Cat Beds for Cool Cats from Aslan’s Pad


Aslan’s Pad is a brand-spanking-new online boutique dedicated to providing the UK’s cats (and their humans) with some much-needed contemporary cat furniture.  The shop is currently stocking a diverse selection of cool cat beds, but Ellena Syrett, the brains behind Aslan’s Pad, has plans to increase her range of products and become the ‘one-stop shop for funky cat things’.

Above: Aslan’s Cat Bed ‘Birds’, £55.00.  Below: Sailor Boat Bed, £34.00.


Aslan’s Vintage Cat Bed, £59.00.


Ellena named her shop after Aslan, her cuddly Bengal (below).  Aslan is a very fussy cat, and for this reason is in charge of product testing: if a product passes the Aslan Test, then Ellena knows her customers will be happy with it too!


Monster Chunky Pet Bed, £38.00.


You can check out the rest of the Aslan’s Pad range of cat beds here.  Aslan’s Pad is currently offering free delivery to the UK mainland.

I’m looking forward to seeing which other products Aslan’s Pad will be stocking in the future.  There’s a cat exercise wheel on the horizon, and plans to start importing cool cat stuff from Europe and the US – I’ll keep you posted!

Giveaway! Win a ‘How to Photograph Your Cat’ Gift Box


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:

To enter the giveaway please leave a comment at the end of this post. Entries must be in before midnight on 30th June 2014.  Only one entry per person, please!  The five winners will be selected by a random electronic draw on 01/07/14 and notified by email. Each winner will receive one ‘How to Photograph Your Cat’ Gift Box.  Prize must be claimed within 14 days of notification by email, otherwise a new winner will be selected. Sorry, but this giveaway is only open to addresses within the UK!
