For pet lovers by pet lovers. Midtown Crossing is preparing to welcome its newest retail partner, Long Dog Fat Cat Natural Pet Food.

Set to open in fall 2017, Long Dog Fat Cat specializes in all-natural pet foods, homemade dog treats and custom cakes, unique pet supplies and stress-free grooming. Owners Indre Seibutyte and Kazu Gotoh opened their first store in Omaha in 2009. The Midtown Crossing location at 3201 Farnam St. will be their third.

“Our friendly, knowledgeable staff really sets us apart and helps us build that strong relationship with our customers,” Gotoh said.“Our own pets are family and we know our customers in midtown and throughout Omaha feel the same way.”

Long Dog’s arrival fills a pet supply void in midtown left by the closing of Three Dog Bakery. Pet owners/lovers Seibutyte and Gotoh came to the United States and Omaha as exchange students. (Seibutyte is from Lithuania; Gotoh is from Japan.) They wanted to bring a concept to the city that featured top-grade, natural pet foods to and fresh, handmade locally-sourced, custom-made fresh doggie cakes and cookies concept to Omaha.

In addition to supporting individual pet owners, their stores support local rescue organizations, including Nebraska Dachshund Rescue, Heartland German Shepherd Rescue, Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue and Hands Hearts and Paws.

The arrival of Long Dog Fat Cat helps underscore the pet-friendly nature of the Midtown Crossing neighborhood. Pets are welcome in all of Midtown Crossing’s apartments and condominiums as well as in Turner Park. Restaurants, including CRAVE, Cantina Laredo and Black Oak Grill, have pet-friendly patios, and the neighborhood is known for hosting its share of fun, pet-focused events – from the Patio “Pup” Crawl to Halloween Tricks for Treats
