Goodbye Drs. Foster And Smith

Drs. Foster and Smith’s website is gone but not forgotten.

 

Is this cat napping on an old Drs. Foster and Smith catalog?

Is this cat napping on an old Drs. Foster and Smith catalog?

Back in the day, my cats and I loved finding a Drs. Foster and Smith catalog in our mailbox. 

We thought there was way too much dog stuff, but we always found a few cat items to buy. Our first floor-to-ceiling cat tree came in a huge box from Drs. Foster and Smith.


That was before there was an Internet and online retailers. And more important to Drs. Foster and Smith, it was before there was a giant pet supply company called Petco.  


Petco purchased Drs. Foster and Smith in 2015. It shut the company down last winter and moved its online services to Petco’s website.
