Goodnewsforpets.com is once again sponsoring the CWA Human-Animal Bond Award. This award is presented for the entry that best reflects and promotes the strengthening of the human-animal bond, highlighting the bond between a cat and owner, as well as their relationship with their veterinarian as another direct caregiver.
“We are thrilled to once again sponsor this award, especially this year when the pandemic has proven how important the human-animal bond is to our lives. Best wishes to all entrants. We look forward to acknowledging the award winner, the award presentation and featuring the entry on Goodnewsforpets.com,” said Lea-Ann Germinder, Goodnewsforpets.com Editor and Publisher.

About the Cat Writers Association and Goodnewsforpets.com
The Cat Writers’ Association is a global cat-centric professional organization dedicated to excellence in written, visual and audio media. The association was the first media partner of Goodnewsforpets.com when the site was launched in 2000.
On Saturday, November 21, 1992, four “cat journalists” met at the Cat Fanciers Association Invitational Cat Show in Fort Worth, Texas. They included Cat Fancy magazine editor Debbie Phillips-Donaldson and circulations specialist Suzanne Stowe; Cat Fanciers Association public relations expert Michael Brim; and freelance pet writer Amy Shojai. All wanted to help get “good information” about cats out to the general public, and support writers dedicated to that effort. The Cat Writers’ Association, Inc. (CWA) was born that day and while writing remains the cornerstone of our organization, over the years we have evolved to embrace and embody so much more.
