Can somebody tell me why Phoenix is in the bad cities list for cats?
My cat is NYC cat and loves every minute of it.
Number of "cat cafes" seems like an odd criteria. I always feel bad for those cats…
Raleigh, North Carolina has great vets that specialize in kitties!
I’ve been going to the same cat-specific veterinarian for over a decade. There is also a wonderful feline veterinary teaching hospital in the area.
Correction! My bad! Obviously West Virginia isn’t a city. All the towns and cities seem very cat friendly to me in this state.
Correction!!! My bad!!!! Obviously West Virginia isn’t a city, but every place I’ve been to in this state is cat friendly!
West Virginia should be on the list for Cat Friendly cities. I recently moved to this beautiful state and can’t believe how much people love their feline friends!!!!!
