12th Anniversary Celebration and Giveaway


This post contains affiliate links*

Today is our 121th anniversary! It really seems impossible that I started this blog, inspired by Amber, the original Conscious Cat, a dozen years ago. And while this is a big 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.

12 years – 4,420 posts – 97,250 comments
18 million page views

Since March 1, 2009, we have brought you 4,420 new posts. More than 97,250 comments are a testament to the strength of our Conscious Cat community. And with more than 18 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.

250,000+ 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.

To celebrate these last eleven years, and to thank all of you for making it all possibly by reading, commenting and sharing, we are delighted to announce that we have a huge Jackson Galaxy Prize Package for one lucky reader!

    I love cats. That’s a given, since I’m here! I enjoy learning about feral cats, and about new and different treatments in the medical/veterinary fields. Thanks for sharing!

    Hello, I am so excited to find your site and am an avid cat lover…working in cat rescue for over 25 years, and proud owner of Kitty Kompany Professional Pet Sitting Services. When COVID came to town, I lost my business after 18 years, as we are heavily linked to the tourist industry. Your site is very informative, and very clean and easy to manage and find the information I need. I did send you an email, I’m hoping that you will be able to contact me back.
