Cat Chat ®

Tracie originally spent 7 years on the Martha Stewart channel of SiriusXM satellite radio producing and hosting CAT CHAT® as a live, call-in show - helping cat owners solve the mysteries and challenges of living with felines, base don her encyclopedic book, THE CAT BIBLE: Everything Your Cat Expects You to Know, which exposed myths and misconceptions, especially about what to feed a cat (calling any dry food for the obligate carnivores “kitty crack”). This show 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.
