This giveaway is sponsored by participating brands and contains affiliate links*

Today is our 9th anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been nine years since I started this blog, inspired by Amber, the original Conscious Cat. And while this is a huge milestone for Allegra, Ruby and me, this day really belongs to you, our readers. Without you, we wouldn’t be here, and we appreciate you so much for reading, commenting, and sharing every day.

9 years – 3,291 posts – 82,477 comments – 12.5 million page views

Since March 1, 2009, we have brought you 3,291 new posts. 82,477 comments are a testament to the strength of our Conscious Cat community. And with more than 12.5 million page views, our site is reaching an ever growing audience of cat lovers who want the best for their feline family members.

The Conscious Cat has become the “go to” site for cat guardians looking for reliable information about cat healthbehavior and nutrition, as well as new cat productsbook reviews, and more. Our Conscious Cat Sunday feature provides feline wisdom and inspurr-ation each week.

223,670 Facebook Fans

Our community extends to our Facebook page, which, at 223,670 and counting, attracts new cat lovers who enjoy sharing their love for cats with a group of like minded people every day. It’s truly a joy to curate this page. We post unique content and lots and lots of cat photos and videos several times each day, and we love seeing your photos and contributions on the page. We’re also represented on TwitterInstagram and Pinterest. The internet is truly a wonderful place when it creates thriving communities like ours.

Happy, Healthy Cats and Humans

But the numbers don’t tell the whole story. Behind these numbers are countless cats who live happier and healthier lives thanks to the information their humans have found on this site. There’s nothing that makes me happier than receiving messages from readers whose cats have been helped by the information found here.

To celebrate all of this bounty, and to thank all of you for reading, commenting and sharing, we have a BIG giveaway for you!

Providing 4 levels of pure fun, this tree stands nearly 72″ high. The real bark acts as a natural scratching post.

Sleepypod Air Carrier

Sleepypod-Air-tortie

If you’ve ever had to research traveling by plane with your cat, you have most likely run into confusing size restrictions, depending on which airline you check with. The Sleepypod Air’s innovative design addresses this issue by providing size versatility through flexibility. The unique design allows the carrier to contract to fit under the seat during takeoff and landing. Once the plane is in the air, the carrier can easily be expanded so that your cat can have the largest possible space underneath the seat. And of course, the Sleepypod Air also maintains the same strict safety standards as all of Sleepypod’s carriers and was put through the same safety testing that continues to position Sleepypod among one of the safest pet product manufacturers on the market.

    The Conscious Cat has been our goto site ever since we addopted our Saul kitty in 2012 and he was having major health issues, it turns out they were due to food, namely he cannot tolerate any sort of dry food. I discovered this through research begun on this site, it quite literally saved his life.

    This is so awesome, and a huge happy anniversary of 9 years! That is so cool! I really love the versatility of the content that you write about. Your information, tips and guides have helped me so much since 1 year ago, when I decided to of course take in the beautiful mama cat and her two kittens that I found in my garage. They obviously must love your site as well because of all of the goodies I get to bring home based on your recommendations. I look forward to reading many more years 🙂

    I’ve learned so much from The Conscious Cat, and have referred several friends to you to help them deal with various situations. While I haven’t switched to a raw diet, up to now your posts about feeding (how to, what to, etc.) have been the most valuable, and have definitely helped improve the health of my kitties. Thank you!

    Nine years is a long time for a blog to survive, period! Most of us on the Interwebs do have cats, and respect them like family members, but your blog makes us feel sane.
    I adore my Benevolent Overlady, Schrödinger, and I do believe that thanks to your posts, articles and resources, I’m becoming a much better Caregiver to her. She’s 15 now and still as sassy as ever.
    From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much.
