A bit more about me, Dr Jo Lewis...
I've spent over two decades listening to hearts & taking blood samples, but I've always known that
it's just as important to watch & listen to
what cats (& their humans) are telling me.
I've adored, studied and helped cats all my life. The raw deal they often get when visiting the vet really upset me. I knew I could make a difference, so without a business bone in my body, I single-handedly set up The Cat Vet and the UK’s first dedicated feline home-visiting vet clinic.

What's My Cat Thinking?
Visiting pet cats in their natural habitat has been such an uplifting experience - a far cry from the chaotic clinical environment I left behind. It's also given me a unique insight and understanding of what makes cats tick, their natural behaviour & subtle bodily language. And the best part is that I've used what I've learned to help so many of them live longer, happier, healthier lives.
Many a cup of tea has been sipped chatting with people like you about the importance of learning to 'think like a cat' - not just the beautiful, complex character who bats you in the face at 4am, but their inner ancestral wildcat - the one that drives every pet cat's thoughts, feelings and behaviour. You could say I'm on a 'think like a cat' mission and I'm really looking forward to sharing how it's done!
Whether you're a human or a feline, mind and body health are so intimately connected. With our cats living amidst the pressures of the hectic, modern lives we lead, it's never been more important to understand and help them to live their best life. It's what drove me to start my clinic, write my book What's My Cat Thinking? and it's the basis of my online cat education resources, blog and courses.
Whatever corner of the world you call home, you and your cat can sprawl on the sofa together & benefit from the wisdom and expert practical tips that I'm so keen to share with you.
