You just got a cat and became a cat parent…well, congratulations – it is the beginning of an amazing time!

Our website is a place where all cat parents, experienced and first time, are more than welcome.

Me – Jane Mitchell, a proud mom of a sweet Scottish fold named Lulu and my team of professionals will successfully guide you through every step of the cat parenting journey. 

Being a responsible and devoted cat parent is a full-time job. Challenging and daunting at first, on the long-run, parenting a cat is an amazingly unmatched experience.

If your beloved cat is a typical family cat it relishes your presence, revels in activities with you, thrives on your touch, delights in hearing your voice, regrets your absence, and probably warns you if it thinks there is imminent danger. Although sometimes it does not show it, your cat cares for you – truly, deeply cares for you.

The whole philosophy of raising a kitten is not much different from that of bringing up kids. We teach our kids good manners, socially acceptable hygiene, and how to control their natural aggression. We monitor their safety, channel their curiosity into constructive pursuits, and ask others who are more knowledgeable to help educate them. It should be the same with our feline family members. In a nutshell, getting a new kitten and raising it into a well-mannered and well-adjusted cat is a process in which you should use all the help you can get.

Luckily, we are here to provide that help. We are in this together. Along the way, we will share many milestones and wins.

While your veterinarian is important, the day-to-day health and happiness of your cat is in your hands. That is the main reason for our blogmycattips.com

In the relatively short period since vets first picked up stethoscopes, there has been a wonderfully positive trend in our attitude toward cats. That attitude was instigated by you – the devoted and responsible cat parent. Your compassion, commitment, and concern for your cat’s physical and emotional welfare initiated the greatest-ever advances in cat care and welfare. Veterinarians and pet-related healthcare businesses responded to your demands with effective vaccines, anti-parasitic drugs, and nutritionally sound diets. These forms of preventative medicine are at the core of medically caring for your cat.

Today, virtually all diagnostics and treatments used in human medicine are available for cats. For example, with new drugs, cats with heart disease have longer and more comfortable lives. Advances in our understanding of kidney disease have led to foods being developed that prolong the working life of impaired kidneys. New surgical techniques have been perfected that can save damaged or diseased limbs that, previously, could only be treated by amputation.

We are frequently faced with the same question – what is the most effective way of prolonging my cat’s life. The answer is more obvious than what you may think – simply by acknowledging that your cat is not a person in cute disguise. By understanding how your cat thinks, like the hierarchy-focused feline it is, and by understanding its unique nutritional, physical, and mental stimulation needs, you will begin to understand the responsibilities caring for your four-legged furry baby entails.

We are lucky that serendipity has given us such a bountiful relationship with such a unique, graceful and kindred species. To honor that luck, we should compose a feline version of a serenity prayer. We would pledge to accept the things we cannot change, such as cats doing cat things – not eating when the food bowl is half full or licking their private parts in public. Have the courage to change the things we can, such as learn about cat behavior and understand why cats do cat things. And ultimately, we would have to find the wisdom to know the difference between natural cat behavior and a cat in distress mode.
