We’d like to emphasize the gravity of the situation: cat. Door. And if you’re a cat owner, you know that whichever side of the door the cat’s on is decidedly the wrong side.

When he wasn’t busy formulating the laws of gravity and making countless discoveries in the worlds of optics and mathematics, Sir Isaac Newton faced the very same cat/door conundrum. In fact, he invented the cat flap that allowed his cat to freely move indoors or out. And for that? Pet owners of the world are grateful. Since it’s hardly possible to hug Sir Issac for his ingenuity, why not celebrate Hug A Cat Day (that’s today!) by showing a little affection to the nearest feline?

We do our best to show some love to the cats, dogs & other pets that are looking for homes. Every week we publish a featured pet from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter and shelter info from The SPCA of Luzerne County. And you’ll also find ads for cats, dogs, fish, hamsters – and all the required supplies – in Pets & Supplies.
