What with picking up some additional Crazy in my life of late, I recently introduced myself to the experience of online shopping.
Or the odd item I’ve picked up here and there.
I’m talking I did a Proper Shop. A grocery shop.
It’s all very exciting, although I’m still awaiting delivery of my first order.
I realise this is not a ‘new’ thing and it is something that many have experienced previously, and, indeed, experience on a regular basis.
I was unaware, however, that you could also do the same for your pet shopping.
Again, not a one off item here and there, or specialised thingies, but an entire grocery shop just for your pets!
It’s like your ‘standard’ online grocery shops, except instead of tampons, toilet paper and breakfast cereals, it’s things like cat and dog foods, but without the home brand stuff. Just the premium stuff.
Unlike most pet shops, and the pet aisle in the supermarket, Pet Circle has everything your cats, dogs, fish, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, reptiles and other pets need.
From food to cleaning up mess, keeping pets warm, giving them something other than the couch to ruin, toys, collars, tanks, cages, health and, oh, everything you need, really.
‘Tis also delivered, much like other online shopping orders, to your door, with free delivery for orders over $99 (conditions apply), and supported by a lovely, Australian based customer service team.
The other super cool thing is Pet Circle offers a unique subscription based service, so you can create your own, personalised orders on either a monthly basis, or along a specific timeline you create yourself.
Set-and-forget has got to be good.
I wish I could do the same with buying food for my kids. Set up regular delivery of two minute noodles and a tin of Milo at regular intervals throughout the year (week?) and we should be fine.
And that one time where the goldfish was ceremoniously dumped into the loo, where it immediately and miraculously resurrected itself. I think we’re all still recovering from that one. Except for the fish. It was returned to its watery habitat, where it persisted in living for a further three days then giving it all up as a lost cause and dying. Permanently.
On that happy note, having your pet paraphernalia delivered at intervals that suit you means less time wandering around pet care warehouses, and more time playing and running around with (or after) your best friend.
That sounds like much more fun!
