I was disappointed that there weren’t more kitties at BlogPaws. Teri from Curlz and Swirlz brought Coco, Brighton and Disco, and another blogger brought her three Sphinxes who also dress up. Besides those six, I met two kittens Triscuit and Odilia, but I didn’t see any others. I understand that most cats aren’t very enthusiastic about traveling, so I was excited to meet the ones who did attend.,
Coco, Brighton, Disco and the Sphinxes were great fun, but unfortunately I didn’t get many pictures of them. Odilia’s foster mom, Connie from Tails From the Foster Kitties, didn’t want her to get overly excited because she is a special needs kitten, so I didn’t have very many opportunities to cuddle with her, but Triscuit was a excellent conference kitty, and she went practically everywhere with her foster mom Jeanne from Random Felines.
I have a lot of pictures of Triscuit since I got to kitten sit for her at dinner one night. She slept almost the entire conference except for when she smelled the turkey that was for dinner, and then she tried to catapult herself into her mom’s plate. Since I was finished with my food, I volunteered to hold her, and after convincing her that I didn’t have any more turkey, she fell asleep again.
In addition to the kitties, there were several ferrets and guinea pigs at BlogPaws. I met several of them, but I actually got pictures of Snotface. He’s a pretty cool ferret, and since I’ve never met many ferrets, I really enjoyed spending time with him. Many of the cat bloggers adopted the ferrets as part of our own group — after all they are poleCATS!
Maybe next year, one of my kitties will concede to go with me. Until then, I’ll share a few pictures of those who were there.
