The Conscious Cat was awarded four Certificates of Excellence in the Cat Writers’ Association’s annual contest! The contest showcases the very best in the feline field of professional writers, broadcasters, photographers and graphic artists.

The Conscious Cat received a certificate for the “Website” category.

I also received Certificates of Excellence for three individual articles in the categories of “Online Article – Health and General Care” and “Online Article – Behavior and Training.” The winning articles are:

Stomatitis: Painful for Cats, Frustrating for Guardians and Veterinarians

High-tech Medicine for Your Cat: MRI’s

Redirected Aggression: When Good Cats Attack

In addition to these four certificates, I was also awarded a certificate in the category “Magazine Article – Any Other Topic” for my article One Happy Feline, published in the June 2012 issue of Cat Fancy.

Winning these certificates also means that I’m a finalist for the coveted Muse™ Medallion Awards. Muse Medallion Award winners will be announced at the annual CWA conference in November.

Since the standards for winning these awards are very high and winners are determined by a jury of my peers, this kind of recognition of my work means the world to me.
