The Barking Cat

March 31, 2020

The Barking Cat has been deemed an essential business. The Kimball Junction-based pet food and supply store is open to walk-ins, as long as they maintain the appropriate requirements set by the Summit County Health Department and the CDC. Owner Merridee Hansen Farr said staff cleans and sanitizes every item in the store to keep a safe environment for everyone. The store has also instigated “Fetch & Go,” a program helps their local clients care for their fur babies during the COVID-19 lockdown. People can order dog and cat food, toys and other supplies by phone or online through the store’s website and Facebook pages and arrange to pick the items up curbside, or have them delivered.
