Treating Cats with a New CATitutde


We’re looking at cats today with an entirely different lens than say 25 years ago, and this is true for veterinarians too! Veterinarians have responded by creating Cat Friendly Practices. The idea is to offer an approach which is more cat friendly, from the cats’ perspectives. 

The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) Cat Friendly Practices, though, begins with you – and in your homes.

Famed feline veterinarian Dr. Elizabeth Colleran and I have spoken together many times about this cat friendly approach. We’ve talked at veterinary conferences and at veterinary schools – and now we’ll talk with you, at the Windy Kitty Cat Cafe (1746 W. North Avenue), Chicago at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday January 27. You can attend with $10 donation to help out kittens. HERE is the evite.  There will be a swag bag for all attendees.

Dr. Colleran will talk a bit about kitten health, especially growing up in a shelter or foster home environment. I will speak some on kitten socialization.

But the real news is the new Windy Kitty nursery, which is already saving lives, and this is what Purina is there for (aside from expressing their support of AAFP and Cat Friendly Practices). I won’t divulge any more – or I will let the cat out of the bag.

Due to limited space only a limited number of people will be allowed in – so be sure to reply very soon if you are able to attend. 

Even if you live VERY far away (people reading this blog from around the globe), feel free to ask cat questions via the evite or email The session is scheduled to be recording and we will answer as many questions as time allows. If you are attending, you may also submit questions in advance to be more certain your questions are answered.
