Working for my cats.

My cats are family. When they need medical care, I provide it to give them the best lives possible. In addition to medicine, vet visits, toys, beds, scratching posts, places to climb and run (and plenty of love and snuggles!), I supply appropriate food that addresses medical issues. As pet-lovers know, all this is extremely expensive, especially when emergencies or serious medical issues arise.

I’m a great writer. You’ll enjoy my words. Check them out and help support a great life for these happy cats.
