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….

October – National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month.

Designated by BOTH The American Society for the Prevention of Animal Cruelty (ASPCA) and the American Humane Association (AHA), National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month helps to bring awareness to all the wonderful adoptable dogs waiting for their fur-ever homes, and tries to encourage people to adopt, not shop, for their next canine companion.

National Fire Pup Day 2018

Sunday, October 1st is National Fire Pup Day.

National Fire Pup Day recognizes the canine firefighters that have long been members of fire departments across the country.  While the origin of the Dalmation is unknown, their use in firehouses began during the 1700’s.  Trained as a carriage dog and having a natural affinity to horses, the Dalmation’s agility transferred quickly to horse-drawn fire engines.  They provided a valuable service, running alongside the horses, either in front of or beneath the fire wagon axles, and clear the way for safety.  Long after the red engines replaced the horse-drawn wagons, the Dalmation remains a very recognizable tradition in fire stations across the US.  Serving as mascots, they help educate the public about fire safety and represent past fire pups in honor of their heroism.

National Black Cat Day 2017

Saturday, October 27th, is National Black Cat Day.

Don’t be superstitious! October 27 may be National Black Cat Day, but it is all about celebrating the beauty of these sleek creatures.  While this time of year black cats may decorate many thresholds for Halloween and windows for spooky decor, these felines deserve the love and attention just as much as their tabby counterparts.  Old notions have given these furry critters a bad reputation.  National Black Cat Day is about turning that reputation around.

Show your mini black panther some extra special love today!
