Kitties Blue

Mom and Kate, sporting their cat ears.

Cat Style Lounge 

We kitties barely finished cleaning up the house before our humans got home from the BlogPaws Conference on Sunday evening. We were happy to have them home but sorry to see our five-day nip and treat party come to an end. Well, that was the case right up until the moment the swag bags started piling up and the most magnificent cat tower we’d ever seen came through the front door.

One of the best things about the BlogPaws Conference, according to our mom, is the Cat Style Lounge. It is packed with all the newest products available for kitties. And it is all provided by one of mom’s very favorite people, Kate Benjamin, of Hauspanther. At the conclusion of the Conference Kate gives away every item in the Lounge.

Mom and Dad have brought home some cool “goodies” previously, but this year they hit the jackpot. Check us out enjoying the Sauder Natural Sphere Cat Tower featuring a banana leaf sphere perched on top of a three-legged base standing 44″ tall.


Kitties inspect new tower.

Cooper Murphy was the first to check out the sphere as Mau looked on from the lower platform.

Cooper Murphy shows the other kitties how to get in and out of tower.

Mau is second of the kitties to investigate the tower sphere.

Astrid finds the sphere quite comfy.




The sphere has both a front and a top opening and a washable cushion on the inside, making it the purrfect spot for napping. One leg is wrapped with sisal for scratching and the raised bottom platform is carpeted for lounging. If you think this looks like something you’d enjoy, you can find it at Amazon.

Kate told Mom that we’d probably need another platform to use as a step up into the sphere. But the three of us who have been checking it out have leapt right up from the floor. Easy Peasy!

We are anxious to see what else Mom and Dad brought home, but we know nothing can beat this. “Thank you, Kate, for this most amazing prize. You are the cat’s meow!”

Mom will be sharing a variety of photos from the BlogPaws Conference tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.

Such a cool cat tower!!! You kitties sure are lucky! We’ve been enjoying our Cat Style Lounge Prizes too. Caster really likes the tall standing scratcher we got, and Sophie really likes the sphere one (which is perfect for her, since she has a hard time with the tall scratchers). Anyway, our mom says that she had a great time hanging out with your mom and dad and she can’t wait to see them again. She also says she can’t wait to come visit you all in Virginia sometime too! 😉
Sampy sends 45098237409582734 kisses to Astrid, and we all send lots of love!

It meant so much to me to be able to talk to you and get to know you at the Conference. When I saw Cooper Murphy in the ball, I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself, “Of course he’d be first!” Mau was patient – I give him that. But I love that last picture of Astrid … she might just own it now 🙂 I heard Kate asking around for people who drove so she could get rid of the bigger stuff … maybe I’ll get lucky next year with the conference in KC.
