hy am I the Cat Mumma:
Because I have strong opinions on how we should look after and watch over all our feline freinds. Here is what is important to me!

No judgement, no blame, just solutions:
Life can throw us tough times sometimes and it’s easy to have the best of intentions but the worst of outcomes. I’m not interested in blaming people because they are not doing the best by their cats, I’m hoping that I can inspire and educate. This is a no pitchfork zone. However you will often find me standing on my soap box.

Everyone has the best cat:
No matter how you came to have a cat in your life, you have the very best one. Doesn’t matter what breed you have, or how that cat became part of your family, it is without doubt that they are the very best cat ever. We have a house full of cats and every single one of them is the best cat and my favourite.

Desex and microchip:
There is no reason in todays world for you to have a litter of kittens unless you’re a responsible breeder. Don’t worry, domestic cats will always be around. There is such a large number of domestic kittens and cats dumped every year that the domestic breed becoming a endangered species is a long way off.

 

This is me with our cat Derrick Bennett. He has his own instagram. He is an Abyssinian Cat.

What we need to do is ensure that every cat has a loving home. Currently the number of semi owned and unowned in my state of South Australia is over 100000. Over 11000 end up in animal shelters or homeless. (ref pet ownership in Australia 2016, animal medicines Australia report).

Cat Containment:

Like dogs, Cats must be kept on your property. It’s a very unsafe world out there for cats. They are curious beings and get into all sorts of trouble. Lets create safe environments where they can be entertained and well cared for. Im talking about city cats here. We still have one cat that is free roaming. He is 15yrs old and is always either at the front or back door. He is the last of our cats that were allowed to roam so we still allow him this freedom. But I don’t like it. He is inside more than outdoors these days and he has a curfew. Cats are quick so there will always be times were they might escape and go on an adventure. Refer to value number 1 for my answer to this on.

We don’t Declaw:
I cant believe that this barbaric practice is still happening in countries outside of Australia. If you don’t like cats clawing your stuff, then you are not the right person to be having a cat! I am proud to live in a country that can see that this is simply not on!!

Responsible breeders are not the problem: Yes of course I am going to think this, because I am a responsible cat breeder. If you want a pedigree cat then do your homework. Don’t buy a kitten on a whim, make sure you are dealing with a breeder who is doing the right thing by the breed and by their cats. http://thecatmumma.com/how-to-find-a-reputable-cat-breeder/ will give you more information about what to look for in a breeder.
