If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we explained how to do a home health check on your cat, on  Tuesday, we featured a multi-functional piece of cat furniture that provides a window perch and doubles as storage space, on Wednesday, Allegra shared ten things about herself, on Thursday, we informed you about a fantastic summer sale on Basepaws DNA tests, and on Friday, we told you about the 2022 Texts from Mittens calendar.
