storm kitten update: stella loves storm

week three of operation storm is off to a super start thanks to the cool peeps over at milwaukee-based stella and chewys.  the little porker has been munching on their new freeze-dried, raw cat food and loving it.

now, stella and chewy's have offered to hook storm up with enough of the freeze-dried goodness to keep her fed through her first birthday.  what a long way she's come from being that hungry kitten in a ditch.  soon she'll have her new forever home and the happy ending she deserves.

the food comes in larger 12oz bags or .8oz single pouches in a myriad of flavors like 'tummy tickling turkey' and 'heavenly herring and tuna.'  rehydrate a small pouch with water and you've got the equivalent of a 3oz. can of food.  good quality, good eats.  'nuff said.

thanks stella and chewy's!

introducing new toys by from the field

you know what's even cooler than working in a cat store? (btw we're hiring) when a cat toy company takes your idea and runs with it, creating a custom toy just for you and naming it after your cat.

madcatter meagan and her happycat oscar contacted from the field, purveyor of fine organic catnip goods and toys made out of all-natural materials. see, oscar loves their freddy feather wand but really only wanted to play with the cork-n-feather part of it. a few emails later and the oscar de la bird toy was born! made out of a super durable cork, oscar the cat sure had fun testing the prototype. don't worry. those feathers ain't coming out.

also new from FTF is the sammy's saturn, a durable cork on a hemp ring marinated in an herbal blend of catnip and valerian root. oscar also gave this one two non-opposable thumbs up. make sure you stop by and check them out!

new arrival - dave's big cat cans

if  you're feeding multiple cats on a budget we've got a new option for you from our friends at dave's pet food.  hitting the shelves are three, grain-free, 13oz cans of wet food:  chicken, turkey and the cat's meow.  all three are tested and approved by our own in-store panel of experts.

the hot heat and drying a/c can be tough on kitty.  give him some healthy hydration by adding wet food to your daily feeding routine.  it's like watermelon for people.

County Parks: Armed and Dangerous

as long as we're all packing heat these days, why not throw some deadly animal-traps in our Dane County Parks and see what happens?

the County Board's finance committee will meet today at 5:30pm to vote on that very issue.  if they want $160,000 in DNR land-grant money, we get traps in our parks.  could something horrible happen?  some say it already has.  Anne Emerson, Alliance for Animals and other activists will be on hand to speak on behalf of animals, kids, and families.  not sure yet on the trappers.

short timeline for those catching up...
