Pet Food Store News Taken Over by Cat!


MAU MAU the CAT here (why do you keep expecting the dog to be in this blog? Ted and Gracie don’t know how to write!  They are just dumb puppies!)

Did you know that June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month?  Yes it is…. do you have a cat? If you do, great…. doncha need another one?   What? You have 8 cats? Oh, ok, I won’t tell if you wont!   But if you only have one, consider another one…. I don’t like my cat friends out there on the streets alone, not being taken care of.   St. Louis has lots of places that have adoptable cats – Tenth Life Cat Rescue, Animal House , APA and Humane Society just to mention a few.  OR – Go visit MauHaus in Maplewood – they got lots of kitties who need good homes.

If you get a kitty from any area rescue and bring proof of your adoption, then my Dad, Mom or Denise will give you a nice present for the kitty.  It is a surprise, but purrfect.  Now when you give that surprise to the kitty, you should get some real nice luvins…. purring, rubbing up against you – maybe sitting in your lap.   Take it from me- Mau- we are the best of all pets (Stop it Gracie… no one cares that you are a cute puppy…. Leave my catnip mouse alone).

Until next time….

There is a greater need to place ex-racing greyhounds into permanent homes than at any point in recent history, as a result of past and pending greyhound racing track closings across the country.  National-Adopt-a-Greyhound Month is the perfect time to adopt a gentle companion into your home.

In honor of National Adopt a Greyhound Month, we will partnering with our business neighbor, Vom Fass, to benefit Everything Greyt Greyhound Rescue for our monthly nail trim session later in the month.

National Lost Dogs Awareness Day 2019

Tuesday, April 23rd is National Lost Dogs Awareness Day.

ldoasquare

On April 23, 2014, Lost Dogs of America created and launched the first National Lost Dog Awareness Day (NLDAD), a canine-centric holiday aimed to bring attention to all dogs that are lost each year, while also celebrating the thousands of lost dogs successfully reunited with their families.

Lost Dogs of America is an all-volunteer organization with the exclusive purpose of providing a free service to help reunite families with their lost dogs.

The tenacious efforts of the combined states’ volunteers efforts, along with over 459,282 fans have helped reunite over 99,521  dogs with their families since 2011.   Getting lost dogs back home reduces stress on owners’, staff at shelters/animal control facilities, other dogs in the facilities, and ultimately saves taxpayers’ money. It also opens up kennel space for truly homeless dogs.

For more information, or to join the volunteer network, please check out the Lost Dogs of America website:  http://lostdogsofamerica.org


National Hairball Awareness Day 2019

Friday, April 26th is National Hairball Awareness Day.

National-Hairball-Awareness-Day-Last-Friday-in-April-1024x512

Celebrated on the last Friday in April, it is listed as one of the Pet Health Awareness Events of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  The formation of hairballs is a common feline condition that is brought on by self-grooming and the associated ingestion of hair.  While not usually an issue (except to your carpet), hairballs can occasionally collect in the stomach or small intestine, and can cause a potentially life-threatening blockage in the digestive system. Don’t wait to contact your veterinarian if your cat continues to gag, retch or vomit without producing a hairball, loses his appetite, has diarrhea or constipation, or is lethargic.

For some helpful tips on reducing or eliminating hairballs, check out the following website:  http://cattime.com/cat-facts/health/2134-national-hairball-awareness-day
