These lovely, modern doughnut beds by Bingley & Marge look like a cat’s idea of snuggle heaven. I’d be tempted to buy one for myself, but sadly I’d never be able to squeeze into it – my contortionist skills just aren’t up to the job.
Bingley & Marge beds are handmade from contemporary fabrics, and are equipped with lovely, squishy fleece-covered cushions, for maximum cat-appeal. The beds are available in a range of ten different fabrics, with a couple of different fleece options. Each bed has a concealed zip in the base so that the cushion insert can be easily removed prior to machine washing the bed at 30°C.
Sizes: XS – 50cm x 45cm; S – 60cm x 55cm; L – 80cm x 75cm. Priced at £38.50 – £89.99. Bingley & Marge also offer a Bespoke Service, should you want to choose your own fabric, or if you require a different sized bed.
While you’re at it, check out the Bingley & Marge About page and the story of Bingley the dog – I defy you to read this through to the end without welling-up!

My cats are judging you so be nice – never a truer word spoken! This typographical print by cat lover and UK Etsy seller, Prints of Heart, is available in sizes 15cm x 10cm for £4.50 and 20cm x 25cm for £10.00. (A downloadable version of this print is also available upon request, priced at £3.00.)
Cheshire & Wain are purveyors of luxury leather safety collars for the UK’s pampered pusscats. The company is the brain child of Londoner, Sonja Farell, who was inspired to create her range of high-end collars by her own pampered puss, the beautiful Mr Percy Wells (Percy to his friends).
At first glance, the collars appear to be of the standard (and dangerous!) buckle fastened variety, but a closer inspection reveals a discreetly placed safety catch (as demonstrated by Mr Percy Wells above and below). Nifty, no?
Cheshire & Wain Colour Pop Collars (see top photo) are available in a swathe of contemporary hues. Each collar is made from vegetable tanned Italian leather, and incorporates a brass buckle and bell, in addition to the discreet safety catch. Priced from £35.00.
Please note: these collars are not suitable for kittens or cats weighing less than 2.5kg, as the safety release buckle will only open under pressure from weights of 2.5kg or more.
Cheshire & Wain also produce these two brass animal skull collar charms, which I absolutely love – they’d make great key rings or pendants too!
Bat Skull Charm and Raven Skull Charm, available for £19.00 each.

The Little Arena Pet Pod by Taiwanese pet design company, Ibiyaya, is a cat den/bed combo available in three contemporary colours. During the winter months your cat will love to watch the world go by from the cosy interior of the Pet Pod den. But come summer, when even the most determined heat-seeking moggy may appreciate some extra ventilation, the Pet Pod can be easily converted into an open cat bed by unzipping the top.
The cat-savvy designers of the Pet Pod have provided a nice, wide entrance, which gives panoramic views of the surrounding area – important for nervous cats who like to be able to see what’s going on around them, and for multi-cat households where ambushing can be a problem. The Pet Pod also has three holes at the rear, which provide both extra ventilation and ample opportunities to survey human servants for signs of weakness that can be exploited to further the ongoing feline quest for World Domination.
The Little Arena Pet Pod is made from waterproof EVA foam, with a wipe-clean cover, and comes with a comfy fleece cushion. Measurements: W52cm x H30cm (there’s no depth measurement provided).
The Little Arena Pet Pod is available in the UK from Pet Planet, and is currently on offer for £29.99 (RRP £39.99).
Eek! An imposter!
