Layla  Morgan Wilde-Merlin

The Cat Wisdom 101 team consists of Layla Morgan Wilde, a holistic cat behaviorist/writer/photographer and her three cats: Domino, an outdoor feral who after seven years of living on the porch, decided to come in from the cold and is now officially formerly feral. Odin arrived in October 2010 from a local shelter and became instant best friends with Merlin, an ancient Siamese and boss of all of us. The cats blog every Monday,  often review cat books and act as official cat product testers and models for reviews.

The team shares an antique farmhouse and wild English gardens with her cat man hubby in Westchester County, New York.

At Cat Wisdom 101, we love to have fun but are serious about cat wellness and education. We subscribe in the British philosophy of allowing cats to be their cat selves as naturally as possible. We advocate for spay/neuter/microchip, enriched indoor environments and safe outdoor options when possible i.e. leash trained walks, catios or fenced in gardens. All our cats enjoy the outdoors in our extensive private gardens but are strictly supervised.
