For 17 years I had a cat named Clyde. For most of those 17 years Clyde got premium cat kibble and an occasional can of wet food (or tuna if he got so lucky). I fed him dry cat food in a deep, hand-painted ceramic dish. I would always marvel at how he would get the level of dry kibble in his bowl precisely half empty and start to cry endlessly like he might parish from lack of enough dry food to sustain him the rest of his days.

Probably one of the number one myths our store busts on a daily, weekly and monthly basis is that kibble (dry, hard, crunchy food) is responsible for cleaning teeth in animals.

The truth is – when is the last time you ate a bag of chips or a bowl of cereal and felt like you didn’t need to run brush your teeth? Why would we expect that our pets are any different?

Let’s face it – animal rescue organizations are always in need of donations! Be it the middle of the summer during the highest intake months or the pre-Christmas days when adoptions get stagnant because families are traveling – rescue can always use a helping hand!

June is ASPCA’s National Adopt-a-Cat Month and these sweet animals are so deserving of an entire month celebrating just the wonders of these unique animals. It is also a great time to encourage everyone to go adopt a furry, purry little ball of fluff! Shelters in the US are overflowing with unwanted cats and kittens – in fact, 71% of the cats that enter shelters are euthanized. Did you know that the number of cats in homes is greater than the number of dogs? There ar...
