The inspiration for Think Molly Pet Supplies came from our cat Molly pictured above. Until Molly arrived at eight weeks old I wasn’t a pet person. I never wanted a pet, I saw them as an unwanted expense and commitment. But from the moment I saw her poor little face on the day she arrived, I was hooked.
Unfortunately, she wasn’t to well. Her mum had rejected her and she had infections in both eyes preventing her from seeing and she was very underweight. But with plenty of TLC from my wife Steph and myself. Molly has thrived.
It was while going through this tricky period and researching how to look after Molly I discovered the world of pets. I read forums by people who were one hundred percent committed to their pets and I was blown away at all the wonderful stories. I was beginning to relate to other pet owners and their experiences.
I had gone from being indifferent, to having a passion for all animals. I couldn’t be without Molly, she has enhanced my life and I now understand how these bundles of love touch our hearts.
I had always wanted my own business but had never really done much about it. But through Molly, I had seen that I could combine this passion with that dream. Thanks to Molly, we are a small family business that cares and understands the true meaning of having a pet.
How we got the name “Think Molly”.
Well, I know this is going to sound a bit cheesy, but I promise it’s the truth. I was sitting at the dining room table, working on my laptop and trying to come up with names for our pet supply business, while Molly was attempting to write her memoirs by walking backwards and forwards across the keyboard.
“Molly, stop it. I’m trying to think,” I said. After a few more minutes of writing various combinations of “pet supplies” and Molly persisting in her creative writing pursuits, I said to Molly.
“Come on you’re cat you must be able think of something, come on, think Molly.,”To which she stopped, sat on the keyboard and just looked at me. And there it was, Think Molly, for all your pet’s needs. She’s a genius. No wonder the Egyptians revered cats so much. Thank you Molly.
