Cat Name - How do you name a cat? Includes links to thousands of suggested cat names and their meanings.

Catnip: The Good, the Bad, and the Indifferent
Catnip is a mild stimulant to cats, and its effect may range from wild exhilaration to disinterest, depending on the age of the cat. Learn more about catnip, its effects on cats, and suggestions for its use.

Cat Treats - For rewards - training-appetite stimulant
We all love special treats, and cats are no exception. Cat treats are wonderful as rewards for taking medicine, to conceal the medicine itself, for special applications, such as dental treats or hairball treats, for clicker-training, or for sprinkling on regular food to entice a sick cat to eat.

Declawing and Humane Alternatives
Declawing is outlawed in many European countries, but in the United States and Canada is still considered a viable surgical procedure by many veterinarians, while advocates for cats consider it an inhumane and unnecessary form of mutilation. These articles will help you make an informed decision about declawing your cat.

Drinking Water for Cats
Although cats are descended from desert animals, they still need enough water to maintain optimum kidney health. While cats that eat only raw prepared diets or canned food may get moisture from their diets, cats on primarily dry foods MUST drink fresh, clean water to survive. I recommend a constant source of fresh water for all cats.
