Welcome to our Blog,

We are a group of friends that are united by our passion for (you guessed it right!) CATS!

Because we loved reading about cats on the internet we were really keen on putting together a portal not just for our own cats but also as a one stop source on all things cats for our friends and fellow cat lovers.

Our Bloggers & Cats:

Marc-Andre: He lives in London where he is owned by the mischievous cats Oliver, Nubia & Renegade (aka Oli, Pooh & Rennie).

Marc keeps the rest of the team organised and heading into one direction.  When he is not working on the Blog Oliver will curl up next to him… Well sometimes he will curl up on the laptop anyway!

Oh and if you are looking for a photographer he is your man! ;D

His Meowjesty King Oliver may look peaceful on this photo but he is also known as the Maker of Mischief!

Iain: He is the other human owned by the mischievous trio OliverNubia & Renegade!

Her Meowjesty Queen Nubia (aka Nubzilla) the Disturber of Peace is known for her noisy roars and stomping as she hobbles through the living room! She may only have three legs but she has the heart of a lion and will not waiver to get what she wants!

Iain does a lot of the editing of our Guest Posts  He is the main person in charge of techy product reviews! He loves vacuum cleaners!!

Native Oregonian Mollie Hunt has always had an affinity for cats, so it was a short step for her to become a cat writer. Mollie is the author of the Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, including Cats’ EyesCopy CatsCat’s Paw, and Cat Call (coming in October 2017). The series features Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in a catnip patch. Mollie is a member of the Oregon Writers’ Colony, Sisters in Crime, and the Cat Writers’ Association. This year she won a CWA Muse Medallion for her 3-part blogpost series, Life Stages. Mollie lives in Portland’s eclectic Hawthorne district with her husband and a varying number of cats. Like her character, Lynley Cannon, she is a grateful shelter volunteer.

  5. Joanne says:

    Thank you so much for following my blog thus leading me to yours – am so looking forward to reading more of yours on one of my favorite topics – CATS! 🙂

  6. raroto says:

    I wish i could show off my cat, Petro, but he died 4 years ago. I still miss him. He has a special place in my heart, and there can be no other to replace him. You see, Petro chose me as his companion and we had had a tight bond from the very beginning. I never could bring myself to replace him, and in fact never did find a ‘soul mate’ in all other cats after Petro. Strange, I know, but true.
    Ah what am I doing?! I’m rambling like an old granny here when I’m supposed to thank you for the follow, Marc-André! Glad you found me coz now I can have my share of more cat photos! I am definitely following you 🙂

    • Marc-André says:

      Thank you so much for following us. And sorry to hear about Petro :(. Not sure what i would do if something was to happen to oli. He chose me the second we met in the charity by putting his paw on me and purring away.

  7. LillianC says:

    Hi there! What a wonderful blog! I have 3 cats, a black longhair, a torby, and a gray and white short hair. Thank you for visiting my blog. So glad that led me here!

  8. Author Catherine Townsend-Lyon says:

    A Big Sunny Hello from Arizona, USA!
    I’m just LOVING all your Pic’s of cats. Yes, my hubby and I have 4 cats. Two are with my best friend on her ranch in So. Oregon, as we had to move to Arizona for a year so my husband can go through meat-cutters school/training. Mr. Buttons & Ms. Calie….

    Now, we just adopted 2 four month old kittens from a rescue shelter, and they will go back to Oregon with us. They are a HOOT! This is the 1st time we have had 2 kittens at once. Mr. Boots & Ms. Prissy Princess. She has an attitude, so I had to add Prissy to her name!….LOL.
    Cats just bring so much joy to a home don’t they!

    Thanks for coming by my blog. I do often do a *Happy Caturday* blog post on the weekends, They sure get a lot of visits when I do. Glad I came by!! I’m a New Fan…

    Author, Catherine Lyon 🙂 🙂

  9. Teagan says:

    Thank you for following my blog. I see you don’t have a tortie? Would you like mine? She’s mostly a complete pain, poking her little nose into everything and leaving lots of bits of mouse body parts everywhere. My humans had never had a tortie – mum always had black cats and then inherited 3 persians, which weren’t like proper cats at all… then they got me and then they rescued Pickle, or perhaps more correctly, rescued Pickle’s 80 year old owner who couldn’t cope with her. Nobody told us about torties… they should come with a health warning.

    • Marc-André says:

      LOL! Yeah naughty tortie’s can be a pain xD. My friend has one and she may look cute and innocent but well you know the rest of the story xD. I’d love another cat but I think Mr Oli and Ms Nubes may get jealous ;). Happy to feature your kitties as our guest stars on the blog btw 🙂

  10. bluebunny01 says:

    How wonderful – I look forward to reading the blog! We have no self control when it comes to cats – we have 7 – mainly rescues – all unique characters.

