As many DC fans already know, Design + Conquer is a strong supporter of animal welfare. Not only will we never use animal products in our designs, we also support organizations such as the World Society for the Protection of Animals and the SPCA.
To help bring awareness to the importance of pet adoption [versus buying pets through pet stores and mills] we've produced a short video, starring none other than Frodo, one of our two adopted studio cats. Frodo showed a natural inclination to go for off-leash walks at a young age. These walks progressed to hikes. Amazingly, Frodo stays close on outings [often leading the way], and protests when he needs to head back home to his secret lair. Really, he's a dog in cat's clothing...and a true cat-conqueror.

Happy Conquering and cat hiking,
Design + Conquer
