Don't miss the October issue of Your Cat magazine — on sale now!

We're thinking about inter-species relations this month, so if you're a cat owner thinking of buying a puppy or adopting a rescue dog, we've got lots of helpful information for you.

Despite their reputation for being mortal enemies, cats and dogs can in fact become great friends; the secret is in the introduction and in training both pets to be comfortable in each other's company. In this issue, top feline behaviourist (and dog and cat owner) Kim Houston shares her tried-and-tested method to ensure your cat and dog become the very best of friends.

Two cats that aren't so keen on dogs (so we hear!) are Craig and Committee of Gunby Hall in Spilsby, Lincolnshire. This characterful duo are very much in charge of the National Trust property and have graced staff and visitors with their presence for 10 years — and we couldn't resist a meet and greet. Read all about this purrfect pair — and find out how they earn their keep — in this issue.

Cats like Craig and Committee are now so used to living the outdoor life, they may well struggle to adapt to a life indoors. In recognition of cats that prefer a more 'hands-off' approach, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is focusing its efforts on rehoming some of its more feral residents to stables, farms and smallholdings. Read all about the charity's latest initiative, and find out if you could offer a feral kitty a much-needed home, in the October issue.

Finally, we were absolutely delighted to attend Cats Protection's prestigious National Cat Awards in August, which celebrate extraordinary tales of survival, companionship and bravery. Don't miss our awards coverage in the next issue, where we meet the incredibly worthy winners — tissues at the ready!
