Meow Meet Up 2019 - The Midwest's Premiere Cat Convention

I love attending cat conventions. There’s just something about being in a large space filled with cat lovers that makes my soul happy. I’ve been lucky to have been able to attend Cat Camp three times, as well as Catsbury Park and I’ve always enjoyed myself immensely (and I always come home with bags of goodies! I’m a sucker for cat-themed merchandise.) 

A group of cat blogging friends, some of my favorite friends in the world, decided we wanted to get together again so we’ve made plans to meet in Chicago to attend Meow Meet Up. When I was contacted by Lauren Meile, founder of The Catnip Times (a blog I absolutely love!) and Meow Meet Up to talk to my readers about the event, I was more than happy to oblige. I had a lovely conversation with her on the phone as we shared our passion for cats, rescue, and blogging. Her enthusiasm for the event was contagious! (Stay tuned till the end, because there’s a special ticket offer for Lola The Rescued Cat readers!)

Three Reasons Your Cat Needs Wet Food in Their Diet

This post is sponsored by Purina. We received coupons for free 12-packs of Fancy Feast for ourselves and a giveaway to discuss the importance of wet food in a cat's diet. Purina is not responsible for the contents of this post. Lola The Rescued Cat only shares information we feel will be of interest to our readers. 

Cat Writers’ 25th Anniversary Conference

Purina has been a sponsor and supporter of Cat Writers’ Association since its inception in 1992, so I was thrilled that not only would they be presenting at the 25th Anniversary Conference, but they would also have a booth with staff available to speak one-on-one with members.

Catnip Nation Wins Best Documentary!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you've most likely read the posts about the documentary film Catnip Nation. I met Tina Traster, Producer and Director of the film, at Cat Camp NYC in 2017. I had a very enjoyable conversation with Tina which led to her contributing not only updates about the film but educational, thought-provoking articles about feral cat communities as well.

Say Goodbye to Pet Odors With Pet House by One Fur All

I hate it when my house stinks. I don't like to admit it, but with two cats in a one bedroom apartment, it can happen. When company walks in the last thing I want them to think is "It smells like animals live here." I've tried many products, including room sprays and fabric fresheners, but they don't really eliminate pet odors, they just cover them up temporarily. I also worry about the effect the chemicals in these products may have on Lola nd Lexy.

I was happy to learn about the pet safe Pet House products by One Fur All.  Products that are safe for Lola and Lexy and will make my house smell good? My fingers were crossed and I hoped they worked!

A Shelter Cat Could Change Your Life - Adopt-A-Cat Month

Rescue and advocacy is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I've worked very hard since starting this blog in 2014 to be a voice for the voiceless to help save animals. June is Adopt-a-Cat Month, the perfect time to talk about adoption.
