Paws and Effect is a weekly advice column written by Siouxsie Mew, Thomas T. Bombadil and Dahlia P. Kittenface — with some help from their mama, "cat whisperer," webmaster, and chief cat slave JaneA Kelley. We answer letters from readers about questions related to cat health, cat behavior, relationships between cats and humans or cats and other animal–basically, if it’s about cats, we’ll answer it. We’re not veterinarians, nor do we claim to be. But we all cherish the relationship cats have with their people and we want to help make that relationship a good one for all parties. Your purchases help us pay hosting costs and other assorted expenses--and 20% of all profits go to our local SPCA!
