This is a very serious blog post. We are always looking for ways to improve our client services and give you what you’ve been asking for.
So, here is a very special post… about the furry (and non-furry) friends in the Uncanny Content team’s lives. You all loved our Cats & Canines of Uncanny Content post on Instagram, and have even shared serious feedback with us on our lack of cat pics. So… we’re just giving the people what they want.
