I am sharing some additional photos from the BlogPaws conference prior to returning to our regular programing. I will have at least one additional BlogPaws post when the boxes of swag, sent home via UPS, arrive. I brought a few toys home as birthday gifts for Calista Jo, but have not unpacked those as yet. Both the kitties’ dad and I won items from the Hauspanther Cat Style Lounge, which were sent home by UPS as well. One of those will be C.J.’s extra special birthday gift.


BlogPaws Conference 2016


The collage above features two rescues, cat Poe and kitten Gypsy from All About Animal Rescue of Arizona. That’s me in the upper right with the stylish and sophisticated Kate Benjamin, our host in her Hasupanther Cat Style Lounge. That’s the spot to see and learn about lots of popular and new cat enrichment products. Lower left is me again with one of the gorgeous kitties in attendance. I apologize that I have forgotten his name. In the bottom right are some of the bloggers and book authors, sporting our cat ears, at the CWA (Cat Writers Association) table. I’m in the back row to the left of the the lady with the yellow hair (The Island Cats‘ mom, Sue).


BlogPaws Conference 2016


In the upper left of this second collage are the two sphinx kitties, Lexi Liu (back) and Moshe Moshi, from Naked and Hungry. Upper right features Mom Ava, Christy Paws and me at the Evanger’s Pet Food booth. In the left center is the lovely and always best dressed Coco, the Couture Cat. Below that you’ll find me again giving kitten Samson a lap for a nap. Middle right I am getting woofie kisses (don’t rat me out to the Kitties Blue) and finally me with All About Animals Rescue, Ben.

When left to his own devices, Dad Tom went off on his own and took a bunch of woofie photos. Here is the most adorable Sinead (Welcome to the menagerie), our very well-behaved dinner companion for the Nose-to-Nose Awards Banquet.


Sinead at BlogPaws Conference 2016


In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing news and reviews about new products and affiliations for Kitties Blue. But tomorrow, Lily Olivia will return for Wordless Wednesday.

Hope you enjoyed way too many photos of me getting chummy with other cats and woofies at this year’s BlogPaws Conference.

The 2017 BlogPaws Conference will be held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, from May 18 to 20. Tickets are available now with Early Bird pricing in effect until July 1. Tom and I already have our tickets. Don’t forget to get yours!

TW is still up in the air about next year. Time is running out to make a decision. In the past Blogpaws’ campaigns helped to pay her way but now she doesn’t have that extra imcome, it will be hard.

Mom says she’s glad you took so many photos. She had intended to take lots but just kept forgetting. Maybe I had something to do with that.

Oh what fun! Looks like you had a ton of fun and I’ve heard so many good things about the conference this year other than there were LOTS more woofies than before. Glad you enjoyed yourselves and I bet you brought back a lot of goodies for the kitties too!

Hugs, Sammy

My human and I agreed to blog about BlogPaws in real time… but it was really hard work! We were up ’til all hours getting posts ready every night (at least we were in our usual time zone). I’m not going next year because the trip is too long for me, but my human says if she goes, she’s kind of relieved that she won’t have to blog in real time!
