Cat Wisdom 101 is a wealth of information for cat parents and those who love cats, and I personally enjoy the variety of educational and entertaining content that is shared. Layla’s passion for cats comes through loud and clear; when she talks practically about understanding cat behavioural issues, but also when she interviews a cat personality or reviews a cat-related book. This is one of my favourite cat blogs; for credible advice but also for great reading recommendations to add to my bookshelf.
Traci is an awesome new blogger based in Australia. Check out her blog Pawesome Cats.
Astrology buffs, it’s the dawning of the age of Aquarius, at least this month. Find out if your cat is an Aquarian. My monthly Astro Kitty column is at Catster where I write about various feline-related topics. If you read all the way down here you win $1000. Just kidding, but you get extra purrrrrs and headbonks. If you are a blogger and leave a comment I promise to visit you and comment. Hope to see you here on Monday when it’s quiet and cozy.
