Rosewood Pet Stages Catnip Chew Mice
Rosewood Pet Stages Catnip Chew Mice
Price: 3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Best toy to date, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our 14 week old kitten prefers these little mice to play with in preference to other bigger or more expensive toys. They just fit nicely in her mouth so she can carry one around. They are fun to retrieve and they skid across the floor very well when patted. All in all, the perfect toy for a kitten!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful work station, 25 April 2011
This desk is large, well-thought out and robust. It offers plenty of useful storage space with the hatch for monitor and speakers giving the whole desk top for writing or sorting on. The item comes flat packed, securely packaged. Two people and several hours are definitely needed to put the deskitem together, as the larger pieces are quite heavy. one piece had holes in the wrong places, but otherwise it went together quite easily. On the whole, good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new way to look at weeds, 25 Oct 2010
Wonderful story of the plants most of us either turf out or try to ignore!

Weeds can be immensely aggravating but they can also be incredibly beautiful and this book shows how they have stories of their own. I've been a Richard Mabey fan ever since Food For Free, and his scholarly-yet-romantic approach is somehow perfect for a subject like Weeds. Here is everything from Rosebay Willowherb, which grew in the bomb craters after the Blitz, to the work of artists and poets including John Clare, who is clearly a passion.

I love the personal stories peppered throughout the book. For instance, how Richard Mabey's neighbours mowed his `wildlife' verge while he and his wife were on holiday; how even the most die-hard lover of weeds has to take drastic action against ground elder.
