The story behind the "My Pit is a Love" Tee

  I will never forget my first encounter with a Pitbull (also known as American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.)    It was long ago at a BBQ pool party.  Here was this pit running around the pool - and I was trying to avoid it.  I was all too familiar with the “mean biting dog” reputation.  Later in the afternoon. I was sitting on the sofa,  and this pit came bounding on my lap.  I was scared only for a few seconds, as this lover started wagging his tail and covering my face with kisses. ...

Hamster Power!

Wilson, our fat ginger tabby cat,  crossed the rainbow bridge on June 19, 2017. He was sixteen years old.

Origin of the “yes” cat

One of our favorite designs is the “yes” cat.  The cat, so far, appears on two shirts; the “YES” shirt and the “FOOD” shirt.  We have a "chocolate" shirt in the makings. The story behind that cute cat is a particular pose of my cat, Wilson Bones Mallette, on the sofa.  He looks calm in this photo, but all I need to do is rattle a bag of treats, and his face instantly resembles our yes cat illustration.   The Wilson “Willy” story How Wilson got his name: My husband and I are owned by just one kitty – Wilson...
