According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one in 5 pet owners has a disability that may limit our ability to physically care for our pets. The founder of KittyKaddie is one. An avid cat lover who often fosters cats until they can find their permanent homes. When she first became disabled, she searched everywhere for pet-care tools that were accessible and effective. There were none. Desperate because she was increasingly unable to even feed her cats, she was becoming depressed at the thought of having to give them away. For many who are ill or physically limited, that’s often when you most value your pet’s companionship.
