It's been almost 3 years since we lost our wonderful Sparky, the friendly gray feline who welcomed all to the shop, and whose political aspirations brought him much notoriety.

Sparky's story - rescued cat finds home, job, jumps into politics - was an inspiration to many. If you would like to help others in need of a home, like Sparky once was, please consider donating time or resources to one of the following organizations: for pets - the Animal Protective Foundation; for people - Bethesda House of Schenectady, Inc.

We now have 2 salescats, Roger (pictured at right) and Ophelia (not shown). Although they do not (yet) possess Sparky's polished and professional customer service skills, they do provide some entertainment and are building a strong fan base. We can only hope that they might choose to follow Sparky's political path.
