How It Started

"Happy Kitty" Gift Basket
 I took a "Small Business" course when I was in college.  We had to prepare a business plan as part of our grade.  My business plan was for a gift basket company.  I have always wanted to open a gift basket company but just hadn't found my "niche".

Since I am the proud Mom to six cats and two dogs that I love to spoil, I thought it would be nice to offer a product to people like me that love to spoil their four-legged family members.  After much thought and a great deal of research, I decided to open Pawtastic Baskets on May 1, 2011.

You will notice that I use "we" and "our" when talking about the business.  This is in reference to my four-legged co-owners.  My four-legged family members are responsible for treat, toy, and ribbon testing and I have to say they have been doing a great job!!!

The photo you see here is of the first basket we ever made and the first basket sold in our Etsy Store.  We want to thank our great furiend Tink Alva and her Mom for being our very first customers.  We hope you get a great many hours of enjoyment out of your basket full of toys and treats!

We are working on a number of basket designs right now and hope to have new additions to our Store in the near future.

Thank you all for stopping by to read our blog.
