Dreaming Big

If you love cats, sharing makes us purrrr :-)

Voting for the Pettie Awards ends this Friday, July 29 and I think everyone, from the nominees to the voters will be relieved. I’ve interviewed several of the Pettie nominees and wish them all good luck. Everyone wants to win but during the “vote for me” frenzy, I reflected on the reasons why we’re voting. Maybe you’re voting for friend. Maybe you really believe in a certain cause. Whatever the reason, it comes down to loving and helping pets. Every Pettie winner, and there will be eight, will win $1000 dollars for the pet shelter of their choice.

Every win begins with a dream. Long before there were Pettie awards, or pet blogs, there were individuals with dreams of creating something around their passion: their pets (cat and or dogs).

I love all animals but I’m 110% cat lover. It’s my dream to see cats sweep the awards. There is only one cat blog in the Best Pet Blog category. I hope you share my dream. Merlin thinks you should…


The Conscious Cat is nominated in two categories: Best Cat Blog and Best Pet Blog. Ingrid King of The Conscious Cat has two cats, Allegra and Ruby. They like to think big and why not? That means one award for each of them, but you decide who wins.

Vote here Pettie Awards.

Update: This contest has closed. So much for supporting a friend. Ingrid my former friend dropped me like a hot potato after I introduced her to Jackson Galaxy and she parlayed the op to where she is now. That dear reader, is only one tiny story of the catty cat world. I could write a book but it’s not worth the aggravation.

    We are just excited that the winner gets to give the money to a shelter. They all need the money so badly. And each category gets $1000.00 which is just terrific. As far as I am concerned, everyone is a winner when the homeless cats get something out of it. Take care.

  • Ingrid King

    Thank you so much for your support, Layla (and Deb, too!). Allegra and Ruby are not only dreaming big, they’re also excited that winning will help cats who aren’t as fortunate as they have been. We’ve chosen to split the prize money between two rescue groups we admire: Casey’s House, who rescued Buckley, and Kitten Associates, founded and run by fellow Pettie nominee Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair.

    Good luck to all Pettie nominees!

  • Deb Barnes - Zee and Zoey

    We are hopeful for a big win for Conscious Cat as well. No doubt about it, cats reign supreme and we love each and everyone of them for their unique individuality. Seeing a cat sweep at the Petties would be pawsome!

    Zee and Zoey would be thrilled for a win as well, but as the days have gone by during this frentic vote-a-thon, we have come to learn so much more about these amazing creatures and why it is so crucial to educate the world on the need for responsible cat ownership to stop the cruel and inhumane epidemic of cat overpopulation on the streets and in shelters. In that regard, we have already won and we will continue to spread that message wherever we can.

    Good luck to all the Petties Nominees!
