Issue Summary

Sitting down to write this month’s editor’s letter is more than a little strange. Like many of us, I’m working from home to ensure social distancing as the world fights the coronavirus pandemic. I think for many of us — unless you lived during the Second World War — this current situation will be the most upheaval to everyday life that we’ll ever experience. It is a time full of worry and uncertainty.

What's in this Issue?

Sitting down to write this month’s editor’s letter is more than a little strange. Like many of us, I’m working from home to ensure social distancing as the world fights the coronavirus pandemic. I think for many of us — unless you lived during the Second World War — this current situation will be the most upheaval to everyday life that we’ll ever experience. It is a time full of worry and uncertainty.

Crisis often brings the best out in people too though, and we are seeing lots of examples of community spirit, and are truly thankful to those people who are fighting the disease on the frontline.

While there are obviously far more important things going on, Your Cat Magazine will still be here and coming out each month. The team are working from home and spending more time with our cats (there are some positives!). I hope the magazine provides enjoyment (hopefully as it does every month!) and is a welcome distraction during these testing times.

Don’t forget the website too — www.yourcat.co.uk — we’ve created an isolation kit on there with fun stuff and trusted advice to keep you busy while you’re staying safe at home.

In this issue, we’ve had to temporarily halt some series, such as the cat cafe tour and the careers with cats series, as it’s not the right time for visiting cafes or starting a new career, but there is still plenty to enjoy.

There are top tips for the isolation period with ‘How to get through isolation with your cat’ (page 22) and Dr Lauren Finka has advice on how to care for your cat during this time in her regular column (page 27).

My top picks for this month are the ‘No place like home feature’ (page 50) on cats who live in hotels — these cats are living a life of luxury! The new series on TTouch (page 24) is a look at how owners can use the bodywork method to relax our cats. Give it a go and you might find a whole new level of bonding with your feline companion. Finally, this month’s ‘Real Life’ feature (page 19) is about Arlo, a cat who goes on dog walks — the story and pictures are just stunning!

Until next month, stay safe and happy reading.

Michael Hallam, Editor.
