Friday Favourites - Pets

We're all aware that dogs are a man's best friend, but we think it's safe to say that the popular phrase should encompass all kinds of pets. Whether they purr or bark, pets are really special beings, considered to be family members. At The Amazing Blog, we couldn’t live without our four legged companions; they are always there for us, come rain or shine, so why not spoil them with some treats they will surely appreciate?

Pet Interiors' Rondo Stand will make your cat’s siestas even more fabulous. The designer cat tree, made with beautiful European cowskin and fleece, is developed for both rest and action. Not only will your cat have a comfortable spot to relax, but at a height of 80cm, it will also have a privileged view of its surroundings. And we all know curious cats like to keep their superior eye on things. The Rondo Stand is made to order, making it an exclusive piece of furniture, perfect for any cat lover's home. Put your cat on the pedestal it deserves with the Rondo Stand from Aristopaws, which you can buy here for £589.

wash the dogYou all know how passionate we are about natural beauty products, so were pleased to discover a natural grooming collection specifically created for dogs. Betty & Butch have an amazing range of shampoos and conditioners, including soaps formulated with different breeds and skin conditions in mind. We were particularly drawn to the Dandy Dog Soap - a masculine scented natural shampoo which thoroughly cleans both coat and skin. With anti-fungal and anti-bacterial ingredients like lavender, lemon and cedarwood, which also works to alleviate hair loss, your canine pal will be looking glossy and smelling fresh in no time.
