A note about this series: Introducing cats to other animals can be a tricky affair. That said, it can also be smooth sailing, with very little potential conflict. And, it could fall somewhere between the two. Every animal is an individual, as is every human and every household. That’s exactly why I’ve made this series […]
In my experience, bringing a new cat into another cat’s home can either be seen as no big deal, or a huge challenge. The truth, however, generally lies somewhere in the middle. In this series, we will explore the critical ins-and-outs of making this transition as smooth as possible for all involved—both feline and human!Episode […]
As mentioned in Part One of this series, there is no stock, one-size-fits-all solution to litter box issues. So while writing my latest book, Total Cat Mojo, I presented my Ten Litter Box Commandments as a way of offering some general starting-point guidelines for your problem-solving detectivism. This four-part series is a condensed rundown of what […]

While writing my new book, Total Cat Mojo, I encountered a pretty big roadblock when it came to encapsulating what I know about litter box problems(and one that I run into when explaining to clients): There is no stock, one-size-fits-all solution to these issues. They are like pee and poop-shaped snowflakes, as individual as the cat […]
Hey Everyone –
I’m privileged enough to have written several books on the subject of cats and my life with them. I often get questions about certain topics and realize that there’s no better way to answer them than to reference what I’ve already written. This is one of those times.
This excerpt is from my latest […]
Do you have a closet cat, an under-the-bed cat, someone whose primary objective is to remain unnoticed, safe from scrutiny? If so, you likely have a“Wallflower Cat” on your hands.
Hiding is about being small and invisible. It’s hanging out in what we call the “Unconfident Where.” Believe me, there is a stark difference in body […]

I know I’m dating myself here in a major way, but back when I was a kid and Morris the Cat was pretty much the only feline celebrity (yes, kids, that was way before the interwebs), the 9 Lives commercials would end with a tagline about how their food was for finicky cats like Morris. […]
Declawing has always been a very important issue to me, as it should be for anybody who loves cats (or respects animals). This video is pretty self-explanatory but, just to recap: I got a last minute interview request from a “news” show discussing proposed legislation to ban declawing in the state of New Jersey. I […]
