Hello! Welcome to Thriving Cat. This site is designed to provide real, personally tested solutions to common cat behavior and health issues. Does your cat pee outside the box? Does your cat have gum disease and need expensive tooth cleaning at the vet and even tooth extraction? Does your cat throw up on the carpet? There are easy solutions to these problems! I have been through all this and more and want to share the easy solutions so more people can have healthy, happy cats in a healthy, happy home.
My personal mission is to make cat ownership easier for the pet parent and better for the cat! There are so many cats that need good homes. So many sitting in the pound right now. If people could care for their cats in an easier and even cheaper manner, maybe more cats will get adopted. Maybe those adopted cats will be healthier and happier and maybe some owners who may be at their wits end due to problems like those I list above will be able to keep their cat instead of giving it up.
So, that is why I started this site. I want to help you help your cat and your sanity! Please feel free to comment, send me an email or pass on additional advice and suggestions. The more involvement we can generate, the more cats and their humans can be helped with this information. Post your cat pictures, cat stories and cat anecdotes. All positive and helpful comments and questions are welcome.
Much of the information here applies to dogs too! The same solutions to anxiety and upset stomachs leading to vomiting for example can be used for dogs and cats. The same nutritional supplements I recommend here can be used for dogs as well. I grew up with a dog team of Alaska huskies, I love dogs too!
I hope to have a regularly updated blog with new posts each week.
Stay tuned for all the help and happiness to come!
