BlogPaws West: A Tail to Remember

This morning I am getting ready to leave Denver and the BlogPaws West conference.  It was fun, informative, and inspirational! I'm looking forward to getting home, virtually connecting with the people I met, and utilizing some of the tools I learned.

I did not win the Pettie for Best Cat Blog, but my friend Sparkle did.  I was so happy for her and her human!  I know it sounds trite, but I was thrilled to be a finalist among these very popular and established blogs -- I look up to every one of them!

Although BlogPaws West was an experience I will not soon forget, I am looking forward to getting home to my 2-legged and 4-legged family. Will my cats be happy to see me or will they shun me for a day or two?  I'm thinking the former -- I do have cat swag, after all...

Here are a couple of my favorite memories from the conference!

Kyla Duffy's aerial work on opening night -- a performance art message against puppy mills.  Beautiful!
Friends!  Janiss from Sparkle, the Designer Cat and Stacy from Trupanion -- out for a night on the town!
Finally meeting my friend Janea from Paws and Effect!
Getting to see lots of pets, including Snotface the Ferret!  Oh, and I met Stephanie too!
Informative sessions like this one for Lijit -- can't wait to use this on my blog!
The paws were all over it!
Birthday-Cake-flavored good, I enjoyed it two nights in a row!
Contributing to the artist BZTAT's mural, which included participants' heartfelt personal thoughts on animals.
Watching the Be the Change panel was inspirational beyond belief! 
I am the change for animals!  Excited to get home and create some action!
Did I mention the gelato?


  1. I am so delighted that you had such a good time. Thanks for the recap, I enjoyed it!

  2. Thanks for sharing your photos and experience at Blog Paws! My Mommeh wishes she could have gone, so it is great for us to get to see what went on!

  3. My human says she had a blast meeting and hanging out with you! Although I am a little annoyed she did not bring home any gelato.
