If you want all the cuddles but none of the feeding and clearing up, you could do worse than invest in the Illamasqua Kabuki Body Brush as a pretend-pet. Its quite literally the softest, fluffiest thing you ever felt and you just want to stroke it over and over! It is made from synthetic hair that is more luxurious than the real thing and obviously infinitely kinder to animals. If you pass the counter, stop by for a feel and you’ll see exactly what I mean. £38, www.illamasqua.com
