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.
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.

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!
A 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!
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.
