Cozy Cat Beds for Cats Who Are Cavers

Do your cats like to snuggle under blankets or comforters? Do they like to sleep partially covered? Jackson Galaxy calls these cats “cavers*.” These are the cats who will often find a space in a closet or under the bed, and you may not see them out and about as much as other cats. It’s important to provide alternate, safe spaces for these kitties so they can cave in comfort.

We have two cat beds for you that will make your caving kitties purr!Continue Reading

Why Cats Hate Going to the Vet, and What to Do About It

cat_vet_stethoscope

America’s cats are facing a healthcare crisis. The findings of a feline health study conducted by Bayer Health Care found that 52% of America’s 74 million cats are not receiving regular veterinary care. 83% of cats are seen by a vet during the first year after they’re adopted, but less than half of them ever return. These statistics are alarming, especially in light of the fact that cats are masters at masking any signs of illness. By the time a cat shows symptoms, a disease may already be in the advanced stages, which often makes treatment less effective and more costly.

Two of my favorite cat people are joining forces to help raise awareness about this growing concern. Continue Reading

Jackson Galaxy coined the term “catification” on his hit TV show “My Cat From Hell.” The concept is based on the fact that at their core, even our domesticated cats are still wild animals, and while we’ve invited them into our homes to share our lives, we can’t expect them to completely give up all their instincts. We have to look at our living space from the cat’s point of view and provide an environment that keeps them stimulated.Continue Reading

Armed with his signature guitar case filled with cat toys, Spirit Essences and other training aids, Jackson trains the humans as much as he trains the cats, since the majority of feline behavior problems are usually caused by humans who don’t understand cats’ natural behaviors.
