The Petties 2012 Best Blog Post Award

We are truly honored.

We are truly honored to have won The Petties 2012 Best Blog Post Award.  We were thrilled to be finalists and when we Petties 2012 Best Blog Postlearned of  the other finalists in our category, all super talented wonderful friends and fellow cat writers, we knew we would be thrilled no matter who won, because  Dogtime Media makes a generous donation to a non-profit shelter and we knew that our cousins in need would be getting some much needed help.

Just a couple days after we returned home from the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, we received and email from The Petties, asking us:

What makes the post that you’re nominated for so important?

Having just spent time learning more about the plight of the wild cheetah, as well as leopards and lions, the article that was nominated meant even more to us, and this was the answer that we sent back to The Petties.

Loss and fragmentation of habitat and depletion of prey are leading to rapidly declining populations of wildlife and in particular predators.   Ecosystems need predators to remain healthy, yet humans continue to persecute and eliminate them from our world.   “Cat Obituary Farewell Eastern Cougar”  is about the heartbreak of extinction  and a reminder to care for all animals big and small.
