Cats vs Dogs

It’s International Cat Day, so here at SimplyBe HQ we thought we’d introduce you to all of our pets by sharing some of our favorite pet pics and their weird and wonderful habits.  (We couldn’t just show off the cats though, as we have so many dogs between us!) And then you can help us settle the Cats vs Dogs debate once and for all. Place your votes at the bottom of this post!
