The Conscious Cat named one of the Top 5 Pet Blogs

cat_blog

I am honored and excited excited that The Conscious Cat was named as one of the Top 5 Pet Blogs by SheKnows.com, one of the top 10 most visited websites for women!

“Cats are some of the most widely loved — and misunderstood — creatures out there. Luckily, websites like The Conscious Cat exist to give us feline lovers information we didn’t know we needed.

She even wrote a book about the experience of adopting Buckley and the grief she went through when she succumbed to heart disease. Another must-read for all cat lovers.”

And we’re in some amazing company: the other four blogs are the I Can Haz Cheezburger empire, Continue Reading
