We love cats, and we know you do too, cause that’s why you’re here! Our mission as cat lovers is to ensure both cats and their owners have the best life possible! Excited Cats is dedicated to bringing you the very best in kitty-care resources, so you can rest assured that your cat is “feline-good” (we’re also huge fans of cat puns if you haven’t noticed yet).

The Cat Lovers Behind Excited Cats

Creator of Excited Cats

Roland Jakob

Roland has been an animal lover all his life, with cats holding a special place in his heart. He is owned by three felines: Wheely, KitzKitz, and Nugget (all rescues) who bring all the laughter and mischievousness one can expect from the feline master race. As a result, Roland now works for and writes about cats, providing in-depth educational articles to assist in the search for the best gear to help improve the health and wellbeing of his cats. 

Roland is an avid writer and a frequent contributor/editor to feline publications and websites; this work influenced his decision to create ExcitedCats.com as he wanted to share his knowledge with people all over the world. A Canadian expat, he now lives in Europe under the benevolent rulership of their feline overlords.

“In ancient times, cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.” – Terry Pratchett


Veterinarian, MRCVSt

Dr. Joanna Woodnutt

Hi! I’m Dr Joanna Woodnutt!

I’m an experienced vet working mainly with companion animals. Whilst I still work two days a week for a local practice, I realized that I could help more people if I wrote down some of the things I talked about in my consultations. I now spend most of my time writing about pet health for a range of magazines and websites, so that people all over the world can learn more about their pets.

Christian Adams

Cat Dad & Content Editor

Christian Adams

An American expat living in Metro Manila, Philippines for over a decade, Christian is a lifelong cat lover and the proud papa of two rescue cats, Trixie and Chloe. Both girls were formerly among the droves of strays that roam the cities and countryside. Three-year-old Trixie was pulled from a litter found under the porch of a neighbor’s house, while two-year-old Chloe was brought home by Christian’s young son, Henry, who found the kitten crying in the parking lot. As managing editor of ExcitedCats.com, Christian is thrilled to be a part of the pro-feline movement.

Kathryn Copeland


Kathryn Copeland

Kathryn was a librarian in a previous lifetime and is currently a writer about all things pets. When she was a child, she hoped to work in zoos or with wildlife in some way, thanks to her all-consuming love for animals. Unfortunately, she's not strong in the sciences, so she fills her days with researching and writing about all kinds of animals and spends time playing with her adorable but terribly naughty tabby cat, Bella. Kathryn is hoping to add to her family in the near future – maybe another cat and a dog.
