Susan Thixton is Cat Faeries’ good friend and sister in crusading for impeccable quality in all things for cats.
She has just released her “List” of 11 cat foods and 22 dog foods which she considers to be the safest and of the highest quality, and which are trusted enough to feed her own cats and dogs. Most of them have signed The Pledge that their foods will be free of Chinese ingredients and that they will uphold and maintain her high standards of quality and integrity. Believe us when we tell you that most cat and dog food companies won’t sign The Pledge!
To get your copy of the list you need to donate anywhere from $10 to $50. Why pay for it?
Susan Thixton is about the hardest working person we know. Her dedication and commitment to you and your cats is unwavering. Selling this annual list is her only source of income and her expenses are high. She travels to pet biz trade shows where she can corner and speak with the makers of cat and dog foods. She attends the annual AAFCO meetings which cost $1,500 entry fees and travel.
Susan spends hours making phone calls and sending faxes. She works 7 (seven!) days a week, often chained to her computer until 10 or 11pm every night. And she’s got her own animals to feed, and a home to maintain. If she didn’t charge for this list she would not be able to be an advocate for us. Mind you, she loves this work, but she needs income to be able to do it.
After a too long of a hiatus the 4 oz. bottles of our flower essences formulas for cats are back in stock! Why the long wait? Well, you know how finicky we are about quality! We had a very hard time finding American made bottles (we won’t use the ones from China or Taiwan). At last! We found them! Thank you for patiently waiting!
We’ve been working hard to put together a delightful assortment of Spring and Easter cat toys – the Bunny Rabbit Catnip Cat Toy gift set! We become giddy with happiness this time of year when the wild flowers begin to bloom and the days get longer. We feel all warm and springy inside and we feel great appreciation towards you and your cats. We want this toy set to make everyone who receives it very happy. With this set you’ll receive:
2 catnip bunnies (pastel colors vary)
2 carrots (one in a bunny print, the other in another print)
2 bunny print mice in two patterns (as pictured)
1 heart with ribbons
Got preferences? Ask us in COMMENTS, and if we can, we’ll do it.

Lucy the cat is alive and well in the UK at 39 years! If she were a human she would be 173 years old! What’s Lucy’s secret? Love? Buckets of affection? Catnip? Could Lucy be part vampire?
Our oldest cat crossed the bridge at age 22. Another one at 20, a few at age 18, and a few around age 15 or 16.
When we posted this great article last week to our Facebook page we heard from many of our customers and friends who astonished us with how long many of their cats lived. Of course one person thought the story is a hoax. Well we don’t know, but isn’t it inspiring? We say, hats off to all of you for taking such good care of your cats!
To boost your cat’s longevity we’d like to suggest two of our flower essence formulas: Kidney Kitty (your cat is not too young to begin with this in the water bowl) and Elder Support, which will support the body’s functions during the aging process.
A few years ago we heard that Disneyland in Anaheim, CA had and actually cared for about 200 feral cats who keep the theme park free of rodents.
Cats roaming Disneyland were discovered in the 1950’s. Rather than “get rid of them” the park decided to house and care for them so they could help keep the park clear of mice and rats.
All of the cats are part of the program we know as TNR – Trap Neuter Release. The tipped left ear is what tells you that the cat has been spayed or neutered, and is part of a feral colony.
During the day these cats are kept from the public in special cat ranch hidden on the property. At night they come out to hunt and play! But sometimes one or two sneak out and make themselves seen. This home video shows one of them being fed a few scraps of food at the park’s Hungry Bear Restaurant:
