Greetings, all friends of animals!
I trained as a clinical psychologist, but above all I’m a great lover of animals, especially cats. At present I’m not in work, so I can dedicate all my time to animals, especially those who need care.
Ever since my childhood I’ve been particularly sensitive to these wonderful furry creatures.
I share my life with my 9 cats, one of whom needs a welcoming family (Dép is looking for the right family), my 2 dogs and 2 fish. For nearly 4 years I’ve volunteered at an animal protection association, and I also take care of around 30 stray cats in my quarter in Nantes.
All my cats are spayed/neutered and tagged, as being aware of the larger problem of animal suffering, I’m against cats freely proliferating.
All my experience with cats I owe to my dear kitties, and to the ones I care for outside. They inspire me to learn for them, to inform myself so that I can take care of them as best as possible. I often take on very ill cats who need lots of treatment, and I do my best to heal them and make them comfortable.
Being very close to nature I am a big fan of naturopathy, an alternative medicine. Depending on the individual cat, I look for natural plant remedies and natural food supplements, and I agree with this quote : “Nature is the best physician, she heals three quarters of all diseases” Galen.
I created this website to share my experience with people who, like me, are looking for natural remedies for their cats. I’ve always been against needless suffering- and in certain cases the conventional medicine given by your vet is indispensable for quickly healing your cat. Anyway, nothing prevents you from following this up with natural products.
However, it’s important to know that I’m not a vet. All the advice that I give on this blog is given whole heartedly, and has been tested on my own cats. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that each cat is different, and reacts differently to administered treatments.
For example, products to heal gingivitis have been tested on one of my cats who is FIV+ and who, due to this, is a lot more delicate than those who are not. An FIV+ cat is more complicated to treat, as his immunitary defences are decreased.
I also share with you in this blog the stories of rescued street cats, who are often in a pitiable state.
These cats need vetinary care, which is often very costly, and which the association I work for can’t always cover. I’ve been obliged to ask for donations to help heal these poorly cats. The association houses lots of cats, and unfortunately it can’t afford to take in all the ones who need help. So most of the time I’m obliged to pay for the cats that I take into foster care. I myself buy all the food supplements (naturopathy), which means I end up spending a lot more than I can afford to.
The word “euthanasia” is not acceptable to me, as long as the cat is holding onto life. I will not give up before he does! I decided to create this blog to share my experiences and good advice with cat lovers, asking in exchange for help with certain cats who need lots of care, foster families or to be adopted.
You can also, if you wish, write an article for this website, about a disease, cat behaviour or well-being, so that other cat lovers can profit from the good advice.
It is important to know that I am not a veterinarian and that this site has no intention of replacing your pet’s veterinarian. All the advice I give on this blog is given in good faith and has been tested on my cats. However, we must not forget that every cat is different and reacts differently to the administration of treatments, and therefore any change in treatment should be consulted with the vet responsible for your pet.
