Why am I charged VAT?

VAT is charged on all goods sold within the UK. We do not add VAT, we merely show you a breakdown in your cart. An item at £5 on the website will shows as £4.17 plus vat in your cart. We want to be upfront about all costs and will only ever charge the price on the website

How do I know you are a genuine company? Do you drop ship goods

Have a look at our warehouse pictures and youTube videos. These are purposely not edited, they are genuine pictures and videos of our storage areas and products. Real life videos of the products. Our food storage areas are temperature controlled purpose built. Our toys are in concrete floor double skin buildings where there is no risk of damp. Areas are sealed away from birds, vermin and wildlife. The only goods drop shipped are cages due to the over sized boxes and the need for a pallet courier. EVERYTHING else is right here. Order placed before 1pm delivered next working day.


The water turns colours when my pet drops toy pieces in it, is this safe?

Absolutely! It is because we use animal safe food colourings on the toys, they are water based hence they turn your pets water (and sometimes your pets) a different colour when wet


Why don`t you ship to my country?

It is either due to a high carriage charge or customs related reasons


Why am I still being charged carriage even though I am over the free carriage threshold?

It is because you need to spend the set amount on goods, ie if carriage is free over £69 so you need £69 of actual goods not inc shipping.
