As promised, I have a couple more photos my human took at BlogPaws. I am highly annoyed that she didn't take more. She got to meet several of your moms and where are the photos?? She didn't have the camera with her half the time...such a moron!
Here is my human holding Flat Skeezix. Seriously, she is a such a dork, how is it that she gets to meet Flat Skeezix and I don't?
She had lunch with Baby Patches' mom and they talked all about the blogs and us kitties too of course! Then, on Saturday night, she hung out at the bar until late at night talking to the Mewmie from FurryDance! Such a great time! She hopes to see all of you at BlogPaws 2011!!
My human is back from BlogPaws! She told me all about it and it sounds absolutely amazing. I demanded to go purrsonally next year. She said we'll see. Apparently, I need to learn how to walk on the leash and not hide from new people...I'll try to work on that...
Jen got to meet some of my furriends and some moms too! She met Brighton and Disco from FurryDance. She was so excited to meet them!
Check out their Pink Catillac! How cool is that!
Everybody wanted to pet Brighton! Disco had hopped back up in the Pink Catillac...
Disco and Brighton (and their Mewmie Teri) sent me a swag bag. Thanks guys! You rock!
As you can see, I couldn't wait to check it out!
Jen has some photos of the awesome cat blogger moms she met, but we will share those tomorrow...they deserve their own post!
BlogPaws 2010 sounds like it was so much fun. There were fantastic speakers and seminars (Jen actually spoke at one...can you imagine...my human talking in front of people? She promised that she did not embarrass me and that she did show everyone a handsome, mancatly photo of me!) I told my human that now she is armed with knowledge on how to make my blog better that I'm expecting her to step it up a notch...no more of this slacking nonsense!
So stay tuned tomorrow when we post about all the humans that we (I mean Jen, because I wasn't allowed to go) met at the conference!
My human is heading to BlogPaws bright and early tomorrow morning (YAY!!) I'm usually upset when she leaves, but this is for a good reason, so I will allow it. Jen will be doing double duty there as a blogger and also for work. She will be speaking on a panel about product reviews (she's a little nervous) and will also be helping with the table for her client Del Monte...they are a sponsor. So if your human is going to BlogPaws too, be sure to tell them to stop by and say hello! I'll make sure that she files a full report when she gets back!
My humans bought me a new carrier. My old one was bulky and plastic. Not a good fit for a mancat like me. Especially considering Jen couldn't carry me in it without banging it into a wall or something. I did not like that. It was time for a change.
I inspected all the corners. I had to make sure it was sturdy.
The carrier is an interesting shape. It could double as a tent, but my humans aren't smart enough to think of that.
It does smell nice. It has that new carrier smell. Ahhh...mine, all mine.
It's nice to rub the face up against.
I personally think I should be carried around on a throne all the time, but this will do for now. It's a start...
I just read the most horrible story in my local newspaper. State officials in New Jersey are considering banning TNR in local communities. Instead, the New Jersey Fish and Game Council wants to make it legal to HUNT feral cats. That's right, the politicians in this upstanding state I live in, want to give hunters the right to shoot cats. I'm so angry about this I can barely speak. The thought of these poor cats, who are already forced to live their lives in the elements, being shot just for fun breaks my heart. Here is a quote from the story:
Jeannette Vreeland, acting chair of the Fish and Game Council, asked in 2007 if feral cats could be added to the list of animals that could be hunted, according to council meeting minutes. This week she defended the 2007 resolution.
"When a cat is left to roam outside the house it becomes a character who kills birds and small mammals -- rabbits, chipmunks,'' she said on Thursday. "It's really not a natural, native animal. They are exotic and not meant to be outdoors.''
The Humane Society, ASPCA and several other animal welfare organizations have sent letters condemning this proposal, but I'm afraid it won't be enough. The Fish and Game Council has their next meeting on April 13th. I'm asking that you all help me by emailing or writing to the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife to let them know that this proposal in unacceptable. The contact information is below. N.J.

It's been a crazy few weeks over at my neighborhood. My human always works late hours, but suddenly, she was working very late hours...she was up and out early and not home until very late. A big project she said. When she was home, I only wanted to cuddle with her. Then suddenly, she packed a bag and was off to this place...
Thankfully, it was a quick trip. She left late Monday evening and was back in Jersey on Wednesday morning! She said it was very exhausting and all she wanted to do was sleep. Back to work that same day though!
Then there was a cold...too much work makes my human sick, I think. Now, it appears that things are returning to normal. I hope at least! I think I'll have a little weed to celebrate...
I'm honored to be hosting a Cat-O-Lympic Event here in my Neighborhood! The one that I'm hosting is my personal favorite -- Late Night Human Wakeup. It's a sport that takes skills, bravery and purrsistance. Over the next few days I'm looking for the world's best competitors. Sometimes it's difficult to capture those late night antics on film, so I'll accept stories as well. Share your stories or pictures either on your blog (be sure to send me the link) or in the comments.
The competition is sure to be fierce as the cats of the cat blogosphere are the smartest and most skilled felines in the world. Good luck to all!
This is a photo of some of my late night antics. Last night, I crawled under the covers and waited. When my human went to bed she thought I was just sleeping under there. I waited until the very moment she began to drift off and then I attacked her feet!
