About Cat-World

I have been a cat lover since I was a small child. I currently live in 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.

About Cat-World:

Cat-World was established in 2002 with the domain cat-world.com, a year later we were forced to switch to cat-world.com.au, although I always retained ownership of the .com name. The site has grown into one of the largest cat websites in the world. With over 900 articles on all aspects of cat health, cat care, and general cat information as well as a large online community with over 20,000 members and a Facebook page with over 2,000 followers.

In late 2018 a decision was made to slowly transition back to cat-world.com to reflect the fact that this is a site which caters to a worldwide audience. Both sites will remain active, but new content will be added to cat-world.com

Mission statement:

Safety and accuracy are vital when reading information online, especially when it comes to the health of our pets. My mission statement is to ‘provide accurate and up-to-date information on all aspects of cat care’. This involves careful research from respected professional and authority sources (such as universities, specialist veterinarians, medical journals and books), and I will cite those sources in my content. The articles on Cat-World are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure the information is fresh and up-to-date.

Keeping your cat safe: 

Be careful with online medical information.  Any site which publishes advice and/or medical information should provide a name and a way to contact the site owner(s) or person(s) responsible for content.

It is not possible to make a diagnosis online and any information provided is for information purposes only. I hope that the content on this site is of help, but it is never intended to replace a veterinary visit. Always consult a veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns about your cat.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any feedback, comments, suggestions or notice any errors. I cannot answer medical questions but do endeavor to respond to all genuine (non advertising) messages regarding the site.
