The Catmaste Chronicles Podcast

The Catmaste Chronicles will feature a collection of conversations from people who have inspirational stories to share. The main topic of the podcast is about well-being and how our beloved pets have contributed to our mental and physical wellness.

We have a variety of guests that come from all walks of life from coaches, personal trainers, yogi’s artists, cat daddies and mummies, who have such interesting stories to share. We created this podcast to give space and opportunity to people who are passionate about wellness and animals.

As a cat sitting company owner, my team and I know how much we get from doing this job with cats. It is literally the best job I have ever had and it comes with so many therapeutic benefits. We aren’t just caring for cats, they are also caring for us and showing us in their little unique ways and quirks. So we are interested in bringing together the topics of cats and well-being to see just how fitting they are together.

So whether you want to bring some wellness into your life or just love listening to stories about cats, the catmaste chronicles is for you.
