Hi nice to meet you!
Hello and welcome to catcareblog.com! My name is Lisa Preston and I am the cat care expert behind this blog. Whilst I’m not formally vet trained in any way, I do spend a lot of my time reading and researching all things cats.
I have owned cats all my life and still remember my cat from age 5 called Puss in Boots and yes he was a huge Ginger Tom Cat! I have to admit that most of my fur babies have been big ginger boys but there have been a few Tabbys along the way. That doesn’t mean to say I don’t love all cats, because I do!
When I had my own children, we went through a phase of calling our cats George. We had some traumatic experiences with the first few kittens but that’s a story for another day. We had George I, then George II, then George III and finally George IV. Unfortunately, George IV passed away from kidney disease, much to our distress, late last year. At the start of 2020, we decided to make a fresh start and have welcomed Toby into the family! And yes he is a Ginger Boy! You’re going to hear a lot more about Toby in the coming months.
I am a full-time work-at-home Mom and in case you haven’t guessed, I’m passionate about cats! Not only have they been the perfect work-at-home companions but they’ve also given me so much unconditional love over the years. For this reason, I’m also passionate about giving back to them by way of this blog. If just one article helps a human to better care for their cat then I’ve done my job!
Meet the star of the show!
Meet Toby. He was born September 2019 and has only been with us a few months but already I’m totally besotted!!
He is the most affectionate, loving animal we could have wished for. However, he is naughty and his antics will be coming to you via the blog Toby’s Tales. All I can say for now is that we have met far more of our neighbours over the past few months than we have in the last few years!!!!
He’s a wonderful bundle of joy and his health and happiness are paramount to us. I hope you enjoy Toby’s Tales. I’m working on the stories right now and will bring them to you asap.
Why I started Catcareblog!
As I said previously I love cats and they are truly my passion. They’ve given me and our family so much unconditional love over the years. However, it was a mixture of losing George IV and the arrival of Toby that made me really want to put this blog together. There is so much information out there when it comes to looking after and caring for cats so I wanted to put it in a place that was easy to navigate and regularly updated. It’s my goal to scour the internet for each topic and bring the most relevant, up-to-date and useful information into one place. So I hope you love wondering through the pages and finding ways to help the health and happiness of your cat! If just one article helps a human to better care for their cat then I’ve done my job!
Sending lots of love and cat kisses
