Blog Paws 2015

Sorry we have been hit and miss on the blogging for a few days. The mom has the thumbs and she was at Blog Paws. There were so many changes to her schedule, we weren't sure what plan she was on when she left, but she ended up leaving on Tuesday afternoon and coming back on Sunday. She said the drive down wasn't too bad except for a few spots of terrible down-pouring rain. She said the drive home was terrible....she had to stop a couple of times to get out of the car cause she was tired.

Mom took Salsa, Queso and Taquito with her, leaving Margarita, Blanco and Tostada here. Other than some #ScreamingQueso on the way down and back, the kittens were great.
Mom had to tell Salsa his adoring fans hadn't arrived yet

They got up to the hotel room first thing and mom set their stuff up in the bathroom and shut the door while she unpacked. She said when she opened the bathroom door, the boys came charging out and directly into the mirrored glass closet doors. Apparently not all hotel rooms are as big as they appear.

Mom went to a special event on Wednesday (she will blog about that later in the week). While she was there, her phone went off and the pet sitter sent a text asking if mom had taken Daiquiri to the event. Ummmm - no. After a few back and forth moments and head banging by the mom, Daiquiri was found under a blanket under Junior under the sofa cover. Argh!!!! Mom was afraid something was wrong as Daiquiri was very social with the pet sitter the last time mom went out of town, but Daiquiri seemed fine when mom got home.

Mom was rooming with Miss Julie from Sometimes, Cats Herd You and they had a great time. Mom says the best part of Blog Paws is getting to see her fellow blogger friends (she would say cat ladies, but she is friends with some dog people and even a lady that owns a ferret).

She missed the sessions on Tuesday.....she took a trip with Miss Teri from Curlz and Swirlz and Miss Amy from Sebastian the Sensitive Soul and they all got new ink. Yep - mom added to her cattoo collection with a paw print on her left arm near the other two tattoos.

Miss Julie's laptop was a big hit with all three kittens. She finally had to start moving the screen to a blank page to keep from posting weird things on the internet.

Of course the kittens had to make sure they got their beauty sleep.

All three kittens were put in a harness and went downstairs at different times.

Salsa HATED it!! He lasted about 30 minutes....airplane ears the entire time....before mom took him back upstairs. He was perfectly relaxed in the room and was out and about when people came to visit (which they did), but being around the noise and the crowds was not his thing.

Taquito wasn't so sure about her first time out. It was the opening event, which was an ice cream social. But the music was pretty loud. Mom waited until the next afternoon and took her down to the exhibit hall and then to a session with Alana Greylak from Cat in the Fridge about photos and video on your phone (mom learned a lot). It took her a few minutes, but Tostada relaxed....and even dozed during the session.

Queso was a hit though. He was unfazed by everything. What mom terms "bombproof". In fact, he went to the awards ceremony and slept through most of it on the table. MOL He was passed around and kissed and held and was great about it all. He even walked down the hall with mom a couple of times.

All three loved being out in the room and slept on the beds with mom and Miss Julie every night. They are going to make some families very happy.

  8. Mom Paula had such a great time with the kittens and Jeanne! She was thrilled she was able to sit by Taquito during a session and hold Queso during part of the awards ceremony. They are going to make wonderful fur children to some lucky family.

  12. The head peep had such a good time with your Mom and the rest of the cat bloggers -- and dog and ferret bloggers, too! She says it's a good thing that Queso wasn't ready to adopt, or else she would have come home from Nashville with a new family member!
