About Us

Richard ParkerLike us, you’re a real cat lover. You’d go to the ends of the earth for your senior cat, but it’s not always easy.

You may have questions and worries; you may be facing a long-term condition (like your senior kitty has arthritis), or it may be a short-term illness (such as your cat not eating or drinking).

Who is Richard Parker?

I’m Richard and here to help. On this page, we tell you a little more about what we do, and why.

I am a freelance writer and editor, experienced in all cat health-related matters, behavioral issues, grooming techniques, and general pet care. I earned a degree in journalism in 2008. I am the proud owner of 5 adult cats (all adopted strays), including a senior cat who is almost 20.

The Senior Cat Wellness Mission

What’s our mission at Senior Cat Wellness? It’s genuinely straightforward – to point the way to the best solutions and to find answers for your cat’s issues.

The Senior Cat Wellness Vision

We have a single aim – to become the destination for those with questions and concerns about their senior cat. With every guide we write, we focus on providing support and unbiased advice to help you make the right decisions for your feline.

In the U.S. it’s NOT dogs who are a man’s best friend…

It’s the classic debate – which makes the better pet? Dogs or cats? Americans sit on the kitty’s side of the fence, with 85.8 million cats owned in the United States, compared to 78 million dogs (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

The Senior Cat Wellness team are all the proud best pal of a cat.

 “51% of American cat-owning homes have more than one cat”.
