  • About Cat-World

    Cat-World was established in 2002 and has grown into one of the largest cat websites in the world, with a large library that covers cat health, cat care, and general cat information.

    We have been writing about cats for over twenty years, and first started as a contributor for the now-defunct Acme Cat Chat as well as a moderator on Cats of Australia. We are continually publishing up-to-date information on cat health and cat welfare via respected veterinarians, behaviorists, and other cat experts who are equally passionate about cats.

    About The Founder

    Cat-World was founded by Julia Wilson in 2002 – more than twenty years ago. Julia lives in a small town an hour south of Sydney, New South Wales with her husband and two children. They share their home with four cats and two dogs.

    Julia’s 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 is still with us.

    Mission statement:

    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.

    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). Sources are listed inline or at the bottom of every article 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.

    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 on Cat-World is designed to supplement, not replace the expertise of your veterinarian.
