Cats Need Their Space

All cats have territories, which they defend and depend on for food, safety, and other resources. Cats establish their territories by scent marking and scratching.

What’s a Girl To Do?

So here is my dilemma. And it happens so often I am writing in my blog about it. For years I have been trying to educate people about the regular grooming needs of cats. And I don’t mean running a comb through them once a year. Same experience for friends of mine that are dog

Cat Hair
