Purrfect Box – Review


The lovely folks at Purrfect Box sent us one of their monthly boxes of cat goodies. Molly was very enthusiastic and had her head stuck in within moments of me opening it for them. The box contains a great selection of treats and toys for the kitties.

It’s always fun opening parcels, even when the parcels are for the cats not me. It’s even more fun when you don’t know what you’re going to get.

Full details of all the items are on the Purrfect site

The toys are a winner because they have feathers on them and Molly *loves* feathers. Arty played with the one on the spring too. I have to make it wobble and then they bop it about. It’s much fun. I’m pretty sure I heard the ball with the feather on begin chucked around the hall way in the middle of the night by one of the little cats who should have been asleep 😀

It’s great to have some treats included that Pixie can eat. The fishy treats don’t contain any grains (which most treats do) so Pixie was super happy to gobble them up. Molly and Arty said the others are yummy too.

We’ve had the vitamin paste before and they all love it, we give them some as a bed time treat and they all gather round for it, eager to get theirs. It’s super cute!

The only thing we probably won’t use is the litter scoop with bags. We use a flushable litter and have a scoop that works well with it. Fret not, it won’t be wasted, I’ll give it to my local rescue. I would have preferred something more fun for the cats rather than such a functional item but I expect other people would appreciate it.

When we were on holiday I really needed a bookmark for my book about Vikings. I usually use a kindle so hadn’t thought of doing them before. I know lots of people still use paper books so it’s about time I designed a bookmark.

I also thought I’d show the colouring process of my doodles.


Molly Day!


A year ago today, a week after we met her, we brought Molly home with us.

Molly came from Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary. The week between first meeting her and bringing her home seemed like the longest ever! I was *so* excited.

It barely took her a minute to make herself at home and start exploring. We started introducting her to Pixie and Arty slowly but it was soon clear that they thought she was ok and was running about with them within a few days. Pixie took a little longer to warm up to her than Arty but now they are always up to no good together, exploring outside and sunbathing on the patio.

She was pretty small when we adopted her but she hasn’t really grown that much. She is only just bigger than Pixie (who is a teeny tiny cat) and I don’t think she’ll be growing any more.

I can’t talk about Molly’s first year without mentioning that dreaded 5 days when she was missing after getting stuck in a neighbour’s attic. It was such an awful time and we feared for the worse. It turns out she was just on the other side of our wall, stuck in some loft space. I’ve never been so happy to see her as I was when we finally found her. Thankfully she has learnt her lesson and not got lost since.

Molly is such a mischief cat. She will climb anything and everything. I’m amazed our curtains are all still intact. She’s also pretty clumsy so if we hear a crash, it’s usually her.

She loves her hugs, especially in the evenings when she likes to sprawl across Daz and I as we watch TV. She’s so cute and adorable.

We love this little cat so much, adopting her was one of the best things we’ve ever done.
