It has really warmed our hearts to see the outpouring of support we have gotten. 

When we said we were low on kitten food and cat food, holy man, that whole day we were getting delivered kitten food and cat food so we are stocked now.

We are so happy to be open. ... We get to see the lovely smiling faces of our customers. Everyone is excited to be in, and get to come in and browse the shelves, and feeling like they have returned to normal.
