The internet loves cats, we all know that, a few quick searches of Google will confirm that there are more cat websites in the world there are ATMs (I made that “fact” up but it could be true right?).
As a relatively new player in the cat blogging game we want to do more than help people just track their cats, we also want to help people keep tabs on the very best that the cat blogging world has to offer. In doing so we are also helping to do our bit to build the online cat blog community by connecting with leading cat blogs and pointing cat lovers in the direction of other great Independent Cat Blogs.
Consequently we have put together this list of our Top 30 Independent Cat Blogs from around the web and have also took the liberty of putting together a squiffy new badge for any of the privileged sites below to feature on their own site to both show off and help further build the online cat community.
