Cat-World was established in 2002 and has grown into one of the largest cat websites in the world. With over 1,000 articles on all aspects of cat health, cat care, and general cat information as well as a Facebook page with a large following and a private Facebook group for cat lovers to share photos and ask questions.
I have been providing information and writing educational articles about cats since 1997 when I first started as a contributor for the now-defunct Acme Cat Chat as well as a moderator on Cats of Australia. My knowledge of cats continues to grow, and I am continually learning up-to-date information on cat health and cat welfare via respected veterinarians and other cat experts who are equally passionate about cats.
I currently live in Sydney, New South Wales with my husband and two children. We share our home with four cats and two dogs.
When I am not writing about cats, I enjoy running and photography.
Update: In December 2019 I made the decision to transition back to cat-world.com, it is the same site, with the same owner, just a more appropriate domain name to reflect the international reach of this site.

Meet the cats:
My cats are a regular feature on the site as unpaid models.
Calvin and Norman are two bonded Tonkinese cats who we adopted from the RSPCA in 2017. Monty is a chocolate Oriental and Melody is a calico Domestic Shorthair who we fostered in 2013 and has never left.
Cat-World aims to provide safe, accurate, trustworthy and up-to-date information on all aspects of cat care.
Safety and accuracy are vital when reading information online, especially when it comes to the health and welfare of our pets. In 2019, the team at Southern Cross Veterinary Clinic are coming on board to proofread, and fact check articles to ensure they are safe, accurate and up-to-date. Any article which has been checked by Southern Cross Veterinary Clinic will say so at the start of the post.
The information provided on Cat-World is designed to support, not replace the relationship that exists between a cat/cat carer and the cat’s veterinarian.
While I pride myself on my research, any advice offered on Cat-World is from a non-medical point of view. However, my number one priority is to provide accurate and up-to-date information, which involves careful and thorough research from respected professional and authority sources (universities, specialist veterinarians, medical journals and veterinary books). I check, check again and triple check to make sure the information on this site is accurate. I will always cite sources so that you can check the validity of the information presented on this site. Medicine changes and evolves continuously; all articles on Cat-World are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure the information is fresh, up-to-date and accurate.
Always be wary of information sites who don’t quote their sources and do not provide information on who owns and writes for the site. When researching, look for credible sources and take your time. Don’t automatically assume that the first result in Google (or your other chosen browser) is the best or most accurate result that is not always the case.
Above all, always remember that your cat’s veterinarian is the best person to provide information and care in regards to your cat’s health and welfare. The information provided on this website is designed to supplement, not replace the expertise of your veterinarian.
