One of my favorite movies growing up was the Wizard of Oz. Even though it was fantasy,it had a lot of symbolism that - to this day - we can all relate to one way or another.
One of the parts that sticks out is:"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain." To a point,that's what we all are - that man behind the curtain we don't want anyone else to see.
Well,let's take a look behind the curtain.
I'm Ron- just a simple factory worker that's been a machine operator for 20 years making envelopes.
As a kid,I lived in a house with my mother down stairs,and my grand mother upstairs who owned 9 cats. Each were different kinds and had different personalities. I was 8 at the time - but that's where my love for cats grew.
As time went on and I moved around for one reason or another,I've lost a lot of pets along the way. One thing I know a lot about is grief. It lasts longer than just a few weeks - well over a year in most cases.
Another thing I've learned a lot about is not just losing a pet,but possibly having to because it's someone else's decision(land lord,etc.). That's one of the reasons why I decided to start my own store. To get that financial boost where I wouldn't be a rich snob,but have more financial control over my life where no one could tell me hey- I have to move and possibly get rid of my pet.
As I grew older,I also realized I have good Photoshop skills. I can design personalized things for people and their pets and put them on mugs,shirts,bed covers etc.If that's you,email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
As my business grew,I needed someone to help me with orders. That's where Joy came in. She lives in the Philippines,is very trust worthy and reliable. She's also fell upon hard times as well,with her whole village in Cebu (including her house) burning down and losing some of her pets as well.
So lets look behind the people - behind the curtain. We are not rich or well off - we are hard working people that want to live a better life financially - but not to be so rich we are snobs. We want more control over our lives so we can help our pets in need and that noone can decide if we have to give them up or not. Our goal is to grow as a business,connect with our customers, and give what extra we can to help others out as well.
The best thing I can provide is my Photoshop skills for my personalized designs for peoples pets that have passed away.Thank you loyal customer for reading this. We cannot have made it this fa (or farther in the future) without you!
Ron and Joy
