Today, we’re celebrating a blogging milestone! On this day, 3 years ago we launched the Pawesome Cats blog. Whilst our content has evolved over time, our goal remains the same — to help cat owners care for, understand and enjoy life with their cats.
Thanks to everyone who stops by our blog to read our posts or leave a comment – we appreciate your ongoing support and friendship.
Here are a few highlights from the last year:
- Collaborating with our pet blogger friends to celebrate Change a Pet’s Life Day, Love Your Pet Day, and Respect Your Cat Day.
- Participating in the quarterly Blog the Change for Animals (BtC4A) campaigns, especially our article on The Dangers of Feeding your Cat a Vegan Diet in April.
- Being nominated as a Finalist for ‘Best Cat Blog’ in the BlogPaws 2016 Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards in May.
- Expanding our Raw Feeding Cats article series in response to reader questions.
- Writing guest posts about raw feeding cats for Cat Centric, Animal Bliss and Keep the Tail Wagging blogs.
- Our interview with Dash Kitten as part of the International Pet Blogging series in May.
- Getting Max’s asthma under control with nutritional supplements to reduce inflammation.
- Celebrating Charlie, Max and Ava’s 5th birthday on 14 September.
- Almost doubling our blog readership over the last 12 months.
Our Five Most Popular Posts
This article remains in the top spot for another year. Obviously, there are a lot of cat owners keen to solve the mystery of WHY their cat has a flabby belly. Thanks to Charlie and his wobbly tummy for the article inspiration!
Moving up a spot from number 3 last year, we released this recipe to celebrate Valentines Day in 2014. Whilst we no longer feed our cats grains as part of their diet – this wholesome and homemade tuna treat recipe was a big hit and it’s super easy to make too.
Did you know that if you dream about a black cat it’s a sign that good luck is coming your way? Another article from 2013, which was designed to help break down the myths surrounding black cats and ultimately increase the adoption rates of black cats in shelters.
Cats are naturally curious and jumping on kitchen counters is a common behavioural problem. Even with our knowledge of cat behaviour we still struggle with this. Our course, it doesn’t help that the birds nest in trees right outside our kitchen window – so the counter is the purrfect viewing platform.
With a growing number of people living in apartments, there is demand for information on which cats are more likely to adapt to an indoor lifestyle. We also discuss catification and the importance of vertical territory.
If you have a favourite from our blog posts over the last year, we’d love to hear it. As always, your feedback and comments are appreciated.
