Purrfect present

Waffles has been our cat since May and he has impressed all who have met him mightily in the seven months he's been living with us, judging by the presents he received.

Cian and Babs knew that our tired tabby likes to spend a lot of his time on the sofa. Now he can snuggle up to the beautiful Mog cushion cover from one of my design heroes, Donna Wilson.

His dining area has also been transformed with this gorgeous Tigrito Cat Bowl by Miriam Mirri for super fun Italian design brand Alessi, which he also received from Cian and Babs.

DIFFERENT KITS: The Tigrito Cat Bowl also comes in blue and yellow. 
Previous arrangements included old plastic trays which once housed microwave meals and unsatisfactory double bowls, making throwing out less than desirable fresh cat food a chore and resulted in dry food falling all over the place after an enthusiastic dining experience.

Miriam Mirri has also designed the Lula and Lupita dog bowls and Mio cat bowl for Alessi (photographed below). Alessi products are available from Arnotts and Stock in Dublin.

Update: I think you may have to order the pet bowls online as I'm not sure they're available in Irish stores. However, I could be corrected on this. Alessi sells them, as does Amazon.
