    I first told you about Isis and Joan back in December. When Joan, who suffers from terminal liver disease, was rushed to a hospice last November, she only had one worry: what would happen to her beloved cat Isis? Joan continued to pay the rent on her apartment and frantically contacted animal rescue groups to find a new home for Isis. Her plight caught the attention of Dorian Wagner, the founder of the Cute Transport Network, who went to work and launched a social media miracle. Within days,...

    In this day of e-books and internet videos, its rare to come across a really beautiful coffee table type book of cat photographs, so I was delighted when I received a review copy of Pure, Cat Portraits. The photos in this book are taken by Lucas, cat photographer and creative director of cat brand Catit.

    What makes this book different from other cat photo books is that all the pictures were taken against a simple white background. Lucas let the cats pose however they wanted to, and the result...

    Inappropriate elimination (urinating outside the litter box) is one of the most commonly reported problems in cats. Some of these cats have issues with some aspect of their litter box, others have a medical condition that may make urinating painful, and some are urine marking, a behavior that is also known as spraying.

    Cat guardians often confuse urinating and spraying. Urine spraying is a territorial behavior. Cats stand upright and deposit a small amount of urine on vertical surfaces. Cats...

    Did you know that you can actually find the word scaredy-cat in the Merriam Webster dictionary? If you have one of those fearful cats, you already know that her fear may be affecting her quality of life. A fearful cat is a stressed cat.

    Ive been spending quite a bit of time lately thinking about how important it is to maintain a positive mindset and how challenging it can be in a world that constantly bombards us with messages that are anything but positive.

    Everything you think and speak affects your mindset

    Maintaining a positive mindset requires commitment and discipline. If you wake up first thing in the morning and think about how hard your day is going to be and how many problems youll be facing, then chances are,...

    Masha, a long-haired tabby cat, saved the life of a baby abandoned in the streets of Russia after she climbed into the box he was discarded in and kept him warm, health officials said. The New York Post reports that Masha got the attention of passers by by meowing. She is very placid and friendly, so when I heard her meowing, I thought that perhaps she had injured herself, said Obninsk city resident Irina Lavrova. Normally she would have come and said hello to me. You can imagine my shock...
