Today is our 11th anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been more than a decade ago that I started this blog, inspired by Amber, the original Conscious Cat. And while this is a huge milestone for Allegra 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.

11 years – 4,551 posts – 93,100 comments
16 million page views

Since March 1, 2009, we have brought you 4,551 new posts. More than 93,000 comments are a testament to the strength of our Conscious Cat community. And with more than 16 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 parents looking for reliable information about cat healthbehavior and nutrition, as well as new cat productsbook reviews, and more.

240,000+ social media followers

Our community extends to our Facebook page and Instagram. Both attract 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 both. We post unique content and lots of cat photos and videos several times each day. We’re also represented on Twitter and Pinterest. Social media may have its drawbacks, but it’s truly wonderful 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 presented 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.

Of course, this anniversary is bittersweet for us. I never thought Ruby would no longer be with us as we celebrate this milestone. Since she will always be a part of The Conscious Cat, I decided to include her in the graphic for this celebration. She would have loved that tuna cake, that’s for sure.


To celebrate these last eleven years, and to thank all of you for making it all possibly by reading, commenting and sharing, we have a BIG giveaway for you!

  19. Congratulations, Ingrid! Such a wonderful way to celebrate 11 fabulous years!
    Thank you so much for devoting your time to helping cat lovers give their cats the best life possible.

  20. I love your newsletter and the adventures of your cats. I have a seventeen year old Birman that is in the early stages of renal failure. Reading about Ruby and your journey has opened my eyes as to what to expect. I too will choose hospice care. I don’t want to put her through anything I wouldn’t want done to or for me.

    I have four other cats of varying ages, most of whom get along with each other. These four are all rescues. I love all of my cats and don’t know what I’ll ever do without them. The four would love any of the giveaway items but I think my Birman would pick the cat cave.

    Keep up what you are doing for all of us cat parents. We love you,

  24. Congratulations on 11 years! I really enjoy your blog and have learned so much about cat health and cat behavior. I also like reading the questions that the vet answers. I also look forward to seeing the new cat products featured on the blog.

  25. I’m new to the blog. After saying goodbye to my 3 cats of the last 15 years (and feeling that it was premature), I became determined to provide the best possible life for my next gang. I’ve now read several books (most noteably “Tiny but Mighty” by Hannah Shaw), and not only plan to adopt but also start fostering kittens & cats in need in Albuquerque, NM. Thank you all for the many ideas, sharing, and support… I’ll be back!
