My Purrfect date night with Izzy and Whiskas cat casseroles

Back when Thomas and I moved into our first home together, we knew that we wanted a cat. Shortly after we saw a friend was going to have a litter of kittens soon and we promptly put our name down for the cat that would become Izzy! For several years it was just Izzy and us before Jasmine joined our pet family too! Then we had a baby, in 2016, and having pets was no longer all I had to keep me busy while working from home.

Taking my cat to the vet for an emergency

I’ve been a cat owner since 2010. Izzy came to join our family back in 2010 when we first moved in to our flat together. Izzy was offered to us free, by an old friend of my husband, right at a time we were debating getting a pet. It seemed like fate. Later on we learned that Izzy has a big heart problem, and a heart murmur that is at the top end of the severity grades. Anyway, this has meant numerous expense over the years (as she was born with the condition it couldn’t be insured) but we love her so we soldier on. Recently I had my first experience of taking my cat to the vet for an emergency.

Our Purrfectbox Review

My regular readers may remember that recently we received a Purrfectbox for our cats, Izzy and Jazz. We’ve been cat owners for 6 years now, when we received Izzy. Jazz joined us 4 years ago and they’ve been almost silently hating each other ever since. Despite this I still buy them lots of treats regularly and I never give up on my quest to make them friends. Playing with new toys regularly can keep my girls from fighting overnight. This makes for a better sleep for me and a more harmonious life for us all! Today I’m sharing my Purrfectbox Review with you and talking about this subscription box service.

Purrfectbox Review & Purrfectbox voucher code

We’ve got two lovely cats, Izzy and Jazz. I say lovely, really I mean complete sods. They fight, they hiss, they chew things and they love to scratch the edges of our sofas and our bed. Still, despite this they give nice cuddles and they aren’t complete arseholes. Rewarding them from time to time is something that I really enjoy. When the folks at Purrfectbox got in touch, to offer us a box, I couldn’t pass it up! My girls love to have new toys to play with and anything that keeps them from wrecking our home is good with me. Here is our review of the Purrfectbox.

Cats make great companions

Before I had my daughter I found that working from home could be lonely sometimes. Thankfully we have two cats, Izzy and Jasmine. We got them both as kittens, one purchased and one in need of a home taken in by us. Our girls are 6 (tomorrow!) and 3 and we absolutely love them – despite them both having very different personalities.
