CAT CHAT®: Cat Health, Behavior and Training with Tracie Hotchner
Listen to all the shows in the podcast library.
Tracie has spent many years helping cat owners solve the mysteries and challenges of living with cat behaviors and attitudes, which can be baffling to the people who live with them. Tracie's encyclopedic book THE CAT BIBLE: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know exposed many myths and misconceptions, especially about how to feed a cat (calling any dry food for the obligate carnivores “kitty crack”). Tracie had a wonderful 7-year run hosting and producing the popular radio show CAT CHAT® on SiriusXM satellite radio, until the Martha Stewart channel was canceled. CAT CHAT continues on Radio Pet Lady Network and Tracie continues to offer advice, information and support for cat lovers, with the on-air assistance of the Official Vet of the show, Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins, offering solutions to make it easier and more pleasurable to share one's life with a kitty cat.
