The Discerning Cat

When I decided to become a cat parent I got straight online and I couldn’t find the type of information that I wanted. So many sites were about cat rescues – I had no idea it was such a big thing!

My site focuses on cat breeds and cat behavior. Finding the right breed for you is a big decision and there are many factors to consider. Once you are a cat parent it can be quite difficult to ascertain what our finicky felines really want. My two Siberian Cats, Alexei and Vladimir, often act in ways I don’t quite understand. We have also started working with veterinary experts who review our articles for accuracy and also provide further advice based on their experience.
