Your Cat February 2016
Here are just some of the exciting features inside...
Welcome to the February issue of Your Cat magazine — and a very happy new year to you all! Here's to a fabulous 2016 with readers around the globe — and all of your gorgeous cats of course!
As with many things in life, communication is key when it comes to cat ownership — and many owners can often accidentally misinterpret their cat's body language, as top behaviourist Lauren Finka explains in this issue. If your cat has ever enjoyed a good stroke before lashing out and biting your hand, you'll definitely want to pick up this issue, where Lauren reveals the secrets of feline communication and explains how we can 'be more cat'!
If you're thinking of getting a new cat or kitten this year, please do take a moment to read our advice about buying online this month. Sadly, despite many charity-led campaigns and petitions shouting about the cause throughout 2015, 'backyard breeders' and irresponsible sellers are still out there, selling often sickly kittens and puppies to unsuspecting buyers. With so many cats and kittens patiently awaiting homes in rescue centres around the country, why not pay one of them a visit? You never know who you might fall in love with!
One charity that really is making a difference to the animals in its care is HSAM (Help the Street Animals of Morocco) — co-founded by UK vet nurse Claire Sedgwick, HSAM came to the aid of an incredible 33,745 cats to date, treating many of them on-the-spot in a pioneering new approach to street animal care. Pick up a copy of our February issue to read our interview with Claire, and prepare to be wowed by the dedication of the HSAM team!
If you enjoyed last month's crochet kitty cat hat pattern, you'll love the knitted paw print glove pattern in this issue – and don't forget to share your crafty creations on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
Finally, don't miss this month's competition to win one of five fantastic prize bundles from Tigga Towers, plus over £1,000 worth of prizes up for grabs in our monthly Freebies giveaway!
Until next time, happy reading!
