For stress free holidays now is a great time to make your reservations for cat sitting.

Harvest Days parade was fun. I heard lots of nice things while I was driving.  I waved a bejeweled litter scoop, which made people laugh. Go to my facebook page to see a video and you’d get to see the tail!   Here is what I submitted for the Parade announcer:  Honda is a very rare breed of car cat …

Recycled Art Bags and cat food, huh!

Patt Doyle 0 Comments

These shopping bags are a great reuse of these pet food bags. But, I gotta say if your pet food comes in a plastic bag that can be made into a shopping bag, you are buying the wrong stuff. No pet food worth your money comes in a bag like this. The first rule about buying your cat food is …
