Two Cats Tuesday: Moo Nipped Out and BlogPaws Pics

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Whew, am I pooped after this weekend at BlogPaws. I had an amazing time, met some amazing people and am super excited to do some amazing stuff with them!

If you didn't know, one of the huge perks of attending a cool conference like this is all the fun swag you get -- I came home with loads of toys and treats for Pimp and Moo (and some fun stuff for me, too!).

The first toy I gave Moo was this apparently super niptacular Fat Cat Zoom Stuffer toy. It's like a stuffed cat with a diaper on... and you put this pawsome nip packet in the "diaper" pocket. And let me tell you... Moo was ALL NIPPED OUT.


That's one crazy kitty! He was twitchin' and spinnin' (and I clearly lost track of which way was up with the camera, but no matter, right?).

By far, one of the most fun parts of BlogPaws was meeting all the humans behind my kitty and doggie friends. When I first walked into the hotel, I immediately recognized CosmoHavanese... but who was that lady attached to the other end of his leash?!? Oh! It was his mom!

I got a smooch from Cosmo! Such a ladies man...

You know their pets, but do you know them? This is @CosmoHavanese's mom, @BabyPatches' momma, @frugaldougal's staff, @BrewskieButt's mom @BZTAT and me (I'm @PimpTheCat's mom, of course.).

Me and Lynn, @frugaldougal's mom. I can see where he gets his fabulous personality from, mai pals...

And this is me and Salina, @BabyPatches momma and the fabulous woman behind NipandBones.com! Love her!

I wish I had taken more pictures, but I was so busy having too much fun. Next year, I'll be a better camera woman for sure!

Now for some good stuff: During the session I was a speaker for called "Be the Change," we decided as a huge group to all work together to raise some money for someone in the group's favorite shelter.

We put everyone's name in a basket (You all should have been there while I was trying to track down a basket in the hotel! Hehe.), and the person's name we chose got to pick the shelter that our Be the Change challenge got to benefit. It's Pets Without Parents in Columbus, Ohio!

Basically we are challenging everyone to post a blog on Friday to help raise money for Pets Without Parents (I'll post a link to the Firstgiving donation widget soon!) and we're also going to do a mini #blogpawty on Twitter (probably Wednesday night... stay tuned!).

More info to follow. I'd love all the Cuteheads to help out and help make the challenge we came up with a huge success. Our goal is $500, and I know we can do it if we work together!

  12. Binga tried to steal MY Zoom Stuffer before my human even had a chance to take it out of the package! But my favorite toy was - your pen! I sent it flying ALL over the living room!

    My human said she really enjoyed meeting you, and wishes you could have gone to the gym with her too - it was very nice for a hotel gym!
