So Cignal coach Boyet Fernandez said the Hawkeyes must adjust quickly without big man Raymar Jose, who left for Kuala Lumpur to play for the national team in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games.“Losing Raymar during the Finals is a tough one, but we as a team understand that SEA Games basketball gold is very important to our country,” said Fernandez.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

BUSINESS NAME: Cat Business BUSINESS ADDRESS: P.O. Box 109, Topanga PHONE: (310) 455-0550 WEB SITE: www.catbusiness1.com OWNER: Mollie Hogan ESTABLISHED: 2005 NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES: One DESCRIBE YOUR BUSINESS: Cat Business is a unique service that provides personalized training and behavior-solving problems for felines and their humans. I visit people and their domestic housecats in their homes and help them learn to work with their cats, deal with problem behaviors and improve their relationships. IS THIS YOUR FIRST BUSINESS? No WHY DID YOU START THIS BUSINESS? I’m the founder of The Nature of Wildworks, a nonprofit wildlife center that provides public outreach programs using wild animals at www.natureofwildworks.org. We often feature wild and exotic cats in the show, and the most-asked question from the audience is, “How do you train a cat?” WHERE DID YOU GET THE IDEA? I’ve been a wildcat trainer for 25 years, and when the public seemed interested in cat training, I got the idea to apply the same techniques I use with the show animals to people’s housecats at home. HOW LONG WAS IT FROM CONCEPT TO OPENING? Six months. WHAT DID YOU DO DURING THAT TIME? I wrote a couple articles for newspapers, placed an ad in a local magazine and started getting clients almost instantly. WHAT WERE YOUR STARTUP COSTS AND HOW DID YOU FINANCE THE BUSINESS? About $1,000 from savings, just for advertising. WHO DID YOU RELY ON FOR ADVICE? Friends who were business owners and animal lovers. WHAT HADN’T YOU CONSIDERED BEFORE OPENING? Not much. It’s like I predicted it to be. WHAT IS YOUR EXPECTED REVENUE THIS YEAR? $5,000, but you never know. WHAT GOALS DO YOU HAVE FOR THE COMPANY? I would like to see the company grow tremendously. My vision is for this unique endeavor to expand and develop into a service that’s offered to clients throughout Southern California and beyond. Even to the level of setting up a school for cat trainers to employ qualified people to serve clients. To be considered for a small business profile, you should have fewer than 10 employees and be locally based. For a free profile questionnaire, call (818) 713-3699.
