Cat Writers’ Association could not survive as a purely volunteer organization with rock-bottom membership fees and high-value services without the monetary support of sponsors. Throughout the years, these sponsors have recognized the importance of our work, and with their assistance we’ve been able to continue our programs, support our members, and celebrate cats with outstanding information provided by our members.

We could never have come so far so quickly, or lasted for two decades, were it not for the support of sponsors. Some supported us early and moved on, others came late and stayed, and ALL are appreciated — most especially those who have been with us through furry thick and thin and are STILL with us today.

The “top cats” in the sponsorship arena go to two PAW-some organizations. The Cat Fanciers Association witnessed CWA’s birth and has been with us since the very beginning.

And Nestle Purina — when asked to sponsor our first conference and contest, Purina said yes not once, not twice, but multiple times — and has continued to support us for EVERY conference and contest we’ve ever held!

Thank you to THE dedicated sponsors of our

2014 Contest & Conference!
