It’s been 3 months now since we moved office and despite a big tub full of toys, Milly and Poppet are still amusing themselves with pieces of string that came wrapped around the new office furniture. It kept them somewhat entertained, and it certainly kept me entertained watching them – especially when they had opposite [...]

The sheer cuteness of African Grey‘s stationery is a great choice to brighten someone’s day. Each hand-drawn piece is made to order, then printed using nothing other than environmentally-friendly papers and envelopes. With so many whimsical and adorable little faces, how could you resist. In addition to greetings cards, gift tags, prints and calendars, you’ll find [...]

Halloween is just around the corner and there’s just enough time to get a scary costume for your pet….but wait, not all pets like a scary costume!

Really it’s very smart – to get the right shaped bowl for your dog or cat. Cats don’t like to feed with their whiskers touching the bowl and it’s not good for your dog to be walking around with messy after dinner dog ears. So, I’ve heard of wide whiskered bowls before, not that either [...]
