Goodbye Dear Friend

We are looking for a new home for our store cat. It’s not healthy to keep her here any longer. She is a very temperamental cat and is used to having the store to herself. Some of you may remember our other cat Grumpy, who shared the store with Purdy back in the late 90s. Unfortunately, there was rivalry and intimidation. Grumpy developed a condition and passed on in 1999. Now it seems that the presence of our 18-month-old daughter Evelyn is causing Purdy a lot of stress, which has manifested itself in intestinal discomfort.

We hope to have her in new environs — with no other pets or babies — by July 31. Please contact us if you have any suggestions.

    My daughter & I love shopping at BBB during Piccolo Spoleto and always delighted in visiting Purdy through the years. Best wishes to Purdy in his new home. Please give him special goodbye pats from us.
    We look forward to glimpses of lovely Evelyn during our annual Spoleto visits.
    Ivy & Claire
