Cat Style Lounge


 Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #106

With the help of Cooper Murphy and Astrid, I have completed the Friendly Fill-Ins. This is a blog hop currently being hosted by 15 And Meowing And Four-Legged Furballs (while Annie at McGuffy’s Reader is taking a blogging break.

They have a new badge to represent the current collab-oration. If you click on it, you will be transported to Four-Legged Furballs, where you can enter the link to your fill-ins post.


1. Cooper Murphy: It is nice to have a catio where we can spend our days watching birds and squirrels and napping.




2. Astrid: The best part of last week was finally venturing into the new cat bed from Dharma Dog/Karma Cat® that Mom won from the Cat Style Lounge at the BlogPaws Conference. It only took a month, but both Mau and I finally tried it out. I don’t know what we were waiting for.




3. Every summer, I complain about the heat. With the hot weather we’ve been having already this spring, I suspect I will bitch about it again this year.  


4. Once upon a time, I lived in California. In fact both Dad Tom and I were born and grew up there. This is the house I lived in from age six trough age 18. (My dad built that light post back in the mid 50s.)



I am also entering the Feline Friday blog hop at Comedy Plus.



Thankful Thursday

Wowzers, we sure do have a lot of thankfuls this week.

  • We were one of four first commenters on The Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. And we guessed the Teaser correctly; though, we were not first. Missed that by two minutes. We won these two cool badges.








  • Our humans came home a day earlier than planned from their trip to KCMO for BlogPaws Conference.
  • We saw and smelled swag bags full of goodies being taken into the living room when they arrived home.
  • Last night, Mom brought out the items she and Dad won from the Cat Style Lounge at BP.


Thankful for swag


Here are Astrid, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer checking out the goodies. The first is the karma cat® 100% pure wool pet bed. This is the Bouquet Cave design. Astrid is our cave cat, so we suspect she’ll be the first one to claim it as her own.

The second item is the Kritter Community portable and collapsible Lodge Cat House. It is  purrfect for outside and has stakes for securing it to the ground. Mom is hoping to take some of us out to the yard this summer while she is gardening. And the large (22″ H x 20″ W x 30″) size is great for travel. Mom’ would like to take Cooper Murphy to BlogPaws in Florida in 2019. He’s very sociable and always up in everyones’ business, so she thinks he might do well there.

Cat Style Lounge

The Cat Style Lounge at the BlogPaws Conference always displays the newest and best cat products on the market. And all items are given away to participants at the conclusion of the conference. The lovely Kate Benjamin (Hauspanther), who selects her favorite items for display in the lounge, usually oversees the lounge as well. Unfortunately she was not with us this year, as she is undergoing treatment for cancer. Kitties Blue as well as our mom and dad send prayers for a speedy recovery and thanks for making certain the 2018 Cat Style Lounge had terrific products and a great volunteer staff.

Next week we’ll be sharing photos of all the swag the humans brought home from the conference. And we’ll be announcing some giveaways. Keep checking in everyday so you don’t miss the opportunity to win some great products.

A Special Sunday Selfies Announcement

This upcoming Sunday is Mau’s wife Allie‘s birthday. In celebration, we’d like to suggest that you make your selfie in the form of a card for Allie. Of course, this is not a requirement to join the hop, but we know it would make Allie very happy to see all the greetings. We will be having a comment-a-thon in her honor as well. The charity Allie selects to receive the donation will be announced as soon as she lets us know.

Apology to Angel Sammy and Teddy

Once again we did not compose a poem for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday. We really like the photo Mom Pam selected as inspiration for this week, and we are going to try to convince Mom to write a poem about it to include on our Friendly Fill-Ins post.

Until tomorrow…

Purrs and paw-pats, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
