Kitty litter always sticking? La Mia Mascota Vet and Pet Shop

Those who have cats know what it is like to find the litter stuck to the box, incomplete clumping, and the smell of a dirty box. Even the cats don’t want to use that! Coming soon to La Mia Mascota Vet and Pet Shops (and currently available in the Veterinary offices) is Canada cat litter. It’s from Canada. It’s formulated to avoid those awful problems just mentioned. What a great product to get for your feline friends and for your own ease and comfort.

Canada Cat Litter is a product that clumps so rapidly that it doesn’t stick to the borders or bottom of the cat box. It lasts a long time, because it is 100% clumping and has an absorption of 350%. The grains of the cat litter are irregular so that it can absorb liquids more quickly than other similar products. Therefore, it uses less litter and is more economical. It is made of pure sodium bentonite and effectively controls odors. Available in 3 sizes: 6,12, and 18 Kg bags. Ask for it today – we can deliver.

We offer the best in food and toys as well as medicines and veterinary care.

We would like to remind you that we now have 2 full service veterinary offices – one in Cuenca and another in Challuabamba – in addition to our pet store locations noted below. Call any of the numbers below to make appointments for your pet.

Main office Vet: Arrayan y Alamos; Location 1:CC Plaza Las Americas local #27; Location 2: El Vergel Centro Comercial ground floor – first shop from the entrance; Location 3 El Batan shopping in front of Multicines; and Location 4: CC Plaza Sur Shopping #4 Challuabamba

Recommendation for Leonardo the TechGuy

My employee’s son starts university and needed a real computer (the family has very little money and the two teenagers have been using their parents’ cellphones as computers for school). A friend donated a computer that needed some repair work. I contacted Leonardo–he got back to me immediately and came over to look at the computer. He diagnosed the problem, took the computer and told me the cost. I paid him up-front and, since I’d told him it was a rush, he brought the repaired computer back the next day! (He said he’d worked on it all night, since the computer was needed right away.)

On time, competent, very reasonably priced, prompt with repairs and advice–what more could one want? I recommend Leonard highly.

Recommendation for Protemax, glass lamination

I wanted clear window film to prevent my furniture, rugs, etc. from fading. A friend recommended Protemax, which promptly sent a proposal with information about the product and cost. A few days later, three young people installed the 3M film quickly and correctly at the quoted price, which was much lower than I expected. I’m very pleased with the professional way Protemax handled the job. The glass is clear and stronger than before, thanks to the 8- micron thickness I selected. See http://www.protemax.ec

Recommendation for Elizabeth Gavilanes and Mateo Nauta, house/pet sitting

Elizabeth and Mateo are veterinary students in Cuenca. They took care of our house and 2 cats while we were in the US for 3 weeks. We came home to happy cats and a spotless house. They are very professional and have a contract that allows both parties to exchange information about the job/pets/special needs and contains all of their contact information. Elizabeth sent us photos and videos of the cats, which added to our level of comfort while we were away. We highly recommend them – also known as
M & E Pet Sitting Service.

Address: The service took place at our house in El Vergel.

Recommendation for La Chakra – Matias, organic food/specialty store

I am new to the area and Matias was the first person that I met here in Cuenca. He manages a wonderful store full of the finest organic products including nuts, flours, honey, shampoos and it’s no wonder they have a five-star rating.

Matias runs the store for his cousin and he is the most wonderful person to help you with your needs. Very kind and patient, his English is excellent and I made a new friend here.

The store also carries CBD oil and other products to help you with your personal care.

Recommendation for Nandala Cocina Vegetariana, restaurant

The newly opened Nandala Cocina Vegetariana is a delight start to finish. The cheery decor, staff and fireplace were a welcomed relief on a gloomy rainy Cuenca day. The noodles and vegetables in the Pad Thai were cooked to perfection, with slightly crisp vegetables and a wonderful mingling of flavors. Spicey sauce comes on the side. My friend had a huge bowl of Ramen which she struggled to finished. On my next trip I’m going to try the Burrito. We were offered a complimentary side dish of perfectly cooked twice fried French fries with dipping sauces. I was full but I couldn’t resist. Nandala is definitely a welcomed addition to the culinary arts in Cuenca.
