Hi - we are Kim and Juan Kniveton - founders of My Purrfect Gift Box and dedicated cat lovers! Not only do we have three cats of our own (see team below), but in 2012 we moved back to the Isle of Man (where Juan is from) from the United States (where Kim is from) to run our own idyllic countryside retreat for cats - Boodee Beg Boarding Cattery
As a family based business, we believe in giving back in everything we do. When we first took over running Boodee Beg we set up the Boodee Beg shop....it was run by our kids, Iain and Hannah as a way to earn money to help the local shelters. The small shop located in the reception area of the cattery sold small items like toys, treats, cat beds, carriers etc. and we donated 100% of the profits to our local charities...the Mann Cat Sanctuary and the Manx SPCA.
But our little shop didn't do very well...we sold a few items, but not really in the quantity that we needed to properly give to our charities that do such great work in our community here in the Isle of Man.
So we sat down together as a family and thought about different ways we could make a BIGGER difference not only here in the Isle of Man, but across the UK. Sitting around our dining room table, My Purrfect Gift Box was formed. It took Kim's love of getting surprise cat themed gifts combined with the desire to make a difference in the lives of cats.
Each quarter we choose to focus on a different cat charity, rescue centre or shelter and highlight the work they do through our social media sites and through information that comes in each box. We then donate 5% of all our profits from that month's box to our chosen charity of the month. So you can be confident that with every My Purrfect Gift Box you receive, you are also giving to help support the lives of cats. Thank you!
If you are part of a group or charity that support cats in your community and would like to be highlighted in a future box, please get in touch at [email protected]