  11. annabellefranklinauthor says:

    Thank you for visiting me, Millie and Pearl – I love it when cat people follow our dog blog. I am trying to convince Millie and Pearl that all animals are equal – and equally lovable – but sometimes it’s an uphill struggle!

  12. A.PROMPTreply says:

    Wow. A whole blog about cats! Now that’s an awesome approach! Popped over to thank you for the follow on my own blog and got caught up perusing all these lovely pix and stories (love how they’re told from the perspective of the cats!) Excellent! You’ve got another fan in me!

  13. newsferret says:

    Hi Marc, sorry to bug you but I am dog and cat and animal crazy. On Facebook I daily a publish pic of our dogs and the masters of the house – yes, the cats – Facebook link is Hermann Hanekom

    • Marc-André says:

      I shall check out your Facebook page and follow it :). We have a fairly large page on Facebook so can always do a share 4 share ^^. And feel free to send us stories of your kitties for reblogging

  14. kleclair says:

    Such a cute blog! I’ll be following to get updates of your adorable kitties. 🙂 The calico you posted last reminds me of my own cat! Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my paintings!

    • Marc-André says:

      Thank you very much for coming over to our blog and glad you like it :). If you got any cat related news you would like us to reblog drop me a message hehe. 😀

  15. neuroticocomic says:

    What a great looking blog you have here! I can’t wait to check it out in more detail. Miss Dixie is a wild looking cat with that black patch on the left side of her face. 🙂 Thank you for following my blog!

        • Marc-André says:

          Haha that’s ok :). We don’t hate dogs in fact we have a guest star “puppy” (if you can say so for Labradors lol) in our guest category hehe. If your friend has any photos or stories to share feel free to send them in to us 😀

  16. silverliningsanddustbunnies says:

    Thanks for dropping by my little Montana blog. I LOVE your blog, and have reciprocated the follow. Beautiful pictures and awesome captions!

  17. wisemonkeysabroad says:

    Thanks so much for swinging by our blog 🙂 We have ducked back to check out your blog and wonder whether cats and monkeys can be friends 🙂 Of course they can!! Pleased to meet you.

    • Marc-André says:

      Thank you :). And yeah I think I still have a cute holiday shot somewhere of a monkey checking for fleas and ticks for a cat in Japan :o. I’ll send it over if I can find it ^^

  18. mynuttydubai says:

    Hi there! Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog! I hope you enjoy some of the cat posts I do 🙂
    Love the idea of your blog… definitely going to spend some time having a look around!

  19. Emy Will says:

    Hi Marc-Andre.
    Thank you for following my blog FUR OUT THE CLOSET. You must love all animals?
    This led me to your wonderful world of cats. I look forward to the light relief of reading your future posts.
    Paws,
    Emy <3

  20. sakuraandme says:

    HI, thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I adore cats and especially my own. Lol Her name is Sakura, but she answers to Princess. Hahaha
    She’s like a child to me. I love that you all love cats so much. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
    Hugs Paula xx

  21. LillianC says:

    When my weary spirit needs refreshment, I can come here and enjoy all the photos and stories of so many wonderful cats. I see you’ve been visiting my blog again. Thank you so much!

  22. Tracesofthesoul says:

    What a lovely blog…so many beautiful felines!! Thank you so much for following my blog, I am truly honoured. And my BFF (best feline friend), Bette is most appreciative as well, Oliana

  23. Spira says:

    Thanks for stopping by the Fury friends post and following the blog. Actually one of the two ladies of Madame Butterfly is an animal activist, so she will be glad to hear about you.
    To tell you the truth, I am setting up their blog at WordPress as a surprise for them; hence the 28 hours straight to make it before they return from their weekend trip!!!
    Thanks again and wishing all the best to you & your cats.

  24. unexpectedincommonhours says:

    Thank you for the follow. I love your post about the rescued Manx. All of the cats we’ve had for the past 25 years have been rescue cats. Our only cat now is 18 years old and was a rescue kitten when we got him. He refuses to go outside and has only been out twice in 18 years. The outside cat you saw in my post is our neighbor’s cat who stays at our house quite a bit.

    • Marc-André says:

      Awwww. All of our own cats are rescue cats as well. :). And it’s good to see I’m not the only one who has a rescue cat that hates the outside world. In fact Olive rid terrified by the big world beyond the door haha

  25. Iris says:

    This blog is the cutest one I have ever stumbled upon. I was having a bad day today, but your pictures definitely helped turn that around. Thanks for that. =)

  26. Cha Annie says:

    One thing my dash was definitely lacking… CATS!
    Thanks so much for the follow, loved checking this out and looking forward to seeing more in the future!
    Keep up the great work and stay wonderful xx <3

  27. TheLastWord says:

    Oh dear, you are following the blog SloWord and we are confirmed non-catty people! I wonder if that’s why you are following it.

