I love seeing more and more cat product companies taking into account that their products do not just have to please cats, they also have to make the human happy.

Playtime is vitally important to a cat’s mental and physical health, and it’s especially important for indoor cats. Even though cats may sleep up to 16 hours a day, when they’re awake, they need stimulation, and the best way to accomplish this is with play. In the wild, when lions, tigers and other wild cats aren’t sleeping, they’re either hunting, or teaching their young to hunt.

A London woman recently married her cat in hopes of avoiding rental restrictions which forced her to rehome three previous pets due to landlords who rejected pets. She is facing eviction again despite previous permission from her landlord to have a cat.

When Love Grows Slowly: How a Shy, Unassuming Cat Changed My World

Amber

Falling in love with a cat is no different than falling in love with a person. Sometimes, it’s love at first sight. That’s what happened for me when I saw Buckley, the subject of my first book, Buckley’s Story: Lessons from a Feline Master Teacher, in a cage in the back of the animal hospital I managed at the time. I fell in love instantly.

Other times, it’s a slower process. Continue Reading
