I’ve always had cats, we lost one of ours last year and his brother is now 14 and (like all of us) misses him. So this summer, while the children were on holidays we adopted two rescue kittens. That’s them above, a black and white and a calico kitty! So in their honour, this year I am doing a Christmas gift guide for pets and their families.
Sniffe & Likkit grooming (aromatherapy oil scent based grooming products for dogs)
I seriously can’t tell you how nice these products smell – perfect for pet lovers! Sniffe & Likkit has just unleashed a new range of amazing ‘pet-scentric’ dog-pampering products. For the modern ‘pooch parent’, the luxurious shampoos, fragrances, balms and wipes are based on an all-natural aromatherapy oil scent and represent a gentler approach to dog grooming. With a focus on natural ingredients, each is specially formulated to be pH-balanced for dogs’ skin. Example product: ‘No Rinse Charming’ – a dry shampoo ‘powder shower’! This no-rinse-needed shampoo contains a unique blend of skin and fur-friendly powders selected for odour-neutralising and oil absorbing properties. All products are vegan-friendly and are priced between £7.00-£14.00. Available via Ocado, Fetch.co.uk and independent pet shops around the country and sniffeandlikkit.com.
