The “other” animals of SmartPak


As a customer of SmartPak, you’ve probably talked to one of our fantastic Customer Care Representatives. You know that we’re pretty much either horse owners or dog owners (or both). You know that we often bring our dogs to the office (since you may have heard them barking in the background on a call to us), but have you ever wondered if we have other animals that we share our lives with? We’re all animal lovers, and many of us have cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, reptiles, and many other types of critters we’re proud to call our own. Here’s your chance to learn a little bit about these other companions! And if you also have “other” animal friends you call family, feel free to share pictures on our Facebook page!

”We rescued Stoli and Vincent about eight years ago. They’re litter mates and had tested positive for feline HIV. Their mother was a stray and had been killed, so they ended up in a shelter. Because of their HIV status, we were told that they would only live 4–5 years and would have serious health complications. Knock on wood, they’re eight years old and going strong. Oliver came to live with us about two years ago after my son said “Mom, I want an orange kitten, and I want to name him Oliver”. We found Oliver on Craig’s list and met his owner in the parking lot of Hooters in Pawtucket, RI to pick him up. He is quite frankly the best $20 I’ve ever spent.”

”This is Giselle, a semi-domesticated cheetah who was raised (with her brother) in captivity after they were found orphaned in the African bush. While she is definitely not my pet (though I have made donations for her care), she keeps me hard at work at SmartPak because her picture graces my screensaver and reminds me how we at SmartPak are part of a much larger movement of people all over the world working hard to keep ALL animals healthy.”
-Giselle, friend of Brad, Web Marketing/Circulation/Canine


”My two cats, Tipperary (“Tippy”) and PJ, both girls, are the two kitties I rescued. Here’s a picture of them lounging with Scoutie.”

”I have many animal friends at home, but the one that is with me every day at work (he lives here, after all) is my Betta fish Floyd, who I inherited from a SmartPak intern last summer! Watching fish swimming is supposed to be relaxing, so I take advantage of that and am quite a nerd about my fish (I have a Betta at home, too).”

”Here is my cat, Feder (pronounced Fay-dur). I adopted her from a friend about four years ago, and she is a fourteen-year-old Manx—so no tail! Her favorite hobbies are sleeping upside down, purring, and apparently show jumping…”

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
