Issue Summary

As modern living advances, even traditional things can undergo change, particularly after such upheaval. This got me thinking, what will happen to the role of cats in our lives as we move into the future? In the next 10 or 20 years, will cats become more or less popular? That’s the subject of this month’s lead feature. Alison Gallagher-Hughes investigates the evidence and it’s a fascinating read.

What's in this Issue?

Modern life seems to change at a frightening pace. Even though the pandemic brought life grinding to a halt, the lockdowns have altered many people’s views on how the world works. As we hopefully overcome the virus, I expect more things to shift in the population’s thinking. For example, will working from home become much more commonplace? Will more everyday processes go digital?

As modern living advances, even traditional things can undergo change, particularly after such upheaval. This got me thinking, what will happen to the role of cats in our lives as we move into the future? In the next 10 or 20 years, will cats become more or less popular? That’s the subject of this month’s lead feature. Alison Gallagher-Hughes investigates the evidence and it’s a fascinating read. I won’t spoil the verdict for you, but it’s incredible when you consider the bigger picture and all the factors that play a part in determining whether people welcome felines into their families.

Elsewhere in the mag, when we were putting this issue together, there were two features that really struck a chord with me. One was the feature on page 46, where Karen Bush tells of her experience of putting up cat fencing (a real handy guide from someone who has actually done it!) and the other was the feature on page 26 about Louise Hastie, a former soldier who has dedicated herself to helping pets in war-torn countries. While it may seem strange comparing a back garden to war zones, it is a reminder that at the heart of each story are cats. These cats have names, personalities, and their own unique experiences. They are loved and that’s what drives people to do things for their feline companions, from putting up fencing to rescuing them from the line of fire. Each individual feline is different but they all mean so much to us — whatever the story, there’s always a cat at the heart of it.

On a different note, it was great that my message from last month was well-received and readers sent me more of their stories to share in Cat Chat — thank you!
