About the Joy of Cats

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

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! 

The blog will mostly be focusing on indoor cats, since my cats are currently indoor only.

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