It’s our 4th anniversary, and we have a giveaway to thank you!

Today is our 4th blog anniversary! And while this is a huge milestone and cause for celebration for Allegra, Ruby and me, this day really belongs to you, our wonderful readers. Thank you for reading, commenting, and sharing every day!

It’s been an exciting year for The Conscious Cat. In March, we were voted Best Website About Cats on In October, we won the Pettie for Best Cat Blog. We won four Certificates of Excellence from the Cat Writers Association for four individual articles, and in November, The Conscious Cat won a Muse Medallion for Best Website.

We’ve come a long way in four years. The Conscious Cat has become a trusted site for cat guardians looking for reliable information about cat health, behavior and nutrition, as well as new cat-related products, books and services. Our Conscious Cat Sunday feature provides feline wisdom and inspurr-ation each week.

But most of all, this site, as well as our Facebook page, have turned into a wonderful community of cat lovers – and that’s what I love most about blogging. I love connecting with our readers, and with other bloggers. I treasure the friendships that have resulted from these connections. The most amazing example of how a blog can connect people is a post I wrote in August of 2009 titled Tortitude – The Unique Personality of Tortoiseshell Cats. The post has generated almost 12,000 comments, and has turned into the online home of a community of tortie lovers.

To celebrate, and to thank all of you for reading, commenting and sharing, we’re giving away a $50 Visa Gift Card – and it’s a very special gift card, featuring Allegra and Ruby!

    Love your Blog. I just moved the kitty litter pan away from the laundry and now have a happy kitty and a happy me. Never thought about the noise factor that could be causing a stressful situation vs. a real problem. Thank you! I will share as well on fb.
