What We Do

We Love Cats and Kittens is on a mission to publish the best cat content, covering everything from news and cat stories through to helpful cat health and care advice to recommednations for cat food and all kinds of cat products.

We are here to answer your questions whether it’s why your cat always sleeps on your head or what food you need to help your kitty lose a few pounds.

Cat Care Advice

Our team of cat experts, vets, nutritionists and behaviorists write detailed research driven guides on cat health, cat care, cat behavior and cat breeds.

Reviews and Guides

We also scour the internet and reach out to our community to uncover the best cat food, cat products, and anything you might want or need to buy to help you look after your cat.

We write balanced guides to the best products you can buy for your cat. We want to help you make more informed decisions when it comes to buying the things you need for your cat. Our goal is to help you find the right cat food and the best cat products that you and your cat will love.

Our Review Process

The team research, purchase and test the cat products that we review so that we can give you unbiased reviews based on our hands-on testing. Of course, our cats are a critical part of our testing process, and we know when they like a product and when they don’t. If they don’t like it, it won’t go in our guides!

The recommendations in our guides are the result of the combined opinion and expertise of all the relevant members of our team. They are based on personal experience, industry knowledge, methodical research, our analysis of verified customer reviews across several websites and platforms and from the survey feedback we seek from our large engaged social following.

This means that our cat food and product guides only cover recommended products that have the unbiased vote of confidence from a wide range of cat owners and experts.
