Faces in business: Kathy Pontillo

September 5, 2012 

Title: Owner

Company: Bone Appetite, retail store for cats and dogs

What is best business advice you have ever received?

Do something that you have a passion for and that passion will keep you interested. I am passionate about animals and in turn my customers see that I do care and that I care about their pets specifically. I enjoy what I am doing.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

If I had the stomach, I would love to be a veterinarian. But I can never go through the sad things related to that job. But if I had endless funds I would purchase a large piece of property I'd use for rescued animals, specifically senior animals and create a hospice care for animals.

What is the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

Starting this business.

If you could travel the world where would you start?

I'd go to Italy and from there go back to South Africa and go on to Australia.
