Fe­line so Fine

“What greater gift than the love of a cat.” ― Charles Dick­ens

Clubpets - - PUBLISHER’S NOTE - ANGIE

Greet­ings all pawrents!

We’re very ex­cited about our new­est issue — a Fe­line so Fine special! It’s been a long time com­ing, but we’re look­ing into the bonds shared be­tween cat par­ents and their furry pet chil­dren. Also show­ing how cats and dogs can be just as friendly to one an­other as they are to species of their own kind, even our clubpets am­bas­sador, Coco, hangs out with some fe­line friends in this edi­tion’s fashion spread (pg 54).

The af­fec­tion and love cats give their pet par­ents couldn’t be more ap­par­ent when we spoke to our cover star, Peifen, about her three adopted kit­ties Snug­gie, Mono and Night (pg 46); hav­ing built a cus­tom cat high­way for her pets in her home, we look into the ef­forts Peifen has made to en­sure her cats are well-en­ter­tained each day. Also shar­ing how her beloved fe­lines brought her and her now hus­band closer to­gether, and the process of ac­cli­ma­tis­ing her cats to the pres­ence of her young son, Luke, we get a look into the ways in which hav­ing furry family com­pan­ions can enhance day-to-day life.

Though we may not all be able to give our fe­lines their very own ob­sta­cle course in our homes, this doesn’t mean we can’t do our best to make our kit­ties feel loved! This issue’s DIY helps you do just that, en­abling you to cre­ate a palace for your cat with noth­ing but card­board (pg 12).

Alas, those for­tu­nate enough to call them­selves a pet par­ent can at­test to the im­mense joy hav­ing a fur kid can bring, but with them be­ing so in­de­pen­dent, the feel­ing can be even more pro­nounced when your pet pal is a cat. For those who are still un­con­vinced, just visit one of Sin­ga­pore’s cat cafés to fully ex­pe­ri­ence the af­fec­tion cats can give (pg 92)! Some­times, though, a fe­line’s aloof be­hav­iour may be due to some­thing else, so we’ve looked into any signs you can look out for should your cat’s be­hav­iour be a sign of some­thing more se­ri­ous like de­pres­sion (pg 26).

De­spite our focus on fe­lines, though, we also touch on top­ics for fur par­ents of all sorts — from how you can bird-proof your home (pg 70) to pro­vid­ing the hottest ho­tel treat­ment for your pet when you’re away (pg 96), we can’t wait for you to see what we’ve got in store for you in this issue. Happy read­ing!

Love al­ways,

Angie Lim and Coco
