If you have moseyed through our store, you know that at every turn there is a photo, a carving, a drawing, a painting ......of an animal. We just love them ! Our resident cat, Loci, was a fixture in our shop (mostly on top of the bed in the window) and had many friends that came to visit her. She has moved on to greener pastures, literally, because she has gone home with her mother, India, and now has lots of green yards to hunt and explore. We do miss her !
However, we have surrounded ourselves with images of every kind of animal you could imagine.

Before you leave our menagerie, why not pick up a reminder of all the fine, furry, feathered and scaled friends you have encountered? A yummy doggie, kitty or gator cookie might do the trick.
