    When you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt. Honore de Balzac

We question our abilities, feel like well never be successful, and, to make matters worse, berate ourselves for feeling that way. Self-doubt is insidious its that little or not so little voice that keeps telling you that youre just not good enough. I dont think cats experience self-doubt in quite the same way we humans do, but some cats are...

  • Mews and Nips: Pizza Hut in Japan Run by Cats?

    from The Conscious Cat

    Friday August 29th, 2014 at 10:00 PM


    Theres no question that cats own the internet, and advertisers are catching on. Pizza Hut recently launched a new campaign in Japan that features cats taking orders, delivering pizzas, cleaning the floors and managing the money. Whether the campaign will actually sell pizza remains to be seen. Im not a fan of putting outfits on cats unless theyre photoshopped, and while I suppose the videos are funny, I find them almost painfully absurd at times. For more about the campaigns, and to see the...

    Were big fans of Nekochan Enterprises here at The Conscious Cat.

    Im five years old today! Mom says she cant believe it. She says it seems like only yesterday that I came to live with her as a rambunctious little kitten.

    Mom says Ive grown into a lovely young lady. She says my manners have improved considerably since the early days, when I chewed off the edges of furniture and attacked Moms ankles. There was a time when Mom was so frustrated that she actually got some advice on how to deal with me from Cat Daddy Jackson Galaxy!

    Mom says Ive come a long way...

    Monday August 25th, 2014 at 10:00 PM


    Ill be honest right from the start: I use clay litter. Even though theres an ever growing array of more eco-friendly, alternative litters on the market, I have yet to find one that Allegra and Ruby will actually use and when it comes to cat litter, ultimately, its your cats call of what goes in the box, right?

    Im always interested to learn about new products, and when we had a chance to test the new ökocat Natural Wood Clumping Litter from Healthy Pet, I was intrigued. As the name implies,...
