BlogPaws 2010

7

Greetings furriends!!! Mommy had such a wonderful time at the BlogPaws Conference! She especially enjoyed getting to meet some of the other Mommies!

Like Panda Bear said yesterday, there were lots of woofies and a few kittehs in attendance! But mostly it was humans. That’s OK though, because these humans care very much about us animals and work hard to keep us happy and safe.

Our Mom met Mom Teri of Curlz and Swirlz

… along with Disco NoFurNo and Brighton in purrson!

Don’t you just love their Pink Catillac? I must speak with Mommy about getting us a stroller!

Mom also got to meet Flat Skeezix and The Food Lady from Skeezix’s Scratching Post!   The Food Lady also blogs on The Cat’s Meow, a Catster blog.  This photo shows our Mom, Mom Teri, Brighton, Flat Skeezix, Disco (inside the Pink Catillac), and The Food Lady.

Brighton and Flat Skeezix got to meet each other. Brighton checked out Flat Skeezix.

Flat Skeezix returned the favor.

Mom got to meet Perfectly Parker’s Mom, Helen! Mom sat with The Food Lady and Parker’s Mom at lunch. Mom said that they had a great time talking and laughing, and talking and laughing.

Mom got meet Mom Carol and Moshe of Meir Cats, Chats, and Fiber. They have a very interesting blog that Mommy had not seen before! Mom added it to our blogroll so that we can visit them.

Isn’t Moshe handsome? He is very photogenic!

A bunch of the Mommies took some group photos. In this photo is Mom Teri of Curlz and Swirlz, Mom Carol of Meir Cats, Chats, and Fiber, Mom Helen of Perfectly Parker, our Mom who is petting Flat Skeezix, Skeezix’s The Food Lady, and Mom Robyn of The Hotties (House of the (Mostly) Black Cats).

In this photo is Mom Teri of Curlz and Swirlz, Mom Jen of Mr. Tuck’s Neighborhood, Mom Helen of Perfectly Parker, Flat Skeezix, Skeezix’s The Food Lady, Baby Patches’ Momma Salina of Nip and Bones, and Mom Robyn of The Hotties (House of the (Mostly) Black Cats).

Well, we are clearly behind the times in posting about the 2010 BlogPaws Conference!  This is not due to lack of interest of excitement, more to Mom’s lack of energy after returning home.  Without further ado, we will be making several posts to tell you all about the great time Mom had.  Photos: BRAD SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY (the clear photos are taken by the official event phographer), and Mommy’s camera (the not so clear ones).  We are sure it will be obvious, but to be fair, we will let you know which is which.

The conference was held in the Columbus O-Hi-O Westin Hotel.  The event was very pet-friendly, so there were many woofies and a few kittehs in attendance.  None of us Bambinos attended.  Padre and Meerkat are too skittish, and do not like meeting new people, definitely not a conference full of new people.  Cookie and Caramel do not like going outside EVER.

Mom said that she thought about bringing me for about 1.5 seconds.  Darn!  I think I would have liked it, although it would have screwed up my napping schedule.  I really gotta paw it to the kittehs who attended the conference, namely:

Flat Skeezix of Skeezix’s Scratching Post,

and Disco NoFurNo and Brighton of Curlz and Swirlz. Don’t you just love their blinged-out stroller?

Mom said that the educational sessions were great, and the keynote speakers very apropos in their messages.  Over time, we Bambinos will fill you in on those details.

Tomorrow, Caramel will show you some photos of Mommy with our furriends’ Mommies!

And on Thursday, Cookie is competing in Kitty Fight Club, hosted by Misha!
