My Cats are Hissing

So why is it that when I bring home my cats that have been groomed the other cats hiss, or they hiss at each other? Jealousy perhaps? No. Cats have very poor eyesight by nature, yet their sense of smell is 40 times that of a human being. They don’t recognize each other. Even if

Choosing the Right Breed

We all the love the cat we see on the Fancy Feast commercials, but how realistic is owning a cat that is so high maintenance? All the long haired breeds require a lot more grooming than a short haired cat. And a Persian is at the top of the high maintenance list! Trust me, I

Kibble versus Cans
