11th Anniversary Celebration and BIG Giveaway

11th-anniversary-celebration

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

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.

Ruby

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!

    I love all the information! I am a new cat “owner” (pretty sure she owns me, lol) and need all the help I can get! For example, had never heard of the Garden Complex (cool cat shelves that I can mount on the walls for her?!!)… which I just saw advertised on this article and now I am really intrigued! I have some empty walls that could use something on them and what better way to dress them up than with something that’s also great for my kitty, that she’ll love! Thanks for all the great tips!!

    i almost forgot to mention that I stopped breeding and showing Tabby Persians in
    CFA in 2008. I now have only one spayed Cream colored Persian and 3 cats from local shelters. I have volunteered in the Adoption Center of the Madera County (CA) shelter, and I used to spend Saturdays helping potential adopters find cats or kittens, puppies or dogs for their forever homes. I’m a retired Spanish bilingual teacher, and the shelter needed a bilingual volunteer for the many Spanish-speaking
    people in our county. It was very rewarding to see how many beautiful, loving pets
    adopted from our shelter found their forever homes with suitable families!

    Please see my comments on The Conscious Cat’s Facebook page regarding my
    gratefulness for the support and information of the daily posts. I also described my experience as a conscentious CFA Persian breeder and exhibitor. I have always been interested in cutting-edge information on feline health and behavior. I have
    subscribed to Catnip (from the Tufts University Vet school) and to Cat Watch (from the Cornell Feline Health Center at the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine) for at least 15 years. The information in The Conscious Cat really supports what I read every month in Catnip and Cat Watch. Again, thanks for the innovative and up-to-date information shared on the Conscious Cat. I have alsobought and read many of Ingrid’s books, and have purchased many of the feline products introduced on the Conscious Cat. My cats (I live in THEIR house!) LOVE them!
