I have a Himalayan cat and I love her so much. In fact,there are days when I’d actually choose her over anyone. When circumstances seem too much, I isolate myself from human interaction.

It's a fun and enjoyable tool for your cats.

My cat and I spend a lot of time together. Lately, we have started doing something that has become one of our favourite bonding activities. We’ve started exercising at home. I’d be on my treadmill and she, on her cat exercise wheel.

It was a gift from a friend who loves to do things with his hands. As a true-blue DIY-er, he told me he saw the project and immediately thought of my cat. It’s one of his biggest projects but I must say that it has turned out great. My cat loved it!
