With seemingly endless options for cat food, it turns out that cat owners like me are getting more and more choosy, with popular brands like Meow Mix vs Purina being more closely examined and some debating what kind… Read More >
When I adopted my kitten, Asher, I knew already just how tricky it could be to restrain a cat for the ever so important task of clipping nails. At the same time, I also knew I wouldn’t be… Read More >
From the best cat gear to kitty litter that stays fresh, or you’re like me, you want the best for your cat–but if your cat isn’t responding well to their pet food, you may need to consider the possibility of a chicken-free diet. Allergies to cat food are not especially common: some estimates place food allergies at under 1 percent of cats– but the effects can be anything from a quality of life nuisance to life-threatening.
But there are also pet owners like myself, who have a cat that simply has a strong preference, or thrives, on certain proteins over others. Ever since I fed my cat salmon cat food, he has turned his nose up at chicken cat food. Finding the best cat food is often challenging– but spending s
How Often To Take Your Cat To The Vet
As a lifelong pet owner and now cat owner, I know just how important it is that a cat gets proper health care–but surprisingly few of us really know how often we need to take our cat to the vet.
For some cat owners, just having their cat by their side is a miracle, and that’s the case for one New York family. In a story reminiscent of the Homeward Bound movies I grew up with, Buddy, a family cat, was stranded during an onslaught of snowstorms that blanketed the Southhold region.

And when it comes to dental health, selecting the best cat or kitten toothpaste can make a big difference.
While you’d think cat essentials, like kitty litter and the best litter boxes, may top a new pet owner’s list, it turns out that taking care of your cat’s teeth is just as important.
But it also turns out that most pet owners don’t think enough about it. While an estimated 95 percent of pet owners brush their own teeth daily, just 8 percent brush their dog’s teeth. That percentage gets worse for cats. A mere 4 percen
My cat loves fish-based cat food, especially salmon– but not only doesn’t every cat like fish; some cats actually do better with fish-free cat food, especially if it’s the best quality.
Fish is undoubtedly a popular choice for cat food, especially salmon. You need only look at online pet supply retailers, like Chewy.com or Amazon, to see just how much pet owners, and cats alike, are clamoring for fish-flavored cat food.
But it turns out that fish isn’t the most popular option, at least amongst the entire pet food market. In a pet food survey across several countries, the United States included, chicken topped the ingredient of choice not only for dog food but for dry cat food as well.
Wet vs dry cat food did fare a little differently. In wet cat food, there were more diverse options in terms of popularity, with chicken still reigning supreme in t
