Rosewood Pet Stages Catnip Chew Mice by Petstages
5.0 out of 5 stars Best toy to date, 5 May 2013
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.

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… Read more
