Catwalk pets re-opened with style


Catwalk pets plays host to all sorts of animals in grand re-opening.

On Wednesday, April 16 the shop welcomed exotic creatures from a royal python to a shire horse to celebrate reopening with a larger store and an in house vet.

Children were invited to play with and handle the animals as well as getting the opportunity to have their picture taken with them at the shop on High Road, Fairlop.

Owner Azhar Iqbal said: “The day went really well, they say you shouldn’t work with animals and children but it was fantastic and everyone had a great time.

“Everybody loved the free photos from the photo booth and the chance to see and touch some different animals.

“We were just pleased to be able to personally say thank you to the community for their custom over the last ten years and show them what we will be able to offer in future.”

Catwalk Pets has now reopened with an in house veterinarian which they say is the first of its kind in the country.
