     Item 3. Source or Amount of Funds or Other Consideration .
     On January 3, 2006, OurPet’s Company (“OurPet’s”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Pet Zone pursuant to which OurPet’s purchased substantially all the assets and assumed certain liabilities of Pet Zone (the “Transaction”).
     The purchase price for Pet Zone consisted of $464,998 in cash, of which 12.5% was held back pending a final determination of Pet Zone’s accounts receivable and inventory, 3,082,000 shares of OurPet’s Common Stock and a warrant (“Warrant A”) to purchase 2,729,000 additional shares of OurPet’s Common Stock. The common shares issuable under Warrant A may be purchased at a price of $0.60 per share if exercised on or after January 3, 2006 and on or before January 2, 2009, or $0.675 per share if exercised on or after January 3, 2009 and on or before January 2, 2010, or $0.75 per share if exercised on or after January 3, 2010 and on or before the expiration of Warrant A on January 2, 2011.
     The Purchase Agreement requires Pet Zone to invest $250,000 in OurPet’s in the form of a loan, evidenced by a subordinated note (the “Note”), to be used in the development of new products. In connection with this loan, OurPet’s also issued Pet Zone a warrant (“Warrant B”) to purchase 125,000 shares of Common Stock at a price of $.335 per share. Warrant B terminates on January 3, 2011.

If the Pet Zone Stockholders cease to be the holders of at least 50% of said stock, they will not have a right to designate any directors under the Voting Agreement. The OurPet’s Stockholders may designate a new representative to designate directors to replace Steven Tsengas upon the vote or consent of a majority of the shares of OurPet’s voting stock held by them.
