We’re always on our toes at Out Of This World with our Kitty Office Staff nearby! Jake, Garfield and Spook are our lovely office cats that provide OOTW’s office with a cozy “home” feel. They are all rescues that have been adopted into our work family—Jake was a rescued stray, and Garfield and Spook were adopted from Country Cat Rescue. Always looking for cuddles and treats, these three really make Out Of This World what it is!
