An innovation in cat healthcare and grooming recognised.

Wrapsio, a scratch-resistant swaddling blanket that helps keep cats calm for grooming and giving treatments, is announced as a finalist in this year’s PetQuip awards.

This revolutionary product, made from a unique soft fabric, is not only comforting for the cat but also provides outstanding levels of protection to the handler from paws and claws.

The awarding organisation PetQuip is a well-respected international trade association with a judging panel comprising expert retailers and independent specialists with vast experience. The accolades (to be announced in September) give businesses excellent opportunities to promote their new product developments and successes.

A strong advocate for fear-free animal handling and vet nurse, Miranda Luck, created Wrapsio Cat Wraps to improve cat welfare whilst preventing injuries to their handler.

Miranda said: “We are thrilled to find out we are a finalist. Having Wrapsio recognised as such a valuable and safe aid for grooming cats is a real boost. A gentle alternative to scruffing and muzzling, we already know many professional cat groomers won’t work without one”.

Industry expert, Christine Anderton of Absolutely Animals, who took part in the initial trials of Wrapsio, said: “We have tried out the Wrapsio and found it fantastic! It’s worked really well with scratching cats, and it’s given us much more confidence.”

Miranda added ‘Wrapsio are a small but determined team and to have become a finalist in the PetQuip ’22 awards is not only exciting but truly rewarding. We are passionate about providing solutions to help with humane cat handling and are delighted that Wrapsio is being acknowledged in this way”.
