I am an animal lover and cat person – a seeker and gatherer of all things cat related from the smallest house cat to the largest wild cat. The happy servant to my beloved cat Spinner the Silver Tabby and owner of a pet services business specializing in cats, I enjoy volunteering with the cats of Toronto Animal Services and have had the privilege of spending time with felines both domestic and wild while traveling abroad.

Reading Born Free as a child would change my life, I was determined from a young age to visit Africa in search of lions and other big cats and, as an adult I was finally able to do so. One of my ultimate dreams consists seeing every species of big cat in the wild – it’s a big dream that I am still hoping to fulfill one day. A passionate and sometimes opinionated animal activist and advocate I believe that knowledge is power and every person can make a difference.

An advocate for all felines everywhere, I started Purr and Roar to talk about all things cat related, the personal stories, experiences, what others are saying or doing, info that I find fascinating, the fun tidbits, the educational, inspirational and the more serious stuff.

  1. Thank you sooo much for following my blog. It made me purrr to see your wonderful blog. I too am passionate about cats:)
    I totally agree with your statement, “knowledge is power and every person can make a difference”.
    Look forward to seeing more of your posts,
    Best wishes,

    • Hi! I counted Tsuki’s whiskers a few times, hanging around cats pays off! lol Yes my dream goal would be to see all of them although I realize it may not fully happen I have been fortunate to see some. Doesn’t mean I stop dreaming. Thanks for stopping by & the follow 🐱

  2. Hi! I just figured out why I have trouble finding your posts sometimes. Did you know you can only use 15 tags and categories. Any more and Word Press thinks you are spam and kicks you out of the reader. The rule of thumb is 3 categories and 12 tags. Hope it helps.
    Hey! We still going to CatCon next year? I’ll be coming up to Toronto in a couple of weeks. Maybe we can meet for a coffee? 🙂
    Opps, I’m in my horse blog. It’s Tom from Cats at the Bar. 🙂

    • Eeeks! Thanks for letting me know, I actually tried to update this but WP has been acting up lately. I will go through & make sure changes stick this time thanks for bringing that to my attention.
      CatCon should still be on it is now scheduled for June 25/26 I think Tickets go on sale early next year & it’s going to be bigger on 2 floors!

      LMK when you will be in TO my schedule opens up around that time which is the last week of Oct.

      • Sounds perfect. I’ll know my exact dates in a day or two for Toronto. I’ll let you know. 🙂

  3. Hi,
    I was wondering if Babyface has been adopted? I have been thinking of adopting him but see that he is no longer on the TAS website.

    • Hi Katrina! Yes Baby face was just adopted this past weekend at the Mega Adoptathon at the CNE grounds. I actually adopted him out & it was very near to the end of the day. Did you know about the event? It was last Friday & Saturday. Keep checking the shelters or Petsmart there are many older cats still looking for a home & cats that did not get adopted last weekend!
