Lelu and Bobo is a cat and veterinary-approved site (yes, our cats approve!). We want the best for our cats and obsessively research topics before making recommendations. If we wouldn’t eat a type of cat food ourselves, we won’t recommend it. That’s how much we care. Our team is made up of equally obsessed cat people and experts. As an Amazon Associate, and because we need to keep the lights on, we earn from qualifying purchases. Thank you for your support and readership!
