That, despite the popularity of cats on the internet, it’s still a dogs’ world out there?
We talk about all things cat here. If you’ve ever asked “why does my cat do that?” You belong here. If you’ve ever wondered how in the world to get two cats to get along, or if your senior cat needs a friend, or what to feed your new kitten, you have a place here.
The complexity of the feline mind and the human-feline bond fascinate me. Cats talk to us, we just have to know how to listen. Wonder how to introduce multiple cats to each other? Concerned about nutrition, health issues or litterbox politics?
We can help you if your are interested in cat behavior, enrichment, play, product reviews, pet travel reports, adventure cat experiences or cat shows.

"Malena is patient, encouraging, flexible, generous, and an inspiration. She is everything you could ever ask for in a... teacher. Every time I come across... [something] that feels frustrating or confusing, she finds an innovative way to tackle it or explain it... her rates are totally feasible, and she's even more flexible now with the option of video lessons. I've grown... leaps and bounds in the last year alone, and have had wonderfully positive experiences with our showcase recitals (even with my immense stage fright). I adore Malena and can't recommend her enough."
