The cat who inspired it all

Jackson the blind cat inspired a business that helps beloved cats everywhere. As Jackson got older, his eye sight took a turn for the worst, making it difficult for him to find the litter box. He eventually went blind. Not only was this uncomfortable for Jackson, but our family as well. As Jackson continued to LG struggle making his way to the litter box, we were constantly right behind him cleaning up. However, this wasn't enough of a reason to give up. He wasn't just a cat, he was part of our family. He rode along on family trips and made lasting impressions on everyone he met. Refusing to give up on our blind companion, we knew something had to be done---Litter Getter was born.

How many cat breeds are there?

Have you ever wondered why there are over 600 different dog breeds and only about seventy cat breeds?

One of the reasons why is because dogs have been domesticated for a longer time than cats. They were essential for people of that time because they served as hunters, sled haulers and herders. Humans started to cross breed dogs to produce more work efficient breeds. When cats were finally domesticated, they became mousers and travel companions for humans. During the 1950’s new breeds started to appear due to erupted popularity of cats. The three biggest cat organizations are: The Cat Fanciers' Association, the American Cat Fanciers Association and the International Cat Association. Today there are about seventy-three official cat pedigrees that are divided into two main categories: long-haired Persian and domestic shorthair. In order to produce a purebred cat, cat breeders had to interbreed cats with desired characteristics for four generations, only after four generations a cat breed could be officially recognized. Today the same technique is used as well.

Cats that have short hair, with stalky or long and lean body types and elongated heads are believed to be non-purebreds most of the time. The moggies usually are brown striped and blotched or “tabby” colored.
