Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

St Patrick’s Day is often marked with green beer and tacky “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirts. You try to play along with some modicum of taste by wearing your favorite Kelly green fashion accessory, even if you don’t share the same heritage as Bono, Colin Farrell or Pierce Brosnan.


Why not go green in another way this St Pat’s Day? And spare your pet the usual green bandana. Pick up something organic for your kitty from LA designer Mei Zaums. Her line of toys and accessories called Jake and Micah (named after her Siamese mix cats) are all lovingly handcrafted.


Go green with an Asian twist – instead of a cuppa of Irish Breakfast Tea, let your cat fancy the Catmint Organic Catnip Tea Bag toy. The fabric tag and string are perfect for dangling and playing. And you don’t have to worry about chemicals because the 100% premium organic catnip is grown in the USA from certified organic growers.


What kitty wouldn’t love the Olive Martini Collar? It’ll make any fashionista just purr, and won’t the other cool cats go green with envy! The collar comes with a removable bell, and an optional Pewter Fishbone Charm. Meow!

To order your Jake And Micah toy, go to
Or go to Pussy and Pooch Pethouse and Pawbar, 564 South Main Street, Los Angeles, CA


It wouldn’t be St Pat’s without an Irish Setter enjoying the day. Lucky Fiona is a line of handmade dog accessories. Designer Shannon Barry dedicated the line to her English setter, a rescued dog she named Fiona, but she does also have two Irish Setters named appropriately named Dugan and Caelan.


Using reproduction and vintage fabrics and trims, Lucky Fiona creates one of a kind adjustable dog collars and accessories. Two whimsical creations are The Lucky Clover and The Patrick, featuring a traditional Celtic knot design. Both come with a Clover Charm, for style and luck.

Let you pet enjoy a top o’ the morning, and spare him the humiliating headband-bandana combo!
