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….

Recent FDA Article …

Recently the FDA came out with some information about certain ingredients that you find in a lot of our dog and cat food kibble and its impact on dogs’ health.

While we were definitely concerned we felt we needed more information from experts in the pet food industry.

Here is a link to an article that we find very informative and believe that it puts the information in proper perspective.  We are sharing this with all of you, our customers and friends.  After you read it, if you have further questions or need clarification, please feel free to reach out to us.  We believe more information will come out and we will continue to share it on our website and Facebook pages as we get it.

National Dog Day 2018

Sunday, August 26th is National Dog Day.

National Dog Day celebrates all breeds, pure and mixed, and serves to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year either from public shelters, rescues, and pure breed rescues. National Dog Day honors family dogs and dogs that work selflessly to save lives, keep us safe, and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day – for their law enforcement partner, for their blind companion, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs, and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day 2018

Tuesday, August 28th is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day.

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day sets aside a day to remember the pet companions we’ve lost.  Whether furry, feathered, or an uncommon variety, we feel the loss of a pet deeply.  They become family and a familiar part of our lives.  Mourning their death is different for everyone and Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day provides a way to help heal the ache of loss.

On this day, celebrate the home you provided to that special companion and the joy your beloved pet brought you in return.


Labor Day 2018

The store will be closed on Monday, September 3rd, 2018 for Labor Day.

Have a safe and restful holiday!


National Wildlife Day 2018

Tuesday, September 4th is National Wildlife Day.

Founded in 2005, in memory of wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin, the day serves to bring global awareness and education concerning the number of endangered animals and the need for conservation and preservation.  From participating in presentations and volunteering to fundraising for rehabilitation services, many zoos, aviaries, and marine sanctuaries provide a variety of ways to get involved.
