The Urban Pet – A Pet Supply Mecca for Cat (and Dog) Owners!

by Rita Reimers

Have you ever visited a pet supply store and felt like the cat section was just an afterthought? Many cat owners have felt this frustration, and some, like me, must visit multiple stores to find all the products they need for their feline family members.

Never fear, The Urban Pet is here! I was recently invited to meet co-owner Zack Grey at his brand new store in Silverlake, and I was quite impressed. The section dedicated to cat products was just as big as the dog section, and everything was neat, clean, and easy to access.  In addition to being a well known and very talented dog trainer, Zack also shares his home with 4 wonderful felines. He wanted fellow cat lovers to feel as at-home in his stores as dog lovers do by offering a variety of products that appeal to cats.

Fun toys for kitty, as well as grooming supplies, litter, cat food, and treats make this the most complete cat department I have ever seen at a pet supply store. There is an entire isle just for the cat litter! Only human-grade cat (and dog) food is carried at The Urban Pet, in an array of popular brands. You are sure to find something for even the most finicky cat palate. 

The $20 yearly membership fee entitles members to significant price discounts, as well as special sales events that offer additional discounts of up to 20%. You do not have to be a member to shop there, but by becoming a member I personally saved more than the membership fee on my first purchase alone. The Urban Pet also hosts vaccination clinics, as well as adoption events. 

The Urban Pet can also be found at their original location in West Hollywood, at Gardner and Beverly. This location is also home to Furtographs, an animal photography studio owned by the talented Andy Stolarek. Yes, he photographs cats as well as dogs, and his work is simply beautiful.

Zack and co-owner Karena Martin would like to see The Urban Pet become a central meeting place for pet owners, a place they can feel comfortable bringing their pets and meeting friends.  Please visit to learn more about The Urban Pet, and stop by one of their stores today. You will be very happy that you did, as it will easily become one of your favorite places to shop.
