    Strong demand by cat-loving customers


    "Last year we came out with the dog advent calendar, which seemed pretty odd until we got out in the stores and there was quite a following for it," Colin Fields, vice president of merchandising for Trader Joe's, said in the podcast episode announcing the advent calendars for cats.
