Best Pet Store


Owing to the higher-end goods they stock, places like PS9 Pet Supplies used to be called “specialty” pet stores. Now, thankfully, we can just call ’em pet stores. That doesn’t make PS9 any less special, however. The staff that keeps things purring inside this narrow Williamsburg storefront is knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful, without crossing that crucial line into up-selling territory. The store, which has been in the neighborhood for nearly a decade, is also a great source for shoppers looking to expand their own feline family. There are cats here eligible for adoption, and a few find a loving home each week. “They’re all rescue,” a staffer reports. “They are found on the street by [the North Brooklyn Cats neighborhood group] or they are pulled from euthanasia lists from the city shelter.”
