Have you seen the Vine video app available for download in the Apple store? I just started hearing about it and then last week at BlogPaws, my Catster buddies were totally swinging from the Vine so I thought I'd give it a try. Now I'm totally hooked!
|Saffy gets ready for her premiere on Vine.|
Here are a couple that I made:
I know I'm just a beginner, but I'm having a ton of fun. If you're on Vine, follow me!! My username is ... Catladyland! And I'd love to see your silly Vine vids!

It's true! Catladyland won Best Humor Blog in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Social Media and Pet Blogging Awards!
My friend Amy took this photo of me on the big screen. I thought for sure writing a speech would jinx my win. Of course I had no speech prepared so I stood up there and blurted out something about kissing ferrets and then ran off stage.
My favorite part of BlogPaws is reconnecting with my favorite cat ladies. This year I was so proud to be in the company of some fabulous finalists in the awards. These ladies rock in a super-hard way. Fur realsies. How could you not want to totally smooch Deb from The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey, Robin from Covered in Cat Hair, Tamar from I Have Cat, me from ... this blog, JaneA from Paws and Effect and Debbie from Glogirly. YAY!!
|L-R: Deb, Robin, Tamar, me, JaneA and Debbie. FOXES!!|
Some of the Catster writers got to finally meet up with Janine and Lori from Catster.com, the online magazine to which we contribute. We ate way too much delicious food and by the time we left, I wished for some maternity pants. I am so in love with these ladies.

Today I'm forgoing the typical Friday Fanglish post to show you a couple of cute kitty babies I've met at BlogPaws, the annual pet blogging conference that's one of the highlights of my year.
This is Odilia, the little blind kitten my blogging friend Connie of the Tails From the Foster Kittens blog. She was so teeny and totally feisty! Cats really are badass -- even tiny ones with special needs.
And then I met Triscuit, another foster who we all loved on in one of the workshops. She was so docile and completely adorable.
There are definitely a TON more dogs here at this conference, and that makes sense. My cats could totally freak out if I carried them to a hotel in another state. But some cats are good travelers and I'm just glad to have made the acquaintance of these two cuties.
Oh, and the cherries jubilee over ice cream was divine last night.
Happy BlogPaws, everyone! And thank you to Purina for sponsoring my trip!

It's true, right? They do love a soft pile of warm laundry, but my cats are just as likely to rest their head on the edge of a cardboard box or sleep on top of a 24-pack of shrink-wrapped water bottles. I suppose if I were that tired all the time, comfort wouldn't be that big of a deal. Heck, I remember childhood sleepovers at friends' houses when I'd crash on top of a cheap Holly Hobbie sleeping bag on a hard floor.

This is how it goes down at my house: Saffy inhales her food and then stalks Phoebe's dish. I do my best to distract Saff, but she always winds up creeping around the corner somewhere, waiting until I'm not looking so she can descend upon poor Pheebs. Look how stalkerish she looks.
