Cat Hampurr are an exciting new company who are about to launch a monthly UK subscription box service dedicated to ensuring that our feline friends are as pampered as they feel they ought to be.
Here’s the deal: subscribers pay a set fee and in return receive a monthly box filled with lovely cat goodies, which will include a mixture of treats, food, toys, grooming and health products.
So far, so good. But here’s the best bit: the Cat Hampurr team are currently ‘working really hard to source products which are interesting, innovative and fun for both pets and owners’, and which aren’t available from mainstream online retailers or high street pet stores – so your cat could end up with some really novel little pressies on a monthly basis.
If all this is sounding like something your cat wouldn’t want to miss out on, you need to hop over to the Cat Hampurr site and sign up to receive your invitation. The service will be launching in April, and the Cat Hampurr team are busy gathering feedback from potential customers to help make sure that the first hampers sent out meet with our cats’ high expectations and exacting standards. Which I’m sure will earn them a big paws up from the UK’s mollycoddled moggies!

The Boo range of cat trees is by French pet products company, Martin Sellier. This stylish modern cat furniture is made from bamboo, with sisal-covered poles and removable cotton cushions.
Naturellement, the Boo range n’est pas available dans le UK. But, fear not, mes amis, French online retailer, Pecheur, stocks most of the pieces – with free UK delivery for purchases over £59.00.
Above left: Step Boo £114.40 (40 x 40 x 77cm); above right – Wheel Boo £79.39 (40 x 40 x 50cm).
Left: Big Boo £92.37 (40 x 40 x 100cm); right – King Boo £131.35 (40 x 40 x 109cm). Psst: if – like me – you’re in possession of a highly unsophisticated sense of humour, it’s well worth clicking on the Big Boo link for the hilarious typo alone.
Left: Boo Cool £82.03 (44 x 35 x 40cm); right – Boo Drive £92.37 (40 x 35 x 85cm).
The Boo range is currently on special offer at Pecheur and the offer ends tomorrow (presumably at midnight). So the prices I’ve listed are correct at the time of publishing, but will rise by around 10% when the offer finishes. D’accord? Bon!
Skelly Fish are crocheted by Claire Davenport from 100% cotton yarn and have catnip filled heads. The ribs and knots on these colourful fish are great for biting and chewing, while the tails provide a handy grip for hind paws during serious wrestling matches.
The fish have been thoroughly tested by Claire’s two cats for ‘catnipiness, bitey-tuggy-fun and claw-resistance’, and have scored very highly on all counts!
Skelly Fish are available for £8.00 each from Claire’s Folksy shop The Hookery.

British designer Sophie Allport has just launched her Cat Collection, which features black cats and white fish bones on a dark olive background. The collection includes loads of lovely homeware items, a few bits and bobs of stationery and also fabric by the metre.
Prices are pretty reasonable, starting at £6 for a Cat Tea Towel, and the rather dinky Cat Egg Cosy.
The Cat Collection range is very comprehensive – 30 pieces in total – and I’ve been trying to decide which items I like best. After much deliberation I’ve awarded the Cat Ironing Board Cover (£18.00) and the Cat Carrier Bag Holder (£8.00) the dubious honour of being My Favourites.
Not the most glamorous of objects, I know, but undeniably practical; and just you try finding alternative attractive cat versions of said objects. It’s impossible, I tell you. Impossible!
