Look at those eyes.

Whether you’re indulging in real “spring cleaning” or just everyday cleaning check the products you are using and consider the effect they may have on your cat. Read “Cat-safe Spring and Everyday Cleaning” in the Spring 2024 issue of PetConnections Magazine.

Cat-safe Spring and Everyday Cleaning

We’re bigger, we stand up, we don’t have our faces in the tub, the sink, the toilet (hopefully) or the floor. All these surfaces we clean with chemicals, and what barely affects us can have a profound effect on cats, in part because of their contact with it as well as the fact that they bathe themselves and may also ingest the substance. Cats are walking on the surfaces we’ve cleaned and absorbing substances into bare paw pads and inhaling the fumes.

Great Rescues Day Book

Each month features one of my commissioned portraits of a feline or felines and their rescue story along with a kitty quote on the left page, and on the right page the month name with enough lines for all possible dates, with standard holidays and animal-themed observances and events. Great Rescues also includes a mini cat-care book illustrated with my drawings including information on finding strays or orphaned kittens, adopting for the first time or caring for a geriatric cat, a list of household toxins and toxic plants, or helping stray and feral cats and beginning with TNR.

Each book includes also 10 sheets of my “22 Cats” decorative notepaper with a collage of all the portraits in black and white so you can make your own notes or write special notes to friends.

The portraits in this book, collected as a series, won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest, as well as the 22 Cats Notepaper.
