As February is Pet Dental Health Month we thought we'd share this Special Offer from our partner VioVet: OraFresh Hygiene Paste dor dogs and cats.
was £7.49
now £6.99 until 31/03/18

As stated on VioVet website:

"OraFresh™ is a gentle and palatable oral hygiene paste containing mild polishing beads and a complex of naturally occurring enzymes involved in:

Reducing bacteria which cause bad breath and dental disease.

Breaking down and removing plaque.

Maintaining overall mouth health.

The highly palatable poultry flavour makes it a pleasant and easy experience for you and your pet. As an alternative to toothpaste, it can be used with or without brushing, and may be added to food or onto a paw if applying directly into the mouth is not possible."

I must add that I have never used the above product but I have used the following to clean Athena's teeth: ViVirbac CET Enzymatic Toothpaste for Dogs & Cats

However, Athena will only lick the paste and won't allow me to touch her teeth with it, not even with my finger. I think she loves the fishy taste, even though she prefers chicken when it's food! I shall have to persevere :)

From the VioVet website:

"A palatable, mildly abrasive toothpaste, suitable for regular use on cats and dogs to promote optimal dental appearance and hygiene. Contains active ingredients formulated to target plaque-forming bacteria and eradicate it, thereby improving the overall health of your pet's mouth. May reduce the chances of tooth decay and gum disease when used under normal conditions."

5 Catio Ideas Your Indoor Cat Will Love

5 Catio Ideas Your Indoor Cat Will Love

I am an indoor kitty and for a few years now Mum has been going on about how she will build me a catio once we move to a new house (which at the moment doesn't look like is happening anytime soon).

She's been looking at catios and cat enclosures online but they seem to be really expensive. Building one would be cheaper but she's not into DIY. There are also companies that will do it for you but again, maybe too expensive for us as I am not earning the money I should be as a cat model, influencer or ambassador. Yeah, it seems I will never be a famous kitty like some :(

Nevermind, I have all I need in life to be happyπŸ’š

So, here is a small selection of catio and enclosure ideas Mum found on Amazon UK. Now, if I had one of those it would be just pawsome!  If you have an indoor cat and want to let them safely outdoors for some fresh air, now is the time to start looking because spring is just around the corner!

The following are affiliate links so that means that if you make a purchase via them we will earn a small commission, just enough to buy me some treats maybe?

This fully enclosed 1.8m x 1.8m x 1.95m cat run allows your cat to enjoy the outdoors in safety. It's made from heavy-gauge welded steel mesh and the attractive green coating helps it blend in well with your garden.

Walk on Fire to Help Animals! #CharityTuesday

Could you walk on fire to help animals?

This March, Wood Green The Animals Charity is looking for inspiring individuals to take on a truly unforgettable event - The Wood Green Firewalk.

"On the eve of Friday 2nd March 2018, at our Godmanchester centre, these brave souls will walk across red-hot embers barefoot. Their incredible feat will help to offer thousands of pets a second chance. No previous experience or minimum fitness is required!  
We're looking for brave people to join #TeamWoodGreen on the 2nd March for our sponsored walk across hot coals to help pets in need. 
With your help, we can make this an evening to remember whilst raising much-needed funds for Wood Green and the pets we care for."

The Wood Green Firewalk Event 


As most of you know, I was rescued by Wood Green and Mum came along to the London centre to adopt me, and the rest is history. So as ever I am doing my bit to help raise awareness and help promote other rescue cats in need of rehoming.

Here is a handsome mancat from the Godmanchester centre who is looking for his forever home πŸ’š


(Photo: Wood Green)

Max is a very handsome boy who needs to live somewhere rural where there are no other cats around. He is the outdoorsy type and would prefer to spend as much time as possible in the great outdoors. However, he does also love the human touch and lots of food!

Think you have the purrfect home for lovely Max? Then please view his profile to find out more!

But first, here he is in action 😻



All proceeds from A Forever Home For Athena will be donated to the following charities:

Wood Green The Animals Charity
Greek Cat Welfare Society
Cats Protection



More homeless pets looking for forever homes can be found on my Mum's Pinterest Pet Rescue board.

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. As a rescue kitty myself I want to help other rescues find their forever home, so each week on Charity Tuesday I share adoptable cats from Wood Green, the Animals Charity (which is where I was rescued) and some other charities dear to our hearts. Mum and I are so grateful to Wood Green because without them we would never have found each other! Please note however that this post does contain some affiliate links. This means if you click on the Amazon links to purchase any of the items featured, I will receive a small affiliate commission. We are not affiliated with any charity mentioned in this post.

Sunday Selfie on the Bed

Happy Sunday!

Here I am on Mum's bed but it's my bed too. A nice big double bed for me and Mum. Of course, I make sure I take up most of it! Mum sleeps in the fetal position mostly and I curl up against the back of her knee/thigh. Sometimes, I sleep against her inner thigh, which involves her having to sleep more on her back with the other leg stretched out.

I know it can be uncomfortable for her but I'm sure she doesn't mind as long as I'm there to comfort her. She hates sleeping alone and sometimes says she wishes she had more cats to share the big bed with but I say NO!

What are your sleeping positions with your human or other pets? And humans, how do you sleep with your pets if you share the bed with them?

As always, we are joining our pals from The Cat on my Head for the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop!
