About the Joy of Cats

I am Heidi. Along with my husband, Ted, we have eight indoor cats. Five of the eight were rescued from our backyard. I've written up each of their stories here

I learned how to do TNR during the summer of 2017. We have between 2 and 6 cats coming to our yard every day for food.

Over time my joy of cats as increased and I was encouraged by many friends to start a cat blog, so here it is!

I love talking about cats and cat stuff and hope to inspire you to give your cats the best life possible! 

In October 2016, I wore a different cat shirt each day. That was fun and I learned that shirts can start conversations.
