolf family so much pleasure over the years.

Violet is now 7 years old, but still the size of an adolescent kitten.  However, she doesn’t let her diminutive stature hold her back in life – she’s very street-wise and is the boss of all the other cats in the neighbourhood.  Violet’s also a keen hunter and once brought home a pigeon nearly as big as herself!  Violet is a softie at heart though, and loves Jennie’s 3-year-old daughter so much that she makes sure she’s around  every night to sit with her at bedtime.  Aww!

Waiting room for low-cost veterinary care at the Lewisham Clinic

CHAT rescues and rehomes thousands of cats (and the occasional dog, rabbit and ferret!) every year.  The charity also provides low-cost neutering, vaccinations and veterinary care from its two London clinics in Lewisham and Canning Town.

CHAT is a charity very close to my own heart: my four cats were adopted from the Lewisham centre, and I also volunteer and foster for them.  Should you purchase one of Jennie’s cat clocks, I can assure you that you will be helping a charity which provides an invaluable service both to animals in need and pet owners who are on a low income….  So what are you waiting for?

Etsy Find – Ella Goodwin

Ella Goodwin is an illustrator and designer-maker whose work is very much influenced by her love of cats: kitties have been a constant in Ella’s life, and she’s inspired by their eccentric characters and independent spirit.

Ella Goodwin’s range of fine art prints and jewellery is available from her Etsy Shop, and Ella has very generously given Cool For Cats UK readers a 25% discount!  To claim your discount use the code PERCYCOOLFORCATS at the checkout – code is valid until 31/05/2012.

I’m a big fan of Ella’s work and featured some of her prints on Cool For Cats UK last year; and now here’s a chance to see some more of her range.

The serene Mermaid Cat – 8 x 12 inch glicee fine art print, priced at £9.51

A saucy minx modelling her Octini – 8 x 12 giclee fine art print, priced at £9.51

I have a real soft spot for Percy, who features frequently in Ella’s work.  Percy loves making things.  He’s particularly keen on knitting, sewing and crochet – so am I, which partly explains why I like him so much, but I also like the fact that he goes against gender stereotypes by embracing what are traditionally seen as female activities.

Percy hard at work on his Catsuit – 8 x 10 glicee fine art print, priced at £9.51

Percy is also available in soft toy form (priced at £11.41 ), or as a PDF pattern, if you fancy making your own (£2.53).  He pops up in Ella’s jewellery range too: Cat Necklace  (£12.68); Knitting Cat Brooch, made from laser cut wood (£9.51).


Ella has plans for a children’s picture book later in the year based around Percy making and doing, using nothing but his imagination and a few scraps.  The multi-talented Ella is also a costume maker, and plans to have some Percy fabric printed, which she will transform into dresses to add to her Etsy range.

Ella’s inspiration for Percy is her dad’s cat Persephone – who’s certainly a cutey. (Yes, Percy’s a boy and Persephone’s a girl, in case you were wondering!)

And now meet Tiger and Chewbacca, the two fluff-monsters that share Ella’s life.  Here they are seemingly defying the laws of gravity in a radiator bed!
