Beside our business our lives revolve around each other, our family and our feline friends, who are also part of our family. For many years we were active volunteers with cat rescue, fostering and adoption and still give ongoing regular support to a local non-profit organization called Forgotten Felines of Sonoma County as well as our local Humane Society.
