Stroller Selfies

Mom has been busy getting ready for our trip to BlogPaws. I spend most of my time watching from my stroller where I took today's stroller selfies. #TrippinWithChristy

017Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve meowed at you all here so I hope you’ve been following me on social media. If you have, you know that mom has been crazy busy getting ready for our trip to the BlogPaws pet blogging conference in Phoenix. Who knew there would be so much to do! Just watching mom makes me tired.

Since I have such a sensitive tummy, one of the things mom did was can some meat for me to take on the trip. I have pork and beef. She mixed up dry supplements that she’ll add to each meal. She just hasn’t found a canned food that I can eat without getting diarrhea. That’s why mom Continue reading

BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards — I’m a Finalist!

Two level sleeping - BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards finalist

Oh my cat, everyone! This is definitely not a post I expected to be writing. I am so excited to announce that one of the photos on my blog has been selected as a finalist in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards. The winners will be announced at the awards banquet at the BlogPaws Pet Bloggers Conference in June.

I was going to go to BlogPaws last year until I had a bad experience with a woofie. Mom was concerned that BlogPaws would be too much for me so, instead, she took a flat me. I’ve been planning to go this year, so being nominated for the award makes it all the more exciting. There are three other great photos in my category, including my friends at Glogirly, and I am so honored to be among them.

Here is my photo … Continue reading

Spring Adventure

It has been warm and sunny here and the doors and windows have been open a lot. Mom says that means spring is here. She has been working outside a little, getting the herb garden cleaned up and starting to re-pot the potted plants that survived the winter. She cleaned off the deck, put away the chair covers and brought out the cushions. She puttered around for a long time, rearranging furniture and plants.

We watched the birds on the garage roof from the dining room window and door. They weren’t deterred from gathering the seeds dropped by the big tree by mom’s bustling around.

Regarding My Absence

Pensive Christy -- thinking about what has been going on during my absence

Good morning my dear friends and furiends! I haven’t been around much lately and I feel like a terrible furiend, but my typist has been very busy. She even told me she has had to rethink things about my blog. You see, when we started this blog, mom was recovering from a serious illness and needed something to lighten things up. After we moved here and she started feeling better, she knew it was time to start thinking about making some money to supplement her retirement income. She learned about monetizing a blog and we tried to do that with mine but it just isn’t growing very much and I don’t have enough readers to make it happen. I have a lot of followers on social media but most of them just don’t visit my blog.

I Couldn’t Fool You — More Car Time

Christy sitting by carrier looking out the window - I Couldn't Fool You -- More Car Time

Christy close up in the car getting more car time in prep for her tripI teased you a little yesterday with my selfies but it really wasn’t that hard to guess where I was. Most of you figured out that I was getting more car time in preparation for my trip to the BlogPaws conference in June. Mom had errands and it was a beautiful, sunny day — purrfect for a family outing. Well, not the whole family.

As you may remember, I haven’t been that happy riding in the car. Mom thought maybe it was the carrier I didn’t like so she had decided to try the larger carrier … Continue reading

We Are Bummed

Christy snoozing in sun puddle

Echo, Ocean and I are a little bummed today. For the past week or so we have had the most pawsome weather. It was glorious! If you follow me, you may have heard me mention just a time or two about how much it has been raining — over six weeks with only a day or two off here and there and they were still gray and gloomy. For those few days, though, the sun was shining and we had sun puddles in two of our windows.

All is Forgiven, Mom

Adopt Flower Puss -- A-Pal Humane SocietyToday is the day I would normally tell you about a wonderful kitty available for adoption through A-PAL Humane Society; however, when mom went to the Feed Barn yesterday to photo the kitties, there was only one there! What pawsome news, right? Well, there is a bit of a down side to the good news. The bad news is that the one lonely kitty who was there was Flower Puss. I told you about her a couple of weeks ago and she is still looking for her purrfect forever family. So, I would really appreciate it if you would click on her story and … Continue reading
