Charlie Goes Shopping on recently reached out to me about trying their new online pet store, from the makers of,, and I generally don't do a lot of online shopping because I'm impatient, and hate paying shipping for something I can go pick up myself, however, their prices and selection looked good, plus they offer free 1-2 day shipping on orders over $49 (and $4.99 shipping on orders under that amount), so I consulted with Charlie who thought we should give it a shot.

The site is clean and easy to navigate, and they have thousands of different products available for pets in categories such as food and treats, feeding accessories, grooming, beds and furniture, toys, and more. Wanting to give as thorough of a review as possible, I called up the customer service line to ask about the fountain we were thinking about ordering, and the representative was very friendly, and able to answer my questions right away.

On Sunday night, we sat down to place an order, which consisted of a Petlinks System Dream Curl, Petmate Replendish Waterer, Kong Cat ZoomGroom Brush, and some filters for the new fountain as well as our current waterer.

Charlie submitted the order at 5:02 PM, and a little over an hour later I received an email confirming that the order had already shipped, as was due to arrive by 8 PM on October 4th! Sure enough, the box arrived yesterday as promised, at around 2 in the afternoon.

I haven't tried the fountain yet, but the kitties are already loving the brush and the Dream Curl, especially. I thought that Charlie would be the only party interested in it, but Priscilla immediately began scratching on the top, before becoming obsessed with trying to catch the feather toy dangling underneath. There were even some fisticuffs last night when Charlie tried to get too close and ruin her good time.

Free box with every purchase! (Charlie sold separately)

I couldn't be more pleased with my experience, and plan on taking advantage of their services in the future. I also love that you can use one shopping cart across all of their sites to hit your free shipping total, plus there's no product exclusions, so if you want to order some goodies for your cat from plus some lipstick and laundry detergent for yourself from, you can do so without worrying that your final purchase total will be under the limit.

Disclosure: provided me with a gift certificate for their site in exchange for reviewing their services, however they did not tell me what to purchase, and all of the opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Pawhugs, Max

My cats love the Petlinks System Dream Curl. I bought it for my first cat two years ago when she was a baby. And now after two years of wear and claw & two more cats later, it is still an old favorite!
