About Meow Mini Mart
Founded in Spring 2018, Meow Mini Mart is conceived from the idea that there are very few retail online stores dedicated to all things feline. And yet, there are over 83 million domesticated cats in the US verses 78 million dogs.
Besides being a very dog-centric retail world, within those few shops, there are even less that focus on organic and sustainably made items for cats.
That is where the Meow Mini Mart comes in…we will specialize in all things organic, sustainable and practical for our feline friends…ok maybe not always practical but certainly with fun always in mind!
Organic treats, handcrafted toys, practical solutions to everyday feline issues and custom designed accessories for those Instagram photo-ops will be some of our key items for sale on the site!
Additionally, we will offer unique gifts for the cat enthusiast & pet parent so as not to be left out of all the fun!
Everything that we offer in Meow Mini Mart is approved by the two cuties above - Laszlo and Beau! Laszlo and Beau are our own focus group - they are both brutally honest with what they like and what they don't like.
A portion of our proceeds will be donated to the TNR/TNA efforts of TLC Rescue* and other related associations who contribute to the positive well-being of our community cats in Weehawken and Hudson County, New Jersey.
About Our Owner & Creative Director
A former fashion buying and merchandising executive and business owner, Sherry Cassin brings an extensive knowledge of retail and design as well as a deep understanding of trends in consumer lifestyle behavior.
Moving to New Jersey and adopting two cats from a local rescue group was a game-changer for her as she also recognized that the trend towards “all things healthy, holistic and preventative,” was as important to pets as to their human owners.
The basis for her next business started as a concerned cat parent trying to play an active role in her cat’s food allergy issues and blogging about her findings & the new practices and trends in today’s cat wellness. In addition, she also started volunteering for her local rescue group doing fundraising.
Launching Meow Mini Mart is a perfect fit for her as it combines her professional retail experience and her personal desire to give back for the sake of the animals.
