New Podcast for CAT LOVERS!

Hey Alcohol Cat readers!

There is an exciting new project I’m so happy to be sharing with you… I have recently teamed up with my friend Marci Koski – owner of Feline Behavior Solutions, a cat behavior consultation business. We got together to talk about our favorite topic (CATS) and recorded it all just for you!

Our new podcast, CAT CHAT WITH LIZ AND MARCI, brings you insight into the feline psyche with stories, humor, and loads of hands-on experience. In the first episode, we cover multi-cat households: how to pick a new cat for your growing clowder, how to introduce a new cat, and how to prevent/resolve any issues that might arise!

Goodness knows, I didn’t even consider how many cats are in shelters. Small animals never even crossed my mind. Part of it was that I didn’t have any animals growing up that didn’t live in tanks, and those came from a local pet shop or from our garden. One friend had a dog that was a “buy at the side of the road” type of puppy from someone whose dog had had a litter. Another neighbor ended up adopting a dog that was super shy—at the very least “quirky.” Not exactly a great shelter example. Only one of my parents’ friends had “normal” rescue dogs (and it turns out, were fostered for GDRNE), and that seemed to be because he was an excellent dog trainer.
