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….
