THE STORY OF SPOT
SPOT Prints is a family business that started in the fall of 2008. (Note that the word family comes before business... and we mean that!) The name SPOT was also the name of the family cat. Rescued as a kitten- he fell out of a tree, literally- so yes, he was rescued!- he was smart, creative and full of personality! His antics never went unnoticed, as he trained us to supply him treats, toys and new friends to play with. He would visit area clients (on leash of course!) and ruled the house. Spot passed away unexpectedly in 2012, but his name and legacy live on as our mascot.
Spot is how the company got it's name! After the sudden on set of renal failure, Spot passed away at 10 years old. He was quite the character as a kitten. His behavior at the vet's office gave me a new perspective on the phrase "aggressive" cats . Because of him, I learned more about cat behavior.
As the namesake and mascot of SPOT Prints, he reminds me to never accept a problem at face value. There's ALWAYS a solution, sometimes you just have to look at the problem from another angle.
