**a post by the momCat Writer's Association, I was able to send in my credentials and get in as a member of the press.
Let me say right now - it was HUGE!! I knew it was big, but I had no idea what I was in for. I don't wear a step tracker, but I can't imagine how far we walked in 3 days. I do kknow the exhibitors took up 355,000 square feet of space though.
I did see some interesting things, took some business cards and flyers that I have to follow up on and took a few pictures as well. What I forgot to do was take a picture of the item I found interesting and then a picture of the booth. Oh well....lesson learned.
the hauspanter booth and visit with Kate. I love the designs they have and everything is very sleek and modern - you know, cat furniture without LOOKING like cat furniture.
Faux Paw Petique that makes unique gifts with cute cats and dogs. They make a lot of different tote bags - mostly of a different material than this one which is a silky type. All easily cleanable with long handles.
There were all kinds of things to see - from food to treats to furniture. You name it, they had it. Heck - there was stuff I hadn't even thought about.
Thursday night Purina honored Dr Evan Antin and mom and Miss Dawn from Lola the Rescued Cat got their pictures taken with him.
It was a LONG three days and I'm not sure I will do it again, but it certainly was fun to see some cat ladies friends and talk to people who love animals. Plus we took Cupcake along Thursday and Friday and that always leads to entertaining conversations.
