Joan, manager of Reminiscence, holds Valentina, the sweet cat she rescued from the building next door.  Valentina was a frightened, very shy little cat hiding behind boxes left in the basemen of the neighboring store, after it went out of business. Joan and her staff, especially along time employee Rodney, fed her, talked to her and gradually gained her trust.

She has grown into a healthy, beautiful, friendly cat – Joan and the staff love her, as do customers who come to Reminiscence to shop – actually, some people come to Reminiscence to visit with Valentina.

Felix the cat balloon!

The annual 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City celebrates it’s 90th anniversary. This year brings back the Felix the cat balloon, which was the first giant balloon to be part of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in 1927.

The first-ever Macy’s Day Parade actually took place on Christmas of 1924. Macy’s employees dressed as clowns, cowboys, and other fun costumes, and traveled with Central Park zoo animals and creative floats a lengthy six miles from Herald Square to Harlem in Manhattan.
The parade was meant to draw attention to the Macy’s store in NYC, and the gimmick worked – more than 250,000 people attended the inaugural Macy’s Day Parade.It was decided that this NYC parade would become an annual NY event in Manhattan.

In 1927, Felix the Cat became the first giant balloon to ever take part in the Macy’s Day Parade. In 1928, Felix was inflated with helium, and without a plan to deflate this massive balloon, NYC parade organizers simply let Felix fly off into the sky. Unfortunately, he popped soon thereafter.

How could a Christmas cat toy be dangerous?

This is important enough to remind everyone to beware of this dangerous Christmas  cat toy:

It’s always fun to give your
cat new toys, especially as Christmas gifts. But not all toys are
created equal, in fact some toys are dangerous for your cat
although they are sold for cats. For example, this prepackaged
Christmas cat toy stocking contains an especially dangerous toy.20140101-094108.jpg
This green spiky thing is like giving your cat shredded ribbon: and
if a cat ingests ribbon, string, that sort of thing, it is very
This particular toy sheds:

I immediately threw this toy away.

Happy New Year
for all 2 and 4 legged creatures (and if you have fins, too)!
