Road Trip – Part 1 – Orange County Stopover

Whew! What a wild week. Check out my road trip! Here's the first installment of my trip to BlogPaws in Arizona with stopovers in Orange County.

Whew! What a wild week. I don’t even know where to start so I guess I’ll just start at the beginning!

Some of you probably know that mom wanted to take me to BlogPaws last year but she felt she didn’t get me out enough, then I had that awful experience with the woofies next door. She was worried that I would be too afraid with all the dogs around and boy, am I glad she made that decision after what I saw the past few days.

This year, we worked at it much more diligently. I started spending lots of time out in the yard once the weather got better and I really got into that. Our yard is totally fenced and mom was always out with me so she let me out without a leash! Woohoo! I didn’t even worry too much … Continue reading

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

Benefits of a Pet Water Fountain

Kitties don't have a strong drive to drink water which can lead to serious health problems. A pet water fountain can encourage them to drink more water.

I’ve been saying for the longest time that I want a water fountain. Ever since mom went to BlogPaws last year and came home telling me about all the cool fountains she saw, I’ve wanted one.

Kitties don't have a strong drive to drink water which can lead to serious health problems. A pet water fountain can encourage them to drink more water.I know how important hydration is for us kitties and how hard it is for some of us to drink enough water. We don’t have a problem at my house because we get most of our moisture from our raw food, but clean, fresh water is still so important. Getting kitties to drink … 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

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 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

The Birth of an Adventure Cat

Enjoying the ride around Petco in the shopping cart

As you may know, mom will be attending her second BlogPaws conference in June. Last year, even though she had planned to take me, she ended up going by herself. My harness training just didn’t go as planned!

For this year’s conference, she really wants me to go with her so she had planned to work diligently on my harness training and getting me out in public. So far, the weather has put a damper on that. It has been raining almost steadily since Christmas. Mom says rain won’t make me melt but she wants my trips out to be pleasant.

On Monday, mom got out the treats and I ran through my tricks a couple of times, so far sit, high five and up. Then the harness went on. No problem. We do this often.

I followed mom around for a while … Continue reading

My First Car Ride in Over a Year

Christy sleeping in leopard harness prepping for- My First Car Ride in Over a YearMom has really been trying to work with me to get me ready for the BlogPaws conference in June. I’ve been wearing my harness a lot but what I need to work on now is getting out of the house and around people. The problem is, it hasn’t stopped raining, and even snowing, in weeks. When we have one or two days without rain, mom has outdoor chores to do and then it starts raining again. Mom says we can’t complain though. After four years of drought, we need all the rain and snow we can get.

A couple of weeks ago, mom finally decided to take me out on a day … Continue reading
