Feline so Fine
“What greater gift than the love of a cat.” ― Charles Dickens
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!
