We used to have articles about cats from feeding, litter box training to vaccinations spread throughout our website. Many of you have commented about how useful certain articles were or had an article you would like to see added. Our newest website is completely redesigned to be mobile and work on phones, tablets and computers. So we decided to place all of our articles in one place and call it something original; For Your Information. Okay, you get the idea.
I hope you find our collection of reference articles useful and enlightening. Most of the material is written by experts in their field that can be validated easily if one is interested. Some articles can be somewhat opinionated, but they are very useful and are simply included for you to view and help form your own opinion about said topic.
As always, if you have a specific article about a related topic you would like us to include, then please send me an email with your reasons why we maybe should post and the appropriate links. We all benefit from the knowledge. Better informed pet owners makes for healthier and happier pets.

Cat Body Language

Felines are obligate carnivores. In short, this means they must eat meat to survive. Cats do not actually need vegetables and carbohydrates in their diets. In fact, they can only tolerate carbohydrates in small amounts. Instead, cats thrive on high-protein, high-moisture diets rich in substances only found in meat.
The United States is way behind the rest of the civilized world in its attitude toward declawing of cats. Declawing has been illegal in many countries that either consider declawing illegal or inhumane ... Cat Fancy organizations and veterinarians are mounting protests against declawing, calling it inhumane and unnecessary.
Cats hate dirty, stinky litter boxes, and may be driven to search for substitutes, whether it be a corner of the carpet or in a basket of clean laundry in the closet. Think about it: do you enjoy using one of those "portable potties" commonly found in public places?
The time may come when you will need all the help you can find on kitten care. This could be by chance: discovering a box of dumped kittens along the road, or by intent: bringing home a litter of feral kittens to socialize them for adoption, or adopting a young kitten yourself.
