About Us

about cat-worldCat-World was established in 2002 and has grown into one of the largest cat websites in the world. It has hundreds of articles on all aspects of cat health, cat care, and cat products as well as a large online community with over 20,000 members and a Facebook page with over 1,000 members.

I have been a cat lover since I was a small child. I currently live in Sydney with my husband and two children. We share our home with two cats, Levi and Monty, plus our chocolate Labrador, Dizzy.


Running a large online community requires an enormous abount of work and a special mention goes to my moderators and co-administrators who help keep the forums running.

Our current team includes:

Heather, Joy, Chocolate Dots, tabykitten, IMOM, HarlyD, Satchmo, maigrey, Pixiekatz and Inca. 

I must also include past moderators. Without each and every one of you, the forums couldn't have been maintained.

If you have any feedback or suggestions, please contact me.
