Help for the Shop


Hai everyone! Momma and I are still traveling down a bumpy road as we get over the past year.

As you may know we had a really rough year last year and momma has incurred many new medical bills. The shop was doing really well up until last month when things really slowed down.

We have been doing as much as we can to make our business better for all our furriends and customers. We have a ton of new products, more are added daily. Emails are going out to let you know of our new products and offers weekly. And lining up new distributors to help us stock the shop with more unique products.

It is going to take time we think for all our efforts to start to pay off. And now momma will look for outside work to help keep us going.

But until then we could use any helps you can provide, momma is in fear of losing her health insurance which is furry expensive and important.

The green papers will help to pay momma’s health bills to keep insured and the shop to keep going, we have some regular fees coming early next month that we want to makes sure gets paid or the bank charges us huge fees. Please know that even purchases help greatly so if you want or need something for your cats or dogs just place an order!

If you can’t helps with green papers or an order, we would appreciate any of the following other options to helps out:

  1. Post the giving widget on your blog or web site
  2. Post our tags and/or text links on your blog or web site – click here
  3. Forward our pawsome emails to your furriends
  4. Tweet a shout out for our shop
  5. Facebook shout out for our shop

To paste the widget on your site or blog just copy the code in the box below:

NOTE: We had a previous widget that we were trying out but it didn’t seem to work like we wanted so this is a new one and we had raised $20 on the other one.

How we are…

Hai everyone! We hope all our furriends and pawsome customers are all doing okay and enjoying the nice warm weather. Although there has been the June gloom here and there it is still pretty warm outsides for us. But we hope everyone overs in Australia and New Zealand are keeping warm during their cold weathers.

Well once again furriends we are in need of your help if you are able. Despite all our hard work on the shop, last month was extremely slow. Not only did google makes large change but it would seem that spending in the pet category was hit. It can be hard to tell why and when these things will happen.

We have been doing as much as we can to make our business better for all our furriends and customers. We have a ton of new products, more are added daily. Emails are going out to let you know of our new products and offers weekly. And lining up new distributors to help us stock the shop with unique products. It is going to take time we think for all our efforts to start to pay off.

As you may know from our post back in March our house was in jeopardy, it had been thankfully worked out with the big bank but it has been hard with momma’s huge health bills. Momma is looking at getting extra work at home to help pick up the slack but we are in immediate need. Our new chipin is directly through PayPal and should show accurate progress, the goal amount is an immediate need to helps us keep going with the shop. It is the very minimum, and as you know this is not easy for us. We feel extremely bad that we are back here asking for helps again. Momma had leaky eyes on Friday as she just didn’t know where to turns. It’s through our wonderfur furriends that we feel that we can be honest and let you know our situation.

The green papers will help to pay momma’s health bills to keep insured and the shop to keep going, we have some regular fees coming early next month that we want to makes sure gets paid or the bank charges us huge fees. Please know that even purchases help greatly so if you want or need something for your cats or dogs just place an order!

My Quilt!

Happy Caturday! What are you doing this fine weekend? As usual momma and daddy are home to give me play time and love! I know I have mentioned the quilt that momma’s grandmother made, that was passed down to her just recently.

It’s official… it is my quilt!

It is mighty comfy and soft, plus it is right above where momma sits on the couch!

Momma’s grandmother use to always ask how us kitties were, I think maybe she knew that someday a quilt would come our way and one of us would claims it. She had a kitty named Snowball that momma gave to her some years ago, it has been rough on her after her momma left us. We hopes she settles down in her new home with momma’s uncle.

We has an all new category for the shop, cat outfits for cats! I know what you are going to says, I would claw my momma’s eyes out if she tried to dress me, right? Well not all kitties do or would so we have been asked and have now delivered some great kitty clothing options.

New products are being added to the shop, we will soon have many pawsome options.
