Tell us about your business.

We have designed the ideal pet carriers for cats and small dogs. They come in two designs, the TOTE and and BACKPACK. The tote is designed for cats, making travel anywhere easier and a lot less stressful. The backpack is ideal for dogs up to 10 pounds and can go anywhere, including on board for plane travel. We originally designed the backpack for Dr. Eisen's mexican chihuahua. Nothing presently available was good enough . So, we set out the make the perfect backpack style carrier for LOLA, the chihuahua. People saw it and LOVED it. Then we realized that cats need a better carrier as well. We then designed the TOTE and cats simply LOVE them. Makes getting to the veterinarian a breeze. We have trademarked the name and patented the two styles. We are hoping to find a manufacturer in this country and create brand recognition for what we feel is the next best thing in pet carriers.

We have worked from home. We also have hired a couple of people to help us sew the carriers.
