A big thank you to everyone that voted for PretaPawte in the Etsy Fashion For Pets Poll. We are so please to have been voted in the Top 10 and to be featured in the Etsy Member's Choice Gift Guide with our Retro nest green cat collar

Its been a big week this week with lots going on and today I am please to announce the winner of our facebook giveaway, Lauren who chose the PretaPawte Pressed Flower Dog Collar as her favourite. Congratulations Lauren you collar will be in the post soon.

As most of our blog followers would be aware we got Alvin from the Cat Protection Society in Enmore in the middle of last year and not only is he now the most spoilt cat that ever lived (not that he'd admit it) but he has also has he changed our lives and brought us so much joy (not to mention a reason to make collars)

So with Alvin in mind its time again to say thanks to the Cat Protection Society for looking after Alvin and many other kittens and cats before they find their forever homes and for the next two weeks for every cat collar sold in our etsy store PretaPawte will give $1 to the Cat Protection Society.

The Difference Between Dogs and Cats

Ever Wondered what the difference was between dog's and cats?

A dog thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pat me, and take good care of me... They must be Gods!

A cat thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pat me, and take good care of me... I must be a God!

Its so true in our house there is only one God his name is Alvin and he can do no wrong.

Below are some pet bed's that I found on etsy that are sure to make any cat feel like they are in heaven..not that they need any encouragement.

Etsy Finds

With the weather warming up (well did it really ever get that cold here?) its time to think summer wardrobe.

Last years t-shirts are looking a little worse for wear so I have treated myself to a couple of new ones which I discovered at Xenotees on etsy. Lets just hope that these ones are strong enough to deal with Alvin's Talons.

The only down side is that now I have to sit back and wait for my present in the post.
