Welcome to Cats, Kids, Chaos. We started over 9 years ago, originally as The Mad House of Cats & Babies, in a blur of sleep deprivation. We share family life as we live and see it, and try to keep it real. I write about food allergies, homeschooling, parenting a teenager, product reviews and everything in between.
