Greetings Furriends! Long time no blog! We have been having internet problems lately, but Mommy and Daddy hope that the new cable modem resolves that problem. We have been going through blogging withdrawal, especially given that the BlogPaws Conference was last week!
Mommy and Daddy had a great time at BlogPaws. They saw some furriends Mommy met last year like Carol 0f Coffee, Cats n’ Yarn and Teri of Curlz and Swirlz. Flat Panda Bear got created at the Flat Tyler session, and is featured in many photos.
Karen (AKA The Food Lady) was there too! LOVE the glasses!
Pictured below are Karen of MouseBreath (AKA The Food Lady), Mom, Nancy (Mr. R.W. Emerson’s Mommie), Flat Skeezix, Flat Mao, Flat Mr. R.W. Emerson, and Flat Panda Bear.
We love Brighton’s outfit! Teri’s shirt is really cool too!
Coco is a very pretty kitty!
Mommy and Daddy sat with the BlogPaws photographer, Brad Smith (left) for Saturday dinner. Daddy is wearing The Furry Bambinos shirt.
We Furry Bambinos stayed home, but Louisa the Foster Kitten went along. Here she is with Carol of Coffee, Cats n’ Yarn.
And the Very Handsome Moshe Moshi, one of Carol’s Naked Kidz from Coffee Cats n’ Yarn:
Louisa got to sample many laps during the conference! Louisa napped on Desiree’s lap in two different sessions!
Napping with Desiree again:
Louisa also got to be held by lots of friendly cat people. This is Rebecca, one of the BlogPaws staffers:
Claire from the Sheraton registration desk really enjoyed getting to meet Louisa.
Check out this little cutie! This is Snotface! He attended BlogPaws with his person, Stephanie.
Mom and Stephanie introduced Louisa the Foster Kitten and Snotface. Unfortunately, Louisa was not sure what to make of a ferret, and was not on her best behavior. We sincerely hope that Stephanie and Snotface were not offended.
Next, Louisa seems to be in a better mood, with Susan Getgood of Blog Her.
And here Louisa is pictured with one of the PetSmart representatives.
Mom and Dad met Caren Gittleman, of Cat Chat with Caren & Cody. Louisa enjoyed meeting Caren at the Flat Tyler workshop, where Flat Panda Bear was created, with the help of Bev Van Zant of My Flat Pet: The Adventures of Flat Tyler.
They also met Deborah Barnes, of Zee & Zoey’s Chronicle Connection blog, and author of the soon-to-be-published book “The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey”! Louisa enjoyed sitting in Deb’s lap, too.
On Sunday morning, Mom, Dad, and Flat Panda Bear chatted with Guido the Italian Cat’s Mom Judi, Dusty Rainbolt (VP Media & Communications for Adopt A Shelter and author of Cat Wrangling Made Easy, Kittens for Dummies, and others), and Janea Kelley, Webmaster of Paws and Effect.
More about BlogPaws next time! And catching up reading and commenting, too!
Sky and Sunny’s First Birthday
Hello Furriends! First, a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have commented on our Birthday Post! We appreciate your kind words and for helping us to celebrate our first birthday and comment-a-thon to benefit the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL)! We want to extend Very Special Thanks to Momo, to Asta, to Khyra, and to The Cat Blogosphere who helped to spread the word about our birthday. You really rounded up furriends who showed their support! Thanks to all of you who commented, attended the party, and brought nip and cake!
We started our Birthday by hunting together.
Sunny patted this little guy a few times to see what he would do.
He just kept inching his way across the carpet while we watched.
He took so long to get anywhere that we sat down and got comfortable.
Mommy picked up our inchworm prey friend and let him loose outside. Bye, Birthday Bug! (Click to biggify.)
Next, we shared some cereal milk from Mommy’s cereal dish.
Even Panda Bear enjoyed some cereal milk.
Panda Bear is the one who taught us about cereal milk!
I had some crunchies after the milk.
Our big birthday present was for dinner: Real Live Fresh Dead Chicken Boobs!
Daddy cut it up for us to share with the other Furry Bambinos.
Sunny says, “Hurry, cut faster!”
I said, “I’m hungry!”
Finally, all cut up!
Mmm mmm good!!
Yum yum yum!
Panda Bear enjoyed the RLFDCB!
So did Padre!
Miss Floofs (Caramel) sneaked some RLFDCB from my dish while Mommy was serving …
So, Sunny and I ate the leftovers from Caramel’s and Cookie’s dishes!
Mommy will be making a donation of approximately $100 to the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL). In addition, Mommy works for a company that matches donations, so that means the Cleveland APL will get $200 total!!! The Cleveland APL is a nonprofit humane society located in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. In addition to providing shelter to cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies waiting to be adopted, the Cleveland APL also provides low cost spay and neuter services, as well as sponsoring a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program for feral cats in the Cleveland area. It is where most PAWS kitties, including us, have their ladygardenectomy or hoohaectomy surgery done.
Thank you efurryone!!!
