What cats need and want

I just read an excellent article on the Pet Connection blog about cats. Although it addresses shelter cats and how to handle them, there is helpful advice for pet sitters. Read about how to handle and calm a wary cat who is stressed by being handled by an unknown person (which is basically anyone but his owner). Thanks Kim Thornton for an excellent article! 

Kim is also one of my pet sitting clients. She brought her three cavalier spaniels, Twyla, Bella and Harper, to stay with me while she was in Washington DC at the No-Kill Conference last week.

In this photo, Harper meets my box turtles. The kitties above are my two, Sterling and Whisper, both Silver Persians adopted from Bonita Animal Control.
