Liability Disclaimer For Editorial Content
Pet Cat Friends is not a source for veterinary advice. We try to help our readers better understand their pets, however the content on this blog is not a substitute for professional veterinary guidance. We are bloggers and writers, not vets!
How We Use Affiliate Programs
We are no fans of ads and want to have none of them. You may have noticed this when you came to Pet Cat Friends and were not bombarded with ads. Did you notice how quickly our pages load? One big reason is that we don’t use ads and are passively supported by our readers instead!
Passive reader support simply means that we rely on commissions from products that our readers purchase on websites that we link to. This never costs you anything extra. Our commission comes out of the pocket of the online stores we link to. We earn on any product that gets sold after you click on one of our affiliate links. This way you can rest assured that our recommendations are independent and are not altered by any profit goals.
A website like Pet Cat Friends is expensive to maintain, and product tests are time consuming and come with expenditure as well. It is our job! Affiliate programs are the perfect way to keep the lights on and provide helpful content while entirely avoiding intrusive ads.
We’re currently partnering with the following affiliate programs.
- Amazon Affiliates – Pet Cat Friends is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. This means we may promote and supply links to products on Amazon and earn a commission for any resulting sales made. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. This comes at no extra cost to you.
FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. The readers need to know if the content publisher is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
Any/all of the links on petcatfriends.com are affiliate links for which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on petcatfriends.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from petcatfriends.com).
Amazon and/or other companies pay petcatfriends.com a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Clicking an affiliate link and clicking a non-affiliate link does not change the price or anything else for the visitor.

What About Sponsored Content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to provide authentic, un-biased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on petcatfriends.com, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
Your purchase helps support my research efforts. Thank you very, very much! I appreciate you!