    Thanks for the follow 🙂

  28. Hemingway and Shakespeare says:

    Thanks so much for finding our blog and liking us. We really appreciate it. We love meeting fur people and their humans from all over the world. We showed Mom your blog and she loved the article on Dodger. Thanks for loving us fur people!!! 🙂

  29. aquicksmile says:

    There you are! I realised I wasn’t getting posts from you and it seems I had lost you 🙁 but found you again and looking forward to enjoying your posts. Hurrah.

  30. writeonthebeach says:

    Hi there and thanks for visiting and following my blog. Hope you don’t think I dislike cats…I don’t. I just can’t cope with seven or eight feral ones. Loved some of your posts …made me yowl 🙂

    • Marc-André says:

      Haha. I think my love of cats may be slightly stretched with 7 of them as well ;). These two already demand sufficient amount of attention :). Thanks for checking out my blog too ^^

  31. lifehelps says:

    Hello, Mark,
    Thank you for liking “Baby Buddy” on lifehelps. Given that it’s another cat story, sad to say, another one about one who was dumped, you might like “Priscilla’s Story” on lifehelps as well. She is my cat.
    I enjoyed reading the story about the overweight cat on your home page: Cute! Nothing like a baby brother to get the big boy in shape!
    Hannah

  32. Elouise says:

    This could be addictive! The pictures and comments about them are all so heartwarming. Thanks for the like today–and for leaving your little pawprint so I could find you!
    Elouise, for Smudge

  33. Tina Blackledge says:

    It is nice to see and read about a lighthearted subject. I love animals and feel they are the best medicine for our weary souls. I am more of a dog person but I love all animals and will enjoy your site. Thank you for visit to Peaks and Valleys.

  34. Veronica Haidar says:

    Just to say thank you for checking out my blog and for the follow. We’re a very feline-friendly household. Smudge and Scamp send whisker twitches and tail waves to Nubia, Oliver, Mao and Snowball – or at least they would if they weren’t out in the back field defending hearth and home from the local mice and Other Cats.

  35. Uncle Spike says:

    Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    UNCLE SPIKE

  36. argentodtw says:

    thank you for following me and for liking my post.
    yet, sadly, as you might have noticed, the bed in the header of my post is empty.

    I am a 32 year old man and my 20 year old brother Mikki, whom I received at age 12 after “fighting” with my family to keep him after I managed to rescue him,
    was given the gift of mercy due to his terminal kidney illness….damn it’s in the last four months but I am not even able to tell when this happened anymore. :'(
    A piece of me went away and will never come back -imagine: I GREW UP with Mikki for most of my life; every single happy moment had to do with him-.

    I would so much love to read your blog and follow advices to take care of him, but he is not here anymore.
    Maybe to read about cats will help me cope with my loss that I, still, even if I am a big 1.92 meters tall man, cry out several nights a week.

  37. 'ter says:

    Aha, it’s the sCat man again – so you liked 0032 – I thought I might be “seeing” you again although to be honest I thought I might be “seeing” you chasing me round the garden with a bit of 2 x 4 – I wasn’t sure how you’d take my smoooth pussy!!

    However, I am very pleased to note that you have a sense of humour and are purr’cipient enough to know that it was all purr’fectly harmless and that you won’t be forcing me to wear purr’dah or purr’chasing a purr’gative from a purr’veyor of such items and purr’suing me in the purr’lieus where I purr’ambulate in order to force me to swallow said purr’gative in order to purr’ge my purr’fidy and thus damn me to purr’dition – or purr’haps you will allow me to ‘paws’ a moment and put it another way:

    Thanks for the like – Cheers – ‘ter !!

  38. Lynn Patra says:

    Hi Marc-André! Thank you for following my blog. I enjoy what I see so far on your blog and look forward to more amusing and informative posts about cats. Such fascinating creatures! 🙂

  39. raveburbleblog says:

    Thanks for dropping by raveburbleblog. Having recently become a servant to a Maine Coon, I’ve been rather taken aback by what a following this particular breed has. And as I’ve gotten to know my little tree-bear, tunnel-monster (another post that is on its way shortly), I sort of feel like I’m living with a feline furry bear and can see why people are so mesmerized by them. I’ve really done it now! Truly, I am smitten and in for all sorts of trouble. What have I done??!!

