Hot Dogs and Hot Mogs

When you’re feeling a bit cold and sorry for yourself and a little cat snuggles into your lap the world is a happy place. My cats are real lap-cats but as is typical of cats, only on their terms. One of them in particular has an obsession with sitting on the back of the sofa or on my pillow trying to eat my hair. I have no idea why, I assure you I do wash it.

I’m sure Fudge would just sit there and keep me warm. But that’s because he’s a Hot Mog filled with wheat and lavender and isn’t overcome by strange hair-related desires. He also won’t mind being put in the microwave to warm him up, whereas I’m told that’s a real no-no with normal cats.

I’m quite scared of dogs but I could cope with one of these Hot Dogs sitting on me. You can choose from Rufus the handsome dachshund,

Daisy the good bulldog,

Bernie the willful greyhound,

Prince the charming chihuahua or Jack the ungainly Airedale.

These radiating creatures are designed and made by Emma Henderson, her company Showpony make beautiful and quirky products from a studio in the East End of Glasgow. Their screenprinting workshops look fun, if I didn’t live 400 miles away I’d definitely try to attend one.
