The How to Photograph Your Cat Gift Box was created by professional photographer, Sarah Loveland, and is aimed at people who want to get more from their digital point-and-shoot or camera phones and capture photos that even their cats will approve of.  Sarah has kindly given five lucky Cool for Cats UK readers the chance to win one of her boxes, and thus acquire millions of social media likes, follows, retweets etc., as their fabulous cat portraits become internationally renowned.  Or maybe just brighten up their Facebook pages with some decent cat pics – one can never post too many cat pics on one’s Facebook page, after all.

(To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment at the end of this post.  Entries must be in before midnight 30th June.)

Each box contains a set of five easy-to-follow lesson cards, which will unravel such mysteries as the exposure compensation setting,  teach you new techniques such as camera tilts and how to snap a cat on the move, and also how to ensure your pics are beautifully composed and well-lit.

Once you can handle your camera like a pro, you can take a look at the fold-out project sheet and have a go at the four tasks Sarah has dreamed up for you and your moggie models.  Plus, if you’re one of those well-organised types who actually gets round to printing their photos, there are four self-assembly cardboard frames and a mini-easel included in the box so that you can display your amazing cat portraits, and then encourage your friends and family to compliment you prolifically on your new-found photographic skills.  Sarah has even included a catnip mouse – cats are notoriously uncooperative after all, but, fortunately, also very receptive when it comes to bribery.

And now for some giveaway rules:

May Giveaway! Win a Litterlocker ll – the Ultimate Cat Litter Disposal System

litterlocker ll - ultimate cat litter disposal system

The lovely people from LitterLocker UK are kindly giving three lucky Cool for Cats UK readers the chance to win a LitterLocker II – the ultimate cat litter disposal system! (Find out how to enter the giveaway at the end of this post.)

litterlocker ll - ultimate cat litter disposal system

The LitterLocker II is designed to be used with clumping cat litter, and provides a convenient, completely odour-free method of storing cat poo and clumped litter for up to 2 weeks for one cat – which will save you a fair few trips to the dustbin while trying to hold a grocery bag in such a way that none of the soiled litter drops out through the safety holes!

The LitterLocker II is very easy to use – simply open the lid and drop your cat’s latest downloads into the bin, then pull the handle to allow the soiled litter to fall to the bottom of the bag, and release the handle to create an air-tight seal on the bag.

Here’s a useful video which demonstrates the whole procedure very nicely (lumps of coal are used as poo substitutes, so it’s safe to watch this if you’re eating!):

When the bag is full, you open the unit, cut the bag free and dispose of it, and then pull more film from the refill, tie a knot in the end to create a new bag and pull it to the bottom of the bin.  Each refill cartridge lasts for 2 months on average for one cat.  (Which saves an estimated 60 grocery bags.)

The LitterLocker II has a reasonably unobtrusive design, is lightweight and doesn’t take up much room – it measures W22cm x D23cm x H24cm.  It comes with a litter scoop (which sits neatly in a holder on the side of the unit) and your first refill cartridge.

I’ve never used a LitterLocker, but having read the Amazon UK Customer Reviews, I think I’ll treat myself to one – it’ll certainly be an improvement on my current Pedal Bin Liner in an Airtight Bread Bin system!

To find a LitterLocker II stockist in your area, check out LitterLocker.co.uk.  And if you’re planning a trip to the London Pet Show 2014 on the 17th and 18th May, you’ll be able to find LitterLocker UK on Stand 208 in the Cat Zone.
