Aging is a slow and gradual process, and there are things you can do to help keep your senior cat happy and healthy well into her golden years.Continue Reading

Another consideration that is important to me when choosing cosmetics and personal care products is that they are not tested on animals.Continue Reading

So now when I hear about important things, it’s through a family member, people I work with and friends.

Like when my dad called me to tell me about this orange tabby.Continue Reading

Meet MezzoMixx, a Very Unusual Male Tortie


The vast majority of tortoiseshell cats are female, because two X chromosomes are required to produce black, gold and orange coloring. Male cats only have one X and one Y chromosome, so technically it’s genetically almost impossible for a male to inherit the tortoiseshell coloring.

Due to the chromosome imbalance, male tortoiseshell cats are (usually) sterile.Continue Reading
