It is with great excitement that I announce our November sponsor for our Moggy of the Week competitions – Present Purrfections.
PRESENT PURRFECTIONS FOR CAT (and dog) GIFTS
Set up by Julie Martin-Davy, a true cat lady at heart, although she denies the crazy part (lol), Present Purrfections is an online shop selling quality gifts for cat – and dog – lovers.
The online retailer has been selling gifts for cats since its inception in 2014, and has been shortlisted for a number of awards , including being one of only eight Scottish businesses to be chosen as one of the 2015 Small Business Saturday Campaign’s #smallbiz100 finalists and making it onto Scotland’s Business Award’s “Best Fife New Business 2016” list.
Present Purrfections was also a finalist for the Scottish Independent Retail Awards, in the “Bespoke Retailer” category.
WHY IS THIS CAT LOVER’S GIFT SHOP SO SUCCESSFUL?
Simply because the owner, Julie, is a cat-lover. She herself has two kitties call Pip and Squeak (aka the Pipsqueaks). The PipSqueaks are two mischievous rescue kitties and Julie agrees with My Moggies and Me’s motto that everyone should adopt from shelters whenever possible.
In fact, Present Purrfections wholeheartedly supports animal charities as Julie fundraises from time to time to donate to her nominated charity, Fife Cat Shelter. Over the course of the first year alone, Present Purrfections raised over £280 for the shelter.
When we asked her why she set up Present Purrfections, Julie said: “Now, I don’t know about you, but I found it hard to find quality cat and dog themed gifts. Ok, so I admit they were mostly gifts for myself but when I did try to find a gift for a friend it involved trawling the internet for hours. Then I had difficulty with making a decision because without being able to feel and touch the products, how was I to know if I was about to buy a quality gift? So when my husband left the army in 2014 I decided to open Present Purrfections to cater for others like me that wanted quality items related to cats and dogs that are ideal for every occasion – from birthdays, anniversaries and weddings to ‘just because’ presents.”
