Think of Randy Klein’s holistic shop as a Whole Foods for dogs, cats, birds and other small animals, complete with organic skin-care products and high-quality munchies. But it’s not just the comestibles that are socially conscious: Whiskers donates a portion of its proceeds to local shelters and offers in-store cat adoptions. Calm Fluffy’s nerves by following the instructions on a Whiskers pet reflexology chart ($1) and make bathtime chemical-free with Dr. Shawn’s organic itch-relief shampoo ($23). And if a certain kitty is obsessed with treats, she’ll go wild for Kookamunga catnip blowing bubbles ($6).
