MuLondon announces that all its exclusive, naturally moisturising skincare products are officially 100% vegan and registered by The Vegan Society.
Committing to a vegan lifestyle is usually a conscious choice for people who do not wish to exploit animals for food, clothing or cosmetics. This means that vegans do not eat animal products, do not wear clothes or accessories made from leather, wool or fur, and do not use cosmetic products with ingredients derived from the animal kingdom.

We've got some lovely neighbours. They have lived next door to us for probably getting on to eight or nine years. We don't really have enough in common to be friends, but we get along well and one thing we do share is a great love of our rescued pets. We have looked after each others animals when one of us goes on holiday and we often walk our dogs together. It's a nice arrangement.
So naturally, I was very sad for them when their sweet little cat died of pneumonia a couple of months ago. She was one of those animals who had grown bored with being ill-appreciated by a different owner and had decided to 'adopt' my neighbour about five or six years ago. I liked this cat because she had a Marge Simpson-like croak to her voice and whenever I was looking after her, she would speak sternly to me when I showed up to feed her, until that food was where she wanted it! She now lies buried at the back of the garden, with a cat garden statue to mark her grave.
My neighbours were heartbroken at the loss of their little cat. I think when you know what a tonic it can be to have a cat sitting and purring happily on your lap, to suddenly not have it really can throw you off balance emotionally. After a few weeks of feeling very empty, my neighbour told me that they had decided to look for another cat to rescue. I gave them the address of the place where we had rescued our beautiful Diego but when they visited there, they did not have our luck. The also visited Battersea Old Windsor, but it seems a rare occurrence for Battersea to rehome a cat in a house with dogs and, of course, my neighbours have a rather large but docile Alsatian mix who is quite accustomed to living with cats. I think this is also true for the local Cats Protection, as I had no luck with them when I was trying to rehome a cat two years ago. I'm not sure if it is just an assumption that a cat would rather live in a cage than with a dog, but it is my experience that most of them would rather wait until someone without a dog comes along to adopt their charges.

For those of you still undecided about what to do this coming Sunday (29 November); don't miss the Christmas Fayre at Hillfields Animal Sanctuary, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.
Plenty to do, eat, buy and meet the animals as well, a truly good day out.
