"Common Sense" for sale
at NEADY Cats


The kitties have a little "Common Sense" and want to share it with you. These cleansers, moisturizers, and shampoos are all natural. They never contain synthetic fragrances, synthetic preservatives, or artificial colors.

You can call or email Marilyn to order and pick up your selections. All profits will go to NEADY Cats.

Now a commercial break...

Our kitties like to pose next to products in the cat room in hopes that a talent scout will find them and they will become as famous as Morris.