  40. syl65 says:

    Hello Marc and the gang, I nominated you all for The Inspiring Blogger Award. You don’t have to do anything, just letting you know that you are appreciated 🙂

  41. coffeegrounded says:

    Thank you for your visit. You know, with Christmas right around the corner, could you find it in your heart to gift me that beautiful Tuxedo? I can gift you a few Texas squirrels, opossum and some fishing worms. I know my gift falls short, but have pity upon me. Tuxedo’s are extra special to our family. 😉

  42. Harold Knight says:

    Thank you for seeing my posting about my dear Groucho – and for following my blog. I will be delighted to follow your blog – knowing there are cat lovers who will be interested in my two rmaining cats, Chachi and Joanie.

  43. crumpledpapercranes says:

    I am very happy to have come across this blog. I adore cats, although my living situation currently prevents me from finally getting one. In the meantime, I think your blog will do well in bringing cheer and knowledge through your pictures and posts. Thank you for putting this project together!

    (And thank you for checking out my blog. The 500 Cats Project is a great motivator for me.)

  44. c_in_b says:

    Thanks for the like of Feeling Safe. I enjoyed reading some of the cat stories on katzenworld. One of the few regrets on traveling is having to leave our cat Marissa behind. Now that we stay in the Cihangir neighborhood of Istanbul, there are many cats around. My daughter’s first facebook posting on arrival was a photo album of 29 pics of cats in the neighborhood. Cheers.

  45. New Earth Paradigm says:

    Hello Katzenworld — thanks for the follow and all the likes. Love the kitties. When my husband and I moved to Morocco in April, we had to find a new home for our precious Merlina. We placed her well and yet it is so hard to leave them once you are that attached. We now live in a place that has lots of cats — both cared for and strays. Animals are treated very differently here and not so many are pets. I admire them all from a distance but I haven’t let my heart engage with them — too much. Wonderful to see all the happy kitties on your site. Blessings, Alia

    • Marc-André says:

      Thank you so much for popping over to our Blog too. :). And yes i know what you mean. I am not sure if I could move somewhere where I wouldnt be able to take my little babies!

  46. batgurrl says:

    Luv our Maine coon kitties Reggie and GiGi so this is right up our alley. Of course I am a crow lover too – much to the distress of Reggie. Thanx for stopping by my humble blog on crows and the occasional kitty thing. Robin

    • Marc-André says:

      You are very welcom 🙂 and thanks for checking out ours too ^^. If you fancy doing a guest story about your kitties on my blog you are welcome to do so btw! 🙂

  47. Imivai says:

    Hi there,
    Why is your page called Katzenworld? Sounds like a German-English mash up. Did you just like the sound or do you have any relations to Germany?

    • Marc-André says:

      Haha thats a good question! I’m originally from Germany and wanted something that sounded German but yet similar enough for the english speaking world to understand it. 🙂

  48. ghostmmnc says:

    Hi, just dropping by to say thank you for following my blog! It is very much appreciated! I’m following back, because, well…cats!! (we have 4) Can’t wait to read more…and that picture of the giant kitty…Yes!!! 🙂

  49. pix & kardz says:

    hello there Marc-André. looks like a purr-fect kind of a blog! thanks for following pix & kardz. how cool is that.
     
    Timmy, our resident and handsome 8-year old feline, has been with us for almost 2 years and he writes a guest post on my blog on the first Tuesday of every month. if you would like a rewrite of any of those posts as a contribution to your blog, he would be delighted to do that 🙂
     
    for your reference, i have included the url for his first guest post from January 2013.

    • Marc-André says:

      Thank you! 🙂 So glad you like our blog.

      The link doesn’t seem to show if you could re-post it? But of course we would be very happy to include a guest feature! 😀

      • pix & kardz says:

        am actually not all that tech-savvy, so i just assumed that it could be reposted. if you prefer, it could be re-sent as a guest post, if you like. it would be a thrill to have him put in a guest appearance here. feel free to send me an email or else you can just use the feedback/comments link on my blog 🙂
         
        thanks and keep up the great job! 🙂

  50. Kendra S says:

    Hey! Thanks for the blog follow. I’ve had cats for most of my life, though I’m currently catless. So I look forward to poking around here!

  51. JUNO's VIEW says:

    Thanks for liking and following my Strengths Revolution blog hosting my podcast show. It is very different from my Juno’s View blog but I hope you find material of interest when you drift by it. It felt like another good personal space to reflect on the recent death of Juno and what she had given to me in her all too short life.

    • Marc-André says:

      Don’t worry these cats are dog friendly 🙂 in fact in some of our tummy rub tuesday’s like today and last week you will find friendly blogroll visits of canine friends. 😀
