Here are just some of the exciting features inside...

Welcome to the May issue of Your Cat magazine. For those of us who work full-time or have to leave our cats home alone for any number of reasons, it's always heart-wrenching to give them a final cuddle and say our goodbyes for the day. But what do our cats get up to once we've shut the front door? Do they miss us when we're away? And how can we make sure our cats are entertained throughout the day? Feline behaviourist Kim Houston has all the answers on page 20, with her essential 'working person's guide to cat ownership'. Packed full of tips and enrichment ideas for every cat — whether you're leaving your cats for work or just to nip to the shops, it's a must-read.

One item Kim suggests we all invest in is a multi-level activity centre for our cats — so don't miss our handy buyer's guide on page 64, where we showcase 12 pieces of cat furniture to turn your home into the purrfect kitty playground.

If you're starting to plan a summer holiday, take a look at our 'bucket list' on page 38 where we take a look at just a few of the locations where you can volunteer with big cats for a once-in-a-lifetime, unforgettable experience. If you've volunteered with cats – big or small, at home or abroad – let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you get a bit of down time this month, take a look at wildlife artist Vic Bearcroft's step-by-step guide to creating your own moggy masterpiece — pencils and pastels at the ready! And don't forget to share your creations on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages where you can chat directly with other readers and everyone on the Your Cat team!
