      Thank you very much for the nice words! We trying to write about our experience and share information that was also useful for us, as the cats’ owners.
      It’s a premium theme with some extra plugins and styling (I’m a web designer, so I’m doing my job :D).
      I hope you will return for some more updates in the future 🙂
