Welcome to our blog! Here you'll find our weekly dog and cat contest winners along with the inside scoop on some of our favorite calendars and more. 

Meet Mako: Our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Mako - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest Winner

Mako is 11 years old and blind in one eye since he was a kitten rescued next to a dumpster in a parking lot in the US, but remains very active and spry. In this photo he is enjoying a nap in the sun after a VERY long journey moving from South Carolina to Australia. There are a lot of "hoops" to jump through moving animals to another country, but well worth it! They love their new home!

Congratulations to Mako, our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Meet Napoleon: Our Page-a-Day® Cat of the Week!

Napoleon - This week's Page-A-Day Cat Photo Contest Winner

Napoleon loves to be outside to play with his friend Pedro and hunt. He trills when he wants you to pick him up and purrs loudly. His favorite place to sleep is in bed stretched out next to you or in the bathroom sink. It was my lucky day when this sweet stray kitten came to my house!

Meet Willie: Our Page-A-Day® Dog of the Week!

Willie, Our Page-A-Day Dog of the Week

We adopted Willie from Adopt-A-Pet. He was there with his sister and they had been badly abused. It's hard for me to comprehend how anyone could beat such little babies. Unfortunately Willie developed severe Epilepsy very possibly from the head trauma he received when he was beaten. He passed away at 3yrs of age due to the epilepsy. He was the life of the party and a snuggle bunny to boot. We miss him very much.

Congratulations to Willie, our Page-A-Day® Dog of the Week!
