Road Trip – Part 2 – BlogPaws

Everyone said I handled the busy BlogPaws 2016 conference really well. Keep reading to see who I met and my perspective on it.

When last I left you, in Road Trip – Part 1, it was shortly after 6 am on Wednesday and we were on the road to Chandler, Arizona, and BlogPaws 2016.

I sang mom a tune or two when we first started but then got tired and just hung out. I tried to nap but it just didn’t seem to happen. So many strange noises outside and the motion of the car did NOT lull me to sleep.

Mom only made two quick stops along the way so we arrived at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler before noon. At first, mom thought she was going the wrong way. The hotel is down a narrow, two lane road kind of out in the middle of nowhere, or so it seemed.

Check in was a breeze and we … Continue reading

Mom Finally Got it Right!

How we help mom get more exercise

As you may recall, mom doesn’t make the best choices when it comes to bringing gifts to us when she goes places. When she went to a big craft show in Sacramento she brought me a harness and when she went to her first cat show to see my pal Summer, she brought me a pooper scooper. I wasn’t too thrilled with these things, even if they were purple.Help mom Echo

Last weekend, she went to another cat show to see Summer … Continue reading

My First Car Ride in Over a Year

Christy in her carrier

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

Caturday Art: May the Furs be with You

Mom hasn’t gotten to see the new Star Wars movie yet but, believe me, she will. She is older than dirt and stood in a long line to see the original at the theater — and she’s seen it many times! The only reason she hasn’t seen the new one yet is that the theaters where it is playing are not very close and the holidays have prevented planning an excursion to the big city.

Mom doesn’t buy me many new toys because I have so many, but on her last trip to the pet store, she had to get me THIS!

May the furs be with youNow, I ask you, does it look like I’m enjoying this? Well, I love my mom so I try to … Continue reading

Our Secret Paws Finally Revealed

Happy Monday my friends! I hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas. I know we did.

On Christmas Day, mom finally let us open our Secret Paws box. We were so excited to find out it came from our friends Gus, Jaq, Pearl and their human mom Jenny from As the World Purrs. Thank you so much!

First, of course, someone had to inspect the box and its wrapped contents. I let Ocean have that honor.

Our Secret Paws Finally Revealed -- Ocean in boxOnce everything was out, mom wanted to take pictures with the packages. See the cute little bags that things are in? Mom thought that was a really clever wrapping idea. We each had our own bag with our name on … Continue reading

What IS that thing?

What is that thing? - We won a FroliCat Flik

Early last week, a package arrived at our door. Mom brought it in and opened it up. We were about to check out the box when she pulled out another, smaller box. We gave the bigger box a cursory inspection then came back to check out the smaller box.

Mom opened the second box and out came a big, round, white object. While mom went out to the garage for something, we checked it out but it didn’t smell like anything so we weren’t impressed. Mom came back with some things, batteries she said, that she put inside the white thing then set it on the floor and flicked a switch.

Oh, my cat! It started making noise and a string kept disappearing inside and jumping back out.

Friday Follow-up — Catification and Giveaways

My prize package from 15andmeowing

The modifications to our cat tree continue. Yesterday, mom bought carpeting for the new shelf and a fancy electric staple gun to attach it. She tried the regular staple guns but decided her old, arthritic hands just aren’t strong enough for them. The men helping her at the store said even their hands get tired with the regular ones if there are a lot of staples and she will need to do a lot. The carpet cost $3. The staple gun to put it on cost $30. Hmmm…

15andmeowing toys 161_2222A while back, I told you about a pawsome prize I won from 15andmeowing. Some of you wondered if Echo ever got to play with the toys after Ocean put the bitey on him. Echo politely waited until Ocean … Continue reading
