Welcome to the new blogs section of The Daily Cat. As a cat owner and cat lover myself, I am looking forward to reading about the topics that matter the most to me and my cats. We’ll be discussing hot news stories, cat adoption and rescue reports, solutions to common problems, profiles of people who make a difference in the lives of cats, veterinary health tips, personal stories and so much more.
Our bloggers are some of the best and most respected on the Web. Straight from her busy San Diego veterinary practice, Dr. Jessica Vogelsang blogs about important health issues that can affect your cat. In her popular Pet News and Views blog, Michele Hollow promotes what she calls “the positive side of animal welfare.” You also won’t want to miss the musings of “Boris Kitty,” who shares his views with the help of owner Kelly Hoffman.This is just a taste of what’s in store, so please be sure to check in regularly with us. We also look forward to hearing from you and learning about your own cats, kitty experiences and feline adventures.
