BlogPaws Pictures, Swag and Giveaway!

The shirts the Mama wore.

Sophie here! The Human Lady Mama returned from the BlogPaws conference on Sunday, after being away for about one year. (Yeah, I’m pretty sure it was one year in kitty time.) I hid in the closet when she came back, though. That dog they call Eddie went ballistic downstairs, so I got a little scared and wouldn’t come out right away.

But look at how brave Dexter and Olive were! They wanted to see all of the goodies that the Mama brought back. And it sure was a lot! So many goodies that the Mama is giving some to one lucky reader and donating the rest to a rescue duo that she really admires.

This is Olive enjoying some catnip that the Mama got from Savage Cat Food.

Pictures!

Before we get into the giveaway, let me show you some of the pictures that the Mama snapped at this conference thingy, while we happily stayed at home with the Pops.

Fellow Bloggers

One last thing before the giveaway. The Mama wanted me to tell you how wonderful it was to meet so many of her fellow bloggers. To her, it was the best part of the conference. She would like to say thank you to Paula at Sweet Purrfections, Dawn at Lola the Rescued Cat, Sue at The Island Cats, and Debbie at Glogirly for the gifts and toys. And to Janet at The Cat on My Head and Emily at Kitty Cat Chronicles for the cookie!

2016-06-30_BlogPaws19A very special thank you to Anita at Feline Opines for creating and bringing the Oliver and Olive buttons! The Mama still has plenty to give out, so please let her know if you want one. She has a running list and will be sending them out soon.

The Mama is also looking forward to collaborating with Linda from Savannah’s Paw Tracks. They attended a session together and are excited to spread the rescuing word!

The Mama also wants to say thank you for all of the N2N support and well-wishes she received from everyone. She claims the right people won Best Cause Blog (Kristin at The Daily Pip) and Best New Pet Blog (Belinda at Bodie on the Road) – and the best part is that the Mama counts Kristin and Belinda as her friends and can’t wait to see what else these two wonderful bloggers have in store!

Giveaway

The Mama has selected a handful of toys and items to send to one lucky reader’s cats. To enter the giveaway, leave a blog comment below by noon Pacific on Friday, July 8, 2016 for your chance to win. One winner will be chosen via Random.org. U.S. entries only. If you are an international entrant, you can choose a U.S. friend or rescue/shelter to have the items sent to. This is not a sponsored giveaway. (If you’d like to comment but not be entered in the giveaway, just let the Mama know in your comment and she’ll exclude you.)

That’s all folks!

Well, I think that’s about it! The Mama is pretty sure she will go to the BlogPaws 2017 conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and already bought her ticket. She can’t wait to see you all again and hopefully meet some new faces that she missed this time.

And now, I leave you with a picture of ME! This is me hanging out with the Pops while the Mama was away.

  1. Thank you for the giveaway, we love reading your blog even without the chance to win something. But, if I do win, please send to The Zoo. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. Oh what a wonderful time your Mom had! Love all her photos and so happy to hear she and Miss Linda from Savvy’s blog are going to work on something together. One day my Mom is going to try to go to the conference because she knows so many pet bloggers and it would be fun to meet everybody………..me? I prefer to be home napping.

    Hugs, Sammy

  3. We lost our senior Maine Coon, Koneko, in February, leaving us with just Moko and Arata for the cats. I’m wanting to adopt another cat and will hopefully be bringing one home very soon. I’d love to be able to win this so all three cats would have plenty of goodies to keep them happy – and hopefully even help the new cat transition into the family.

  4. So glad you had such a good time! After all the enthusiasm, I actually checked out flights to Myrtle Beach. Can you believe it?? Our Canadian (meaning I don’t qualify for the giveaway) carriers only seem to go there in the winter???? There were a couple of US airlines that seemed to go from Toronto but they were really expensive. :-( I may check again later — could be it’s just too early.

  5. It sounds and looks like it was an amazing conference. I love the photos and think you should definitely win for all time cutest handouts and t-shirts and I am sure Dexter, Olive and Sophie agree! Pinky has been called a mouse, a rat and last week, a fruit bat – but since she isn’t a cat, we won’t enter the contest. We wish good luck to everyone who has! It’s all so exciting!

  6. Love your blog and following you on Catastic and IG! What you do is amazing, increasing awareness! So happy you had a great time and look forward to all the cool stuff you learned! Thank you!!!

  7. Great pics! so glad your human had a good time and glad she kept Savvy’s Mom L company. I love the shirt. Every time TW goes the shirts stink. She hopes she could score one. Sophie is really nipped out in that video.

  8. What a grand time your mom had visiting with the other bloggers. Still think she has the bestest new blog but I haven’t read the other one. Mom would love to go to BlogPaws even in Myrtle Beach but is afraid to say she’ll go in case something happens and she can’t go. There are so many fun peeps she’d like to see. Yes, we could use some swag because we are poor kitties and have no toys…..alright, I exaggerated a tad. We have a friend in the States the goodies can be sent to if we win.

  9. I’m glad your Mom had a good time. I enjoyed meeting her and walking 2.5 times on the red carpet with her; the whole conference was so much better knowing she was there. And I’m glad that you finally forgave her for leaving you for a few days (even if it felt like years). I have more than enough goodies already … no giveaway entry.

  10. It was great to meet you! Fantastic pics! I still need to go through all that swag and see what to keep and what I can pass on. I bought my ticket for next year, too! Though I’m not certain I can make it yet.

  11. We’re so happy that you all had such a wonderful time at BP. It really cheered us up to read all about it :) I think I am going to follow Olive’s example and roll myself into some nip too :D Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

  12. I enjoy reading your posts so much & this one was equally as wonderful seeing a bit of the conference. Thank you for sharing your swag – the babies are quite excited!! ❤️

  13. I’m glad you enjoyed the conference. I’ve always wondered if BlogPaws was worth the effort – so it’s nice to read about an attendee’s experience.
    GREAT pics!

  14. Meeting you was a highlight for me and I’m so glad you came!! The swag was awesome – since we already have some, please don’t enter us in the giveaway! Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey kitties

  15. Great post. Loved the video of Olive enjoying the nip. That’s just how we like to do it. Mom was so happy to finally have the opportunity to meet Mom Rachel at BP. She wishes it could have been earlier in the conference. She and Dad have already bought their tickets as well for next year. They’ll be able to drive, and Mom is hoping to train C.J. so she can bring her. We are still waiting for our goodies to arrive. Mom will give some to our cat sitter for her kitty and send some to Mau’s girlfriend and Lisbeth’s boyfriend. But even with that, we will have plenty, so please do not enter us in your giveaway. Keep up the good work with the blog. It’s a great one. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  16. Great roundup! We are glad you had such a wonderful time at BlogPaws. We’ll get back there one of these years, and look forward to hanging out in person when we do! :)
