    Hello Jessica,
    I just finished your article on International cat day and I think it was wonderful to know just how you improve your cat’s well being just by taking the proper amount of steps to maintain and love your animal. Thank you for this information.

      Hello Jerald,

      Thank you! Yes, it is amazing how having a cat can go from stressful to easy if you just have the right products! I was so relieved when I found these supplements and other cat products that actually work.

      Thanks for stopping by,

    Jessica, this and your other posts are awesome!

    We had a Bengal (2 to be exact) and because they’re very close to a wild cat, their cat box stunk like no other. We’ve had plenty of cats in our time, but this was something else. If you didn’t get to it right away, it could clear the basement (so to speak). I’m glad you mentioned the litter and keeping it clean, as that’s a big part of a happy cat and happy cat/human relationships!

      Hello Dave,

      I understand the stink. My Norwegian Forest Cat has the very bad habit of not burying! I don’t know why but he buries number 1 but never number 2! Sometimes I consider a self scooping litter box but we have not tried it yet! Perhaps someday I will have a review of one here!

      Thanks for stopping by,

    Cats are some of my favorite animals, independant and full of attitude. I’ve always had a kitty in my life and they have always brought me much joy.

      I agree. Cats are unique, beautiful and interesting pets but most of all they are loving and wonderful friends.

    Wow! You have a French Charteux? That is a very lucky find to discover at a cat shelter. I am sure you are treating her well and giving her lots of love. All shelter cats need love.

    I used to have a cat I picked up from a PetCo on Adopt a Cat Day. She was so sweet. She used to be owned by a woman with cancer, so she got pet a lot. It was no different when I brought her home. Unfortunately, she was old, arthritic, and tumorous, so she had to be put down but she brought a lot of joy to my life for the time she was with me. It is good to hear someone else enjoying their shelter cats. I appreciate you for sharing in your article.

    Thank you for sharing and I hope you make it a great day!

      Thank you Alex! We have been so happy to find 4 wonderful cats all from shelters and rescue groups. They are all sweet and loving. Our most recent kitty is the oldest at 14. We have only had her a few months but she is amazingly healthy. The vet was impressed. She even has good teeth which is unusual at that age.

      I am so sorry you lost your girl. That is really sad. It is nice you gave her a good home though.

      Our French Chartreux girl is a total princess. She acts like she is queen of the house. I can’t imagine how she ended up in the pound on death row.
      Thank you for adopting cats!
