How do I know my cat really loves me?

National Love your Pet Day has come round again – it’s today for those of you who didn’t know! – and there’s one question on the tip of everyone’s tongue… what on earth can I get my cat and how do I know if they even care? 

They can be the surliest of lovers, cats. They don’t seem to like being picked up, nor do they come when you call. They don’t seem to show affection, not like dogs do anyway and yet the bond between cats and humans has been going for centuries.

So when Treads got in touch to see if I’d like to review a pair of their school shoes, complete with a one year guarantee, I was very intrigued.

What You Really Need for Back to School

The summer holidays are nearly over, I can’t quite believe how fast they’ve gone. With two weeks left until he’s back to school, well two weeks and a day, it really is time to get organised.

Now I’m guessing everyone has got uniform, shoes, labels and stationery etc. sorted. So I feel no need to talk about them, instead I’m going to talk about the things you really need but may have overlooked.
