New Location

Well here we are at our new location and hopefully you have all been able to find us somehow or other.

Many thanks for the new suggestions for names. I was really tempted by those with Feline in the title , and almost went with Feline Minder Finder which was one of Silliyak's suggestions, mainly as I had been so keen on the Feline word.

Earlier we had gone so far as to buy the host domain for the name CopyCatCare as I loved that .

This one was D's idea.
I've been suffering insomnia, partly just the time of year , change in the weather , but also partly the shock of being accused of stealing someone else's business idea and name and the upset of having to change everything when I've been using the name cat calls for years albeit in a very small way in this area. Coupled with wondering how it could possibly hurt someone who has a much bigger ( and probably far more professional ) business in London .
So when I woke at four am and saw D's list of new names including CopyCatCare-replicating the care you provide your cats at home whilst you are away- it made me laugh and think , well , a certain irony there!

However in the end my sister suggested CatMinders and I kept being drawn to that by its simplicity and by the fact that I could hear myself saying it on the phone whereas the other two were a little more cumbersome .


So CatMinders we are and I shall spend the weekend re designing business cards and trying to get the website up and running though I am not sure whether anyone ever really used it. I think I operate mainly by word of mouth and have about three or four customers all told ! Suits me very well .

I'm shocked at the concept of a change in the weather in England! Having said that, we're having very English weather here. It should be in the eighties (F) instead it's in the 50s/60's with rain every three or four days. As for your nemesis (She who must be ignored), hrumph!

Well this post showed up in my reader, just like a "catcalls" post. Maybe because of the way I have you set up. Had so much trouble adding you to begin with - I had to search your code to find the feed, remember? Interesting.

Made it easy on me!
