The Blissful Cat Team
The Blissful Cat Team is a hard-working, cat-loving, dog-loving, horse/pony/donkey loving, Netflix binging crew. We love making each product individually and filling it with love, to share with your cats.
Kathy Dannel Vitcak | CEO | Founder | Owner
As a transplanted Southerner, I love the Up North life. My favorite winter pastime is texting my sisters in Mississippi the current temperatures. If you really want to know ALL about how our business got started...check it out here.
Ashley Kelzer | Chief Operating Officer | Co-Founder The Blissful Horses
Ashley studied Agricultural Business at the University of Minnesota in Crookston, MN. Ashley is an avid horse lover and can be seen running down Hwy 32 chasing them when they get loose. Ashley, her mom and Amanda are pictured together at Ashley's recent wedding to Nick Kelzer.
Amanda Hoffman | Shipping Manager
Amanda is back! Amanda was our first real, on-the-payroll employee. She brings her expertise as a groomer to us. She is also fondly known as Goat Girl. She started Bring Your Goat To Work Day. We hope to make it a National Holiday soon.
Teri Hoffman | Co-Office Manager | Product Specialist | Community Liaison
Yep, Teri is Ashley and Amanda's mom and has joined the crew here. She keeps us all in line and on time. Teri has that ever-so-valuable gift of cutting to the nuts and bolts of the matter and infusing her special brand of common sense into our work. Teri has a degree in accounting and has my deepest respect. The whole concept of accounting evades me totally.
Tami Weber | Production Assistant
Tami helps us with everything we need help with. She pops in a couple of times a week and picks up the slack and helps keep things going smoothly. She also shares her own unique Tami Tales. Tami shares her home with four dogs, Bella, Prince, Neuman and Rocky and two cats.
Larccán aka The Tiny Tyrant
Larccán, the red smooth Brussels Griffon clutched in my arms above, is my newest love. He is an absolute delight (most of the time) and there is nothinhg more fun than watching him terrorize his sisters the Floofers.
Ska∂i & Tili aka The Floofers
Our guardians and hair growing marvels are our ¾ Leonberger and ¼ Great Pyrenees girls. After our adored Zoe passed the hole in my heart could not be denied. I went to look at the litter with the intentions of getting one puppy and somehow ended up with two. We are having a blast with the girls and are still amazed at how FLOOFY they are!
The Grazing Critters
Our pet Yak, Kundun, and his bestie, Clyde the sheep, keep us entertained with their shenanigans. Plus, Nyker and Bliss, our two mini-horses and Duch-ass and Prince-ass, the donkeys are a hoot to watch play. We are also honored to be the retirement home for three horses, or as I call them "The Talls."
