About Us

Hello, fellow pet lovers!

Welcome, from our large family—15 individuals in total—to yours. No, that is not as chaotic as it may sound. We’ll explain soon enough!

Māris Munkevics and Signe Munkevica

We are the two adults behind this website: Maris, who is a cat behaviorist, and Signe, who is a veterinarian and pet groomer. We have two beautiful kids, Lauma and Renars, who teach us a lot about how to communicate with animals.

Of course, our family also include pets! Three cats: Jersey, Leo, and Bella; two dogs of varying sizes, Chandra and Merida; and six small aquarium fish. That adds up to 15, which is why we said it was not as chaotic as it sounds.

Here on our website, we want to share our experiences about how small changes in your home and habits can improve your pet’s behavior, well-being, and health. While our emphasis and field of expertise is on cats, once in a while you will learn about dogs and other pets, too.

As we’ve learned to understand animals, we have also learned that often all you need is to understand their true nature in order to please them. And when your pet is pleased, you will feel pleased. After all, happy cats leave your slippers dry. Happy cats sleep through the night. Happy dogs bark only when there is a reason to do so.

Our story is not told through our jobs alone. As owners of pets that some may describe as being too many for the size of our house, we have faced our own set of challenges along the way. For example, our three cats were introduced to one another at adult ages. Most cat owners would describe their initial interactions as hopeless, and yet they now all peacefully sleep on the same bed.

We’re sure you can accomplish your goals, too!
