Earlier on in the summer Fifi went along to the official press screening of Nine Lives and she hasn’t stopped talking about the film ever since. You can have a look at the trailer on that post. She genuinely loved the film because of the cat body swop which seemed to inspire her- generating endless creative writing in her little notebook along those themes. The film is funny and heart-warming and to be honest, if you are a cat fan- as we are in our house then you’ll love it!
We were really thrilled to receive a Cats Protection Hamper to celebrate the release of the film. Our cat Jonny is from Cats Protection and we whole-heartedly support all the work that they do. Cats Protection is the UK’s leading cats’ welfare charity. St Albans & District Cats Protection officially became a local branch in October 2001. In the last three years alone they have homed over 350 cats and kittens.
The hamper was a fantastic treat and Jonny loved the Catnip carrot in particular. I think a copy of the Blue-ray or DVD with the hamper would be a fabulous Christmas gift for any cat lover. I’d be more than happy for sure!
