4 Reasons BlogPaws Made Me Cry

I have always enjoyed attending BlogPaws, and this year in Myrtle Beach, SC was no exception. Each conference has broadened my horizons, given me ideas to improve my blog and social media experiences, and has strengthened existing friendships and formed new ones. The Cat Writer's Association track has provided insight on writing skills and ideas for articles and posts, and this year I was a finalist in their annual Communications Contest in two categories. I was also officially named as treasurer for the association at the member breakfast.

This year BlogPaws touched me in a different way because there was a big focus on rescue and the bond between people and their pets. I try to make this a big part of my blog, and in a world where bloggers are supposed to “find their niche” and “solve their audience’s problems”, BlogPaws's focus on this gives new meaning to my work. Read on to see why I needed several tissues over the course of the weekend.

Throwback Thursday - My Towel Rack!

Hello and Happy Thursday! Today I'm going all the way back to a week after I moved in with Mommy and Lexy. Let me set the scene... when I first came home from the hospital, I was still sick and I had to be sequestered in the bathroom, which I called my "Executive Suite". One day Mommy came into my Executive Suite to check on me, and she couldn't find me. She was very scared, and couldn't imagine where I could have gone! She turned around and there I was, on the towel rack! That became my safe space for a while, and when Mommy put the towels away, she made sure my space was empty. How nice was that? 



I was still recovering when this picture was taken, so my eyes look a little funny.

Catnip Nation - A Documentary About Feral Cats and the People Who Take Care of Them

Cat Camp NYC, which took place this past March in Manhattan, turned out to be a very educational experience for me.  I was able to speak to people from all walks of the cat community, learning about their missions, values, and work. One of the people I had the pleasure of meeting was Tina Traster, the Producer and Director of the documentary film, Catnip Nation



When I was looking at the promotional materials for the film, I noticed they are located in Rockland County, NY where I was born and raised. This piqued my interest and made me very happy because many people don’t even know that Rockland County is on the map! I was so pleased to hear that a spotlight is being shone on the wonderful people whose tireless efforts improve the lives of homeless cats in my hometown. 

The film’s trailer brings me to tears.
