My name is Aleta Ridings and I am the founder of Jessi’s Paw. Jessi’s Paw was established because of my enormous grief at the loss of my own dear Jessi and the consequent extreme empathy and compassion I feel for other pet owners during their own loss.
Since Jessi’s passing in November of 2013, a new love has come into my life. He is my baby panther prince named Jags and my love for him bowls me over. Another darling has come along too, and that is my husband’s and my sweet grandbaby Cooper, a fearless gray tabby whose dad is my stepson. Our precious Maltese grandbaby Luci rounds out our threesome of babies and it is my joy to care for these three little jewels.
I love all animals, be it dog, cat, ferret, rabbit, lizard, or dragonfly, (…and even snakes!) and I believe that every one of them is here to teach us a lesson. I think with our beloved pets, that lesson is usually unconditional love. I believe the ones that momentarily cross our path simply carry a message for us. We just need to be open to hear it.
