June 2004
Edited by: Jill Nuciolo



  A long time ago I started hiding pieces of treats for Regal to search for after I leave. Now when I walk in she immediately starts running around to all the "spots" ! I haven't even gotten thru the door yet! Sometimes she gets smart tho & doesn't eat up the treats right away. Instead she is sneaking along behind me to see where I've hidden them! I haven't found any that she has missed yet so she is well deserving of the title Best Treat Hunter!

Don't forget...we want your stories to be published right here! Any story you might have about you and your pet. Let us know. We would love to hear from you!

In Loving Memory


    I have to write June's newsletter early because John, who puts it up on the website, is taking vacation. Can you believe it?? He had the audacity to schedule a vacation at newsletter time! sigh. People are so much harder to train than all you fluffy buddies! Anyway, I have been trying to come up with a topic & I am drawing a blank. So I decided today that it's time for another statistic check! I had a lot of good feedback last time I did it, plus it prompted some of you to realize how many clients I have & for you to call early to book my time! So here goes:

Currently I am serving 184 houses.
Of these houses, 55 have dogs only

34 of these houses have 2 or more dogs with the most in one house of 4.
86 houses have cats only

58 of these houses have 1 cat. The rest are 2 or more with the most in 1 house of 8.

43 houses have both cats & dogs. Only 13 of these have 1 cat but 26 have only 1 dog!

Total number of pets:

137 dogs
264 cats!
17 birds
11 bunnies
7 guinea pigs
5 gerbils
1 chinchilla.

The people in the houses consist of:
Single women- 54
Single men- 9
Married with kids- 49
Married no kids- 39
Retired/kids grown- 33
Broken down:
32 single women have cats only; 12 have dogs only & 10 have both.
Single men is almost even- 5 having dogs only & 4 cats only. None have both!!
Married with kids- 20 have dogs only; 11 cats only & 18 both
Married no kids again almost split with 16 dogs; 16 cats & 7 having both.
Retired/grown kids are a whopping 20 with cats only! 9 have dogs & 4 have both.
Busiest holiday?? anyone venture a guess?
Not Christmas!
Not Thanksgiving!
4th of July !!!
Thanksgiving is 2nd!

I think it's interesting to follow along the life cycle of kids & dogs, then retired & having only cats. It's also worth mentioning that the most often travelers are single women & retired! And single women are most likely to hire a petsitter!
I already have some appointments to meet new members of our fluffy family so there will be more to add & to talk about in upcoming newsletters! For now I will sign off so John can go on vacation.


Luv Ya Bunches!!!

Fluffy Paw Gang
