😻 Applause! Applause! Applause! 😻

I was cleaning out the litter boxes the other night while listening to ‘America’s Got Talent’ in the background.

As I finished the last scoop, I heard the audience go wild as Simon shouted out…

“You’ve Got FOUR Yeses!!!”

I took a bow.

😻 This website is written by a cat! (Just Kidding!) 😻

This site is brought to you by a Single Guy. (and I’m not talking about his marital status either) lol

Hello, I’m Doug Hines, publisher of

I jokingly refer to myself as a ‘cat aficionado extraordinaire.’ My ‘cat journey’ started one day years ago when I was feeding my cat Bubby (who has since passed away). I stopped to read the cat food can’s ingredient list and was mystified by many of the words. Concerned for Bubby’s health, I wanted to know the answer to a simple question; “Is this stuff good for Bubby?”

I started intense study and extensive research which lasted years and culminated in a database of over 1500 canned cats foods. That study ultimately led to presenting the data in a website called I began to add ‘cat news’ to the food site, and the news quickly grew. became a new website –

My background? I’m a Navy Veteran and past Motor Yacht Captain who, in retirement, has become a prolific website designer. 

My ‘other time’ is spent caring for my cats – Mindy & Grady (pics below). “You’ve heard of a ‘Horse Whisperer’? Well, I’m a ‘Cat Shouter’! “GET OFF OF THAT KITCHEN COUNTER GRADY! IF I HAVE TO TELL YOU ONE MORE TIME…” (Just a little humor here folks. I would never yell at my cats. LOL)

(I have a friend who wants to name her next cat “NO.”  Here it comes… “NO get out of those flowers!” “NO Stop running around and let me sleep!) LOL

In addition to my cat websites, I also have a site about humans titled The (see below).

If things don’t change around here…

A personal note:  Like many of you I live in constant fear of what the near future might bring during this virus mess. I am especially on edge because I am in a vulnerable group. I’m old, I’ve recently had a string of health problems, and I am most probably susceptible to further illness. So every time I cough or sneeze or even ‘think’ I might have a slight fever, I’m already planning for the worst.

Why am I telling you this? If the stories on the front page of Cat News Headlines® suddenly fail to change, if the page appears to you as it did several days ago, you can pretty much assume that something has gone wrong. Since I work alone – there is no ‘staff’ at Cat News Headlines® – there will be no one to carry on bringing you the cat news.

And, of course, health problems aren’t the only thing that could halt this website’s production. I live in a less-than-desirable, stressful financial situation. The loss of my computer or the loss of my ability to pay for website services, or should I just not be able to pay the rent, buy food, and care for my cats, all could bring about my sudden demise. We all know what stress can do.

Anyway, I just thought you would want to know what happened if the date on the front page doesn’t change. It’s the kind of truth we all must consider nowadays – especially if we are a one man band working alone.  – Doug Hines
