Caticons: 4,000 Years of Art Imitating Cats

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (06-29-2019) #629: Featuring Sandy Lerner, Ryan Yamka, and Krister Holm. Sandy Lerner was the co-founder of Cisco Systems, but as a lifetime cat lover, her truest passion is can be seen in her massive, gorgeous book CATICONS: 4,000 YEARS OF ART IMITATING CATS, which captures just a fraction of her own cat-centric art and objects collection; veterinary nutritionist Ryan Yamka talks with Tracie about the worrisome and inappropriate negativity and fear-mongering about commercial pet food, while also discussing the future of pet food ingredients like man-made, meat-substitute proteins; Krister Holm talks about his innovative dog pee-pads, Wizsmart which takes imperfect human baby diapers and reconfigures them into leak proof sturdy pee pads, as seen in the Zak George product video.
