    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...

    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,...

    Flying is going to get a little less stressful for British Airways passengers. The airline figured that since watching adorable videos of cats (and puppies) on the internet is relaxing, why not introduce an entire channel dedicated to light-hearted footage of cats and dogs. British Airways will launch its new Paws and Relax channel on long haul flights this September. We discovered some scientific research that proves watching images of cute animals can actually lower your heart rate and...
