The “unboxing” video has long been a blogger staple and yet I have never tried it – probably because I am older than yer maw and back when I started blogging we didn’t even have computers, never mind You Tubes. However, since I promised the lovely people behind Cat Hampurr – a subscription box for your furry housemates – that I’d do something special to mark the end of/a hiatus to my subscription, I thought it would be a laugh.
Cat Hampurr is one year old this month, and works just as you’d imagine – order a one-off box or subscribe for a selection of cat food, treats, toys and hygiene products for as little as £6 (plus postage) a month. Sign up for a box every month and it’ll cost you £15.90 with your postage included which, as I mention in the video, is easy enough for us cat fans to spend over the course of a month picking up little treats for our pals anyway! It’s all premium brands – no Whiskas here – and over the past year we’ve been introduced to now firm favourites like Thrive 100% real food treats, Plague Rats and Cheshire & Wain. We also, once, got sent catnip-filled tea bags shaped like little mice, which Scooter and the Big Man were completely uninterested in but which amused me for a good fortnight.
We’re giving the boxes a paw-se (sorry) for now while we rebudget after the house move, but Cat Hampurr are a lovely young company and I highly recommend the service. Take a look at my unboxing video, and let me know if you like the sound of it.

his my new bed.
