What's in this Issue?

You may have already noticed from the cover that this issue it’s all about Christmas! This time of year can be extremely joyous — for me, it’s about spending extra time with the two- and four-legged family and friends that we treasure the most.

But, if you’re still lingering between feeling festive and in pure Christmas denial, hopefully this issue will leave you feeling eager and prepared for what’s to come. And, most importantly, enable you to find ways for your cat to be involved in the festivities, as well as help you prevent any potential dramas. As we all know, this time of year can be wonderful and disruptive in equal measures, as all routine goes out of the window!

In this Christmas special, you’ll find everything from giving your home a festive makeover that will both look gorgeous and keep your kitty safe, to gift ideas for treating cats and their owners, some unique ways you can help your favourite charity over a notoriously tricky period for them, as well as festive feeding tips, advice for kitten’s first Christmas, and plenty more!

Steering away from the Christmassy theme, we also have a Q&A with the famous street cat Bob’s dad, James Bowen, as he tells us about his new book and plans for the future; we’ve got the second part in our ‘older cats’ series, helping you to keep your cat feeling his best throughout his golden years; and a fascinating ‘real life’ story this month about a man who has created incense for grieving pet owners to light to trigger happy, soothing memories of their beloved pets.

It was also great to meet lots of loyal Your Cat readers at the Supreme Cat Show in October — it was lovely to hear your feedback about the magazine, and amazing to learn that some of you have been with us since the start, almost 25 years ago! And a warm welcome to all of the new readers we welcomed to our community of cat lovers at the show — we hope you enjoy the mag dropping through your letter box every month.

One of the other highlights of the show for me was getting hands-on with some Maine Coons; I met a lovely, big boy called Lootah on the Maine Coon Cat Club stand — I am itching to welcome one of these big beauties into my life. Maybe 2019 will be the year!

On a final note, if you’re looking for a gift to treat a loved one to this Christmas, a subscription to Your Cat Magazine is ideal — it’s a gift that keeps on giving, month after month, offering a monthly fix of all things cat, and who doesn’t need more ‘cat’ in their life!? I’m not biased — honest!
