Hi everyone, and thank you for your readership! I’m sorry to say, you won’t read a masterpiece here. I’m extraordinarily boring. Since retiring from my position my life revolves around my 3 children, grandson, 6 cats, and 3 dogs. Sadly, after 8 years of employment, I had to step down due to a short-term medical situation. As one chapter of my life has closed, I’ve decided to open a new one by creating this site so I can continue to offer helpful insight to all the cat lovers everywhere.

My main focus for the blog is indoor cats, their wellness, training, and letting you know of the great products to help achieve this goal.

I look forward to helping you and your cats and getting to know all of you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or comments, I will get back to you as soon as I  can.


A balanced cat is a happy cat. A happy cat = A happy owner 🙂

All the best,

Gina Mikelson
