Coco and Pud

I like to think Australia is a modern country because we are such a young country, however we still have exotic animal travelling circuses (don't even get me started on my ill thinking of them!), we are slow in tackling climate change and even with disgusting footage of our Aussie cattle being tortured overseas we still allow those animals to be packed onto ships and sent to be so cruely slaughtered. Oh and by 'we' I don't mean 'me'.

Ok my little animal rights rant is getting off track (sometimes I can't help myself), this post is actually about luxury pet products! Being so far away from everywhere else in the world sometimes sets limits for us. I desperately want a set of Urban Pet Haus Wave Perch shelves (as seen in I HAVE CAT) for my kitties, but due to ridiculous shipping costs, they can only send me the small one. (I'm still working on that though, I have to have these!!!) I managed to get a Pei Pod sent to me, but only after paying A LOT for postage (so much that I'm embarrassed to mention it here) and there's still that Kitty Ball Cat Bed from Refined Feline that I'm pining over...

Got (at a cost!)

While pining over the Kitty Ball Cat Bed I managed to find somewhere in Sydney that actually sells them!!! However at this stage, Sarah, who owns Coco and Pud, still only has it in white and will be getting the bamboo one (pictured above) some time next year. So all is not lost there! Even though I have to wait, I WILL be getting one!

Coco and Pud was founded in March, 2011. The concept came when founder and owner Sarah Matley purchased her new kitten “Pud” and had trouble finding luxury and designer cat products in Australia or online. "Our aim is to be more than just your average pet store, Coco and Pud is a fashion destination for your cat and dog. We offer an extensive collection of the finest luxury pet accessories for your pampered pooch or your fancy feline. Whether you have a spoilt kitten, small or large dog, we have the accessories to make your four legged friend a star!" Click here to check out all the other cool things in store. They also have a FB page!

So, now I'm on the waiting list for a bamboo Kitty Ball Cat Bed, and Sarah has been very helpful with my inquiry into this. I'm also about to purchase the Rattan Igloo Cat Bed, also by Refined Feline - I can actually go and PICK IT UP, which seems so foreign but which I'm so excited about! I just love cat furniture that doubles as modern human furniture too! Will do a follow up/review on this when I get it in a week or so...


I also have the Calypso Cat Scratcher on my wish list...


I'm just so glad that I finally have somewhere I can get things that aren't tacky for my cats! Thank you Sarah! Or maybe we should be saying thank you Pud, the kitten who started it all...
