Kitty in a suitcase
How many of you have had your kitty in a suitcase while you are trying to pack? For Paws, we are packing to go to the BlogPaws conference in Myrtle Beach, SC. We’ve signed up for the Pathfinder’s seminar with hopes of taking Paws for Reflection to a whole new level on the blogosphere.
Today, we share our kitties in a suitcase on Kitty Blue’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop. We ask that you visit all the pawsome blogs that are participating in today’s blog hop, and find out what their kitties have been up to this week.
Taking blogging to a whole new level
We’ve been blogging at Paws for Reflection for five years, and while we are very happy at bringing readers concrete info about cat health, rescue, and news, while sprinkling in some info about travel and humor, we need to get a bigger return on our time investment. We know this year’s Pathfinders seminar at BlogPaws will help us achieve that.
Since being accepted into the workshop, we have been the recipient of a lot of good karma. Not only have we met some dynamo fellow participants, we also have connected with the Fix Felines by Five initiative, and we know Esther Mechler of Miriam’s Dream is going to keep us accountable. We are looking forward to promoting this ever so important cause which can create a whole new status for cats. By having spa/neuter done before the first heat, it will reduce cat overpopulation by mega numbers. If there are less cats, it will elevate their status.Rather than being a dime a dozen, they can be valued for the special creatures they are.
Lots of positive energy coming our way
Paws is a firm believer in positive energy attracting more positives. Sometimes it seems when things go wrong, it’s an avalanche. Life’s full of hills and valleys, and well we think we’re heading in the right direction.
In the past month, Paws has teamed up with some freelance writing gigs, and we hope to build on those numbers. When Paws first started our blog, our goal was to be published in Cat Fancy, the kingpin of publications in the cat world. We had two cover stories, right before it was discontinued and molded into Catster Magazine. We continue to write for the Cat Fancier’s Association’s CatTalk.
Earlier this year, Paws for Reflection was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for Best Cat Blog: Health and Other Issues by the International Cat Writer’s Association. We also have another huge recognition we only found about last week; however, we’re going to hold off talking about it until the final announcement is made.
Kitties want to go to BlogPaws too
The tides are turning, and there’s tons of positive energy coming our way. The kitties don’t realize this. They only know there’s something up, with all the stuff, including suitcases strewn around their living area. They don’t like it when their Mummy leaves, but they’ll probably sleep for most of the week. Their human aunt, who well, isn’t a cat person, is going to be sure they have plenty of food and water. She also has been trained to give Pink Collar her medicine for her arthritis.
Even though I’m going to have a whirlwind trip opening up lots of potential opportunities, I’ll miss my kitties. I know they’ll snub their little noses at me when I return, because I had the audacity to leave them. Leave us – how could you? Really? But they’ll get over it, and will be snuggling with me by the end of the day.
