Welcome to

Dr. Kathryn Primm on Pet Life Radio

You have heard all the cat myths. Do cats have nine lives? You have watched your cat do quirky things. Why does your cat follow you to the bathroom? We live with these tiny predators, yet we do not truly know them. What do they really need to eat? How do their minds work? Cats are still an enigma. How do you keep your cat fit and healthy? If it is related to cats, I will relate it to you! Together we will explore all aspects of the “cat-o-sphere” and learn everything we can about cats from all kinds of cats-perts and me, Dr. Kat!

Let’s laugh and learn and make cat lives better together on Nine Lives with Dr. Kat.
