It’s our First Blog Anniversary!

The Conscious Cat is one year old today!   And what an amazing year it has been – a year ago, I couldn’t have imagined how quickly this blog would become popular and how fast our readership would be growing since our first post.  Thank you to all of you who read, comment, and share what you read here with others – this site wouldn’t be what it has become without your support. 

I started The Conscious Cat to share my passion and knowledge about conscious living, health and happiness for pets and their people.  Over time, I began to include book reviews, author interviews, feline lifestyle articles, and more.  Amber, the inspiration behind this site, has her own category, Amber’s Mewsings, where she shares her feline wisdom with us mere humans.

We’ll be celebrating here all week long!  To kick off the celebration, we’re offering a fabulous giveaway – a gift basket from Whimsy Cats that includes an autographed copy of Buckley’s Story and lots of fun surprises for your feline family members.

To enter the giveaway:

  • Leave a comment on this post.
  • Tweet about this giveaway or share it on Facebook for an additional chance to win and leave the link to your tweet/share in a separate comment.
  • Subscribe to The Conscious Cat via  e-mail.  If you’re already subscribed, you’re automatically entered in the giveway.
  • Blog about this giveaway on your blog and leave the link in a separate comment.

The giveaway is open until midnight Monday, March 15.

Our birthday week celebrations continue tomorrow with an announcement of some exciting new things coming to you from The Conscious Cat.   On Wednesday, we’ll have a very special guest blogger.  And of course, our birthday week celebration wouldn’t be complete without Amber’s Mewsings on Friday.  We hope you enjoy our birthday week!

    “Wow!! What a package of goodies!!
    If I win, then
    1) Meowmie alreddy has this wunnerful book so she will give this copy to her FAVORITE Kat Reskewer
    2) I, Big Bad Baby Twinkle will get ALL the toys – and
    3) Cee Cee can Play with the crinkly wrapping paper — what’s fair is fair!!!
    PS– ok ok — IF I cannot fit into that pretty basket, then Cee Cee can have it for a beddie.”

    Kind regards from Meowmie, BBBT and Cee Cee to Amber (Who LOOKS like Cee Cee!!!) and Ingrid.

  11. Esme, I think that’s wonderful that you donated what would have been the fine for the ticket to sponsor some needy kitties.

    Fisher, thank you – I’m so glad you like our site!

  12. Thank you for your votes and support-I think the kitties may get a gift certificate-which depending on the form I will give part of it to some animal foundation/sponsor another cat-did you ever read my post about the traffic ticket I got out of so instead I took the traffic fine that would have been and donated it to sponsor some kitties.
