Besides educating you about diabetic cats, I want to share some interesting people and cats so that you can help them. One of our furiends on Facebook has started a new company which makes cat toys. It’s called Playtime Kitty, located in Derry, Northern Ireland.
The founder of Playtime Kitty, Ursula Harkin, has four cats and five dogs. If anyone knows how to keep furry friends happy, it’s her!
Three of Ursula’s cats are males. Supreme Commander Thor is the oldest boy, and he is three. Then there’s Garfield and Leo, who are six months old. The only girl in the bunch is Winnie, who’s also known as Snookes. She is around four.
The oldest of the five dogs is Sidney, and she is 13 years old. Tigger, Patten, and Eisenhower are all from the same litter. They are twelve. The youngest dog is Montgomery Binx, who is a ten year old girl.
Ursula founded the company on the premise that her customer’s needs are of the utmost importance. The entire company is committed to meeting those needs. That’s why a high percentage of their business is from repeat customers and referrals.
Running a company that specializes in cat toys was not what Ursula had in mind. She studied biomedical science in college. But after graduation, Ursula found that there were no jobs to be found in that field.
So she put together her love of animals and her need to do something that would pay the bills and came up with Playtime Kitty. Ursula often bought toys for her nine furiends, but she was never able to find anything that was unique and different.
That’s why she came up with the idea to do personalized gift bags. Her plan is to initially focus on toy bags for cats, and then grow the business so that she can sell toy bags for dogs as well.
I like the idea of a unique bag of cat toys! Think I should get my human to buy some?
