Pet Bloggers Journey

 Another blogger has challenged others and mom decided we need to participate:

Except maybe Ivy

1. When did you begin your blog and what do you currently write about?  

August 10, 2009. We write about fostering kittens, my cats, rescue, education and cats. Ha

2. Name one thing about your blog or one blogging goal accomplished during 2020. 

Mom had a job change in November 2019 so the goal was just to try to keep post in 2020. We had to cut back from every day but managed to keep posting as often as I could.

3. Which 2020 post was most popular? Why do you think it does so well? 

A post about Chanel and Goldfish - and no idea why it got the most views. 

4. Biggest blogging challenge in 2020 and how you tackled it. 

2020 was just weird. It was hard to try to focus on being positive about posting and kittens when the real world was experiencing so many negative things. It helped to remember that people were following us and reading as an escape.

5. One thing you learned in 2020 that can help other bloggers. 

Do what you can. And know that everyone is frustrating with the changes to readership and technology. Focus on what you know and what you feel you can contribute.

6. Top three goals for 2021. 

Get back to a regular schedule. 

7. In a perfect world, where do you see yourself and the blog in one year? 

Honestly, doing the same thing. We never got into this for money or fame or anything like that. For us it is about tracking the kittens that come through here, our personal stories and spreading the word about rescue.

8. If you have $1,000 to spend on your blog, how would you spend it? 

Actually, mom would love to spend it on my foster room. So much of what we write about goes on in there and the room could work so much better. 

9. What is one skill you would like to learn or improve? 

No doubt there is much to learn about SEO and increasing readership and followers.

10. If you could ask the pet blogging community for help with one challenge you're having with your blog, what would it be? 

That's tough. We love being part of this community and we know we can always reach out to fellow bloggers with issues. 


  1. As if we'd spend $ on the blog...we'd spend it on our kitties!
    As much as I adore the blogging community, and posting about fun stuff...I've got to remain employed; that was the main goal of 2020 (and it was nip and tuck there!), and the same for 2021.
    But I must thank you for all you do for the cats in your community! Hats off to you!

  2. We love your blog and the content so just keep up with what you are doing. Purrs

  3. Great answers, I have to say, I love this site and you shouldn't change a thing. I also agree with spending the money on the kitties - hoorah!

  4. ewe wee kittenz bee price lezz !!! =^..^= ♥♥♥

    we due knot even noe what SEO meenz ☺☺☺

  5. We think your blog is purrfect! And we tend to much like Ivy....nap time.

  6. I love reading about your fosters - and your permanent residents too. So keep up the good work.

  7. We love your blog, and are glad you blog whenever you can. We love reading about your fosters, too!

  8. 2020 was a weird year for us too. We're looking forward to a better more social 2021. If you're looking to learn more about SEO and increase readership one simple approach I take is to answer my readers common questions in a detailed manner applying my own experiences. All the best to you in 2021!

  9. First I have to thank you so much for what you do!! I myself have a huge place in my heart for feral cats and have been an advocate for them for over 10 years now in our community. I can see your love for these cats in your posts. I really enjoyed your website as I took a tour around it. I love how positive you have been navigating throughout the pandemic and the love you have for these cats. As for you goal this year on learning more about SEO don't let it scare you. I started out picking away at things until I was able to see the increase. I did a few free courses on Udemy to get me started and it went from there. We all want traffic and I think its a big challenge for many of us. With a good SEO it will allow you to get a steady flow of fee traffic and worth working on. Keep up the fantastic work! Wishing you health and prosperity this coming year!

  10. That was interesting. I would spend the $1000 on the kitties too. The blog doesn't need the money.

  11. Thank you for all you do for the kitties. I wish you all the success. If you learn about SEO, you can pass the info along cos it's all Greek to us.

  12. Love the idea that you would spend $1,000 on a foster room for your kitties. That is refreshing to hear. 2020 must have been difficult for shelters and fosters, as well. Someday, I will foster, but not right now. I lost my Siamese sweetheart in April, and that plus the sheltering at home made it a very difficult year. Keep up your great work and I hope you can help many, many kitties. Purrs.


We love to hear from you.....
