Levine’s work now being considered for CWA’s distinguished Muse™ Medallion Award.

This is the most rewarding part of my career – being able to improve pets’ lives through education – so it’s quite an honor to be recognized by the Cat Writers’ Association for my work.

A national pet lifestyle expert has been recognized for her feline-related work by the Cat Writers’ Association, Inc. (CWA).

Expert Kristen M. Levine, who is also the founder of pet marketing and PR agency Fetching Communications, won three Certificates of Excellence from the 2012 CWA Communications Contest. The two online articles and one broadcast she submitted for consideration won in two different awards categories:

  •     VI.2 – Broadcast, Audio – Any Format – Certificate of Excellence for Levine’s “Bring Out the Inner Kitty in Your Cat,” a broadcast that aired on her national WebTalk Radio program “Radio Beastro.”
  •     VII.3 – Online Article – Health & General Care – Certificates of Excellence for Levine’s articles “The Fat Cat’s Guide to Getting Fit” and “Go Green with Your Kitty Litter.”

Levine said she strives to help pet parents provide happy, healthy lifestyles for their cats, so she’s honored by the CWA’s recognition.

“Felines' needs are so different from their canine counterparts, so it's important to educate cat lovers about resources and solutions to give their cats the best lifestyle possible,” Levine, who is a member of CWA, said. “This is the most rewarding part of my career – being able to improve pets’ lives through education – so it’s quite an honor to be recognized by the Cat Writers’ Association for my work.”

Levine’s work is now being considered for the CWA’s distinguished Muse Medallion Awards, which will be presented during the 19th Annual CWA Conference, Nov. 1-3 in Los Angeles.
