About Cat-World



Cat-World was established in 2002 and has grown into one of the largest cat websites in the world. With over 900 articles on all aspects of cat health, cat care, and general cat information as well as a large online community with over 20,000 members and a Facebook page with over 2,000 followers.

I have been providing information and writing educational articles about cats since 1997 when I first started out as a contributor for the now-defunct Acme Cat Chat as well as a moderator on Cats of Australia.

I currently live in New South Wales with my husband and two children. We share our home with four cats and two dogs.

When I am not writing about cats, I enjoy running and photography.

My cats are a regular feature on the site as unpaid models.

Calvin and Norman are two bonded Tonkinese cats who we adopted from the RSPCA in 2017.  Monty is a chocolate Oriental and Melody is a calico Domestic Shorthair who we fostered in 2013 and has never left.

Mission statement:

Cat-World aims to provide safe, accurate,  trustworthy and up-to-date information on all aspects of cat care.


Safety and accuracy are vital when reading information online, especially when it comes to the health and welfare of our pets. In 2019, the team at Southern Cross Veterinary Clinic are coming on board to proofread and fact check articles to ensure they are safe, accurate and up-to-date. Any article which has been checked by Southern Cross Veterinary Clinic will say so at the end.

The information provided on Cat-World is designed to support, not replace the relationship that exists between a cat/cat carer and the cat’s own veterinarian.

Any advice offered on Cat-World is from a non-medically qualified point of view. However, my number one priority is to provide accurate and up-to-date information. This involves careful and thorough research from respected professional and authority sources (universities, specialist veterinarians, medical journals and veterinary books). I will always cite those sources so that you can check the validity of the information presented on this site. The articles on Cat-World are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure the information is fresh, up-to-date and accurate.
