Have you seen the Kit-Cat Clock?

    The Kit-Cat® Klock had its humble beginning in the mid 1930′s when it brought mystery and excitement with its rolling eyes and wagging tail to an economically depressed nation ready for a smile and a friend. Since then Kit-Cat® has been developing into a recognizable character in cartoons, books, on clothing and other exciting products! His popularity as a positive character increases daily through the Kit-Cat® Fan Club, now boasting over 10,000 dues paying members from around the world. Members adopt Kit-Cat’s positive philosophy towards life and live out the Kit-Cat® Creed: Put a smile on everyone’s face; Love in everyone’s heart; Energy in everyone’s body; and Be a positive force in everyone’s life!

Kit-Cat Klocks have been selling in stores across the country since the mid 1930's. His zany smile has filled homes and offices alike with joy and excitement. But why is he still so popular after all of these years? “Many letters arrive each year,” says Woody Young, owner of the California Clock Company (Kit-Cat’s home), “asking us to tell Kit-Cat’s story.”

The Kit-Cat Klock was created in a small town on the west coast during the Great Depression. While the people of this nation were struggling to survive, the Kit-Cat Klock gave them a smile and entertained them with his rolling eyes and wagging tail. Knowing this, it is easy for us to understand how he can still bring comfort to many who remember those trying times.

Do you shop local?

Just a reminder to SHOP LOCALLY at your independently owned merchants' stores. It's really important, especially in these challenging times of econmoic trouble. Think outside the (big) box. When you pull into those huge parking lots looking for a place to park, think "oh....I could probably buy this at (fill in the blank with your favorite local independent store)".
