Catnip, the newsletter for caring cat owners, is published by Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. The goal of Catnip is to present feline medical and behavioral information. Award-winning author Arden Moore is editor. Monthly topics include Feline Behavior, Feline Health, Feline Nutrition, Product Review, Dear Doctor and My Cat. Catniptips are featured throughout.

Two tips I like from the January 2010 issue are:
• Weigh your cat monthly—two extra pounds on an adult cat is like a 10-to20-pound gain in a person.
• If you love plants and cats, consider these cat-safe plants: begonia, lavender, spider plant and violets.

I am pleased to report that the January 2010 issue also features my byline in the My Cat section—Hurricane Cat…the friendship between a woman and a stray endures three hurricanes. Of course, the story is all about Lexie Lee!
