Little Big Cat was born out of our deep desire to keep cats in their homes instead of joining the 6 million cats who die in shelters every year, or becoming one of the 60 million abandoned, stray and feral cats living on the streets.
It happens all the time — people reach the end of their rope with an unwanted cat behavior. Suddenly, it seems that there is nothing left but to get rid of the cat. People do not know there is help available, so they do not seek it. They “live with it,” and let the problem go on, until their relationship with their cat is damaged beyond repair.
We’ve both worked in shelters, and we’ve both euthanized healthy cats whose only crime was developing a bad habit. Relinquishing a cat is hard enough for the family, but for us to have to kill that cat is much worse. Little Big Cat was created to offer an alternative — a way through and out of problems.
Since we started, our conviction that the work we’re doing is needed has only deepened, and our commitment and enthusiasm continue to grow. If you feel the same way, please consider making a donation to help support our work.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website, that you learn something new about cat behavior or health today, and that you ever more deeply share our love and admiration for cats. Please visit us often – we’re constantly adding and revising and updating! This is a learning process for everyone, and as we learn more, we want to share it with you.
Thanks for coming! Now, go hug your cat!
