Cat Wisdom 101 Celebrates 2nd Anniversary & World’s Best Cat Litter Giveaway

We are pleased as punch to announce our 2nd blogoversary at Cat Wisdom 101. Over a million people have visited us since we launched so I’d like to say, thanks a million! We couldn’t have done it without you, dear cat lover.

When I began blogging back in 2008 at Boomer Muse, I thought blogging was just a fun hobby. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I’d become a top blogger. Two years ago I launched Cat Wisdom 101 with the intention to enlighten and entertain cat lovers. I wanted it to be the best of everything cat-related with all original content from vet and cat behavior advice to my unique photographs. You can be sure I will continue to bring you dear reader the very best. In fact, I’d say the best is yet to be. In the meantime, we’ve amassed a huge archive of material you can search on many subjects. Enjoy!

When Alice in Wonderland came to a fork in the road ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked.
‘Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat.
‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered.
‘Then,’ said the Cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.”

I believe in order to know where you want to go, you need to know where you’ve been. Here are a few milestones of our journey.

It’s my passion to change lives one purr at a time.

  1. I am new to Cat Wisdom but I already like it here. It’s fun, you see. A friend told me come here, that if I win that cat litter, it’ll be easy street here for an entire year. So here I came and I like what I see, regardless of the litter contest. Am I in? The contest that is? It is my wildest dream to win! All in I am.

  2. Well, I started the Feral Cat Rescue Project blog around the same time – back in 2007, I guess. I started on my art blog and then made a blog just for cats. I didn’t even know anyone else was out there, I just saw a need and started filling that need. became an anchor for me, so I didn’t feel stupid and/or alone. Thank you.
    Sharing to Pinterest and FB.

  3. I love the pictures of the cats, the reiviews, giveaways and news! I have four cats and save strays so your site is just Purrfect for us!

  4. oh my goodness I would LOVE a year’s supply of World’s Best Cat Litter!! It truly is the best; my two senior cats both have kidney disease so they make a LOT of urine. World’s Best is truly amazing at absorbing it all into nice tight clumps that don’t crumble when scooped! My allergies and asthma have become so much better since I switched to World’s Best from traditional clay litter-hardly any dust with this litter. And of course I love that it is an environmentally friendly product.

  5. Of course the giveaways are great, but the reviews & information about interesting products are most appreciated – along with the general celebration of all things feline!

  6. Happy Anniversary! I love Cat Wisdom 101 because you impart great information in a positive atmosphere. Always the best way to go. And you make us all feel at home here. Good job!

    I’ve learned a lot from your blog and so many of the vet posts have been helpful.
    For a while I stopped getting your posts by email (computer gremlins). When I checked back, I was surprised how much I’d missed!
    Thank you, Layla!

  17. Concatulations on your wonderful 2nd blogoversary, and here’s to many, many more! I love your site because I love people who love kitties, who write about kitties, and who provide photos of kitties! I guess you could say that I’m kitty-krazy!

  18. A very Happy Blogoversary to all of you kitties. You have done such a good job. We would love to be entered in the Cat litter drawing.
    Hope you have a wonderful day.

  19. Congrats and Happy Anniversary. I am thankful to have found your blog. What I like best. That is hard one as I enjoy everything. Your blog makes me feel like I am part of a big cat family of cat lovers. I love all the different topics and giveaways. And the best part is hearing about your kitties and seeing pictures of them. I shared on Facebook and Twitter.

    1. Sue, I love your comment: Your blog makes me feel like I am part of a big cat family of cat lovers. I love all the different topics and giveaways. And the best part is hearing about your kitties and seeing pictures of them.

  20. Concatulations on your 2nd blogoversary and for sharing a little more about yourself. We unfortunately don’t do Facebook or Twitter so can’t follow there. We love the varied information you provide about kitties. We would love to win a year’s worth of litter. With eight of us, that is something we could really use ourselves as well as share with the no kill shelter/TNR program our mom supports. Keep up the good work. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  21. HUGE CONCATULATIONS and best wishes moving forward!
    Kudos to all you have accomplished and if you enter us in the give-away and we are picked, just please donate our litter to the shelter of your choice since we are Catvocates for World’s Best too along with many others 🙂

    Hoping you have many more great blogoversaries in the future!

  23. Concatulations Miss Layla and ‘da boys! We love, love, love your blog and your photos are stunning (well, how can you help it with such handsome models???) We appreciate all you do for the world of kitties our there, and we thank you for the support you have given us in our 1st year. Headbonks and purrs to all. Much love,
    Harry, Dexter, Tipp, and Mom and Dad.

  24. Wow, so much is going for you. I love all your boyz, but especially Odin and Domino.

    Really, really great.

    Ched and Mao = we found them through Petfinders in 2002.

    Such beautiful paintings you have of the cat/cartoons.

    You are writing a book I believe and I am sure you are illustrating it, as well.

    Such great work and honors for you.
    ( I can’t think this time of night.)

  25. Layla,
    Happy Anniversary!! You and your boys do a wonderful job each day giving us food for thought or a giveaway. I know I’m going to smile or learn something everyday and look forward to your post. Todays’ was a busy one with the pinning and posting to face book, great photos. I have gone back thru your articles and have read alot. I did learn about your work with cats, which is fantastic. I bet you help alot get thru their fears, etc. I previously thought you just worked with humans. Maybe you do both, I tried to see the preview of your Etsy shop, have to try again tomorrow. Also have to bookmark petfinders and Worlds Best Litter, I can’t think of the name of the newest scent. It is a wonderful litter. Wish I could afford it year round! I’m looking forward to Odin’s birthday party, we have a laptop, so it really will be fun.
    Hope you get all you wish for in your new blogging year!!
