WHAT’S new, pussycat? The Hepper Pet Pod is. This upmarket cat cave is a stylish piece of furniture for the discerning cat, offering a semi- enclosed secure space to snooze or watch the world go by.
It sits off the ground on a fashionable steel frame and provides a cosy hideaway.
With cats sleeping away most of their lives, it’s the ultimate in a luxury bed with a view. A pad of sherpa fl eece lines the moulded pod and the lid can be removed in hot weather to ensure a cool cat.
The Hepper Pet Pod ( below) is named after the designer’s cat, who in turn is named after Audrey Hepburn.
There are developments in the canine world too, in an area very close to the heart of most dogs – food.
