Froot Bat Friday


Cornish Rex cats gotta be the best kind of Frootbat kitties, next to the original Froot Bat, Kaze! Kaze's family got divorced and she isn't on the Cat Blogosphere any more, but we always remember her on Fridays!



Our ears are taller than Oriental Shorthair cats ears, but theirs are more flared than ours, so they are both unique AND large!



















Why, our ears even flap like a D.O.G.'s when we shake our heads, as this video clip from a few years ago demonstrates...when kittens were running round our house!

ManCat Monday, Brinkley Hard at Work?


Brinkley is one of our extended family, who you get to see from time to time cuz his family is so good about sending us photos!


As you can see, he fills many positions in the office, from paper weight to equipment maintenance...


But every position requires a lot of breaks for naps...if we could all be so lucky!


Pee-Ess: Kely wanted us to remind you to stop by her new blog and say hello to the old lady kitty that most of you have gotten to know via Teri's Facebook 'Week Day Kely' pix... She's kinda  a Workin' Lady Cat, too!

ManCat Monday, Ambassador Cat (Lady) Style! #BlogPaws



We Mancats of Curlz and Swirlz are often called upon to be Ambassador Pet Me cats, along with our other social activities!

What is an Ambassador Pet Me cat, you might ask? Well, The Cat Fanciers Association has a program where very special cats like us, who are four-legged public relations purring machines, attend cat shows to interact with the public in a warm and friendly manner (this goes for our Teri, too, hahameow).


And speaking of Teri, we are going to let her take over from here to finish this post, to talk about how she has been chosen to be a BlogPaws Ambassador, to help spread the word about the BlogPaws Community and the superb conferences they put on every year!


Teri here! I am very excited (and I'll confess, a little nervous) to announce that I have been chosen as one of four 2015 BlogPaws Ambassadors. I know that part of my job will be easy!


The part where I can say I understand the BlogPaws mission of shaping social media excellence, influence and education one amazing pet parent at a time!

The BlogPaws Community has helped me in so many ways to grow my blog, to learn tidbits that I can use every day, and not the least, to meet and make friends with so many fantastic pet bloggers!


A friend recently asked me if I went back to Oregon every year to visit my family...and I said 'No, but I travel to the BlogPaws Conference every year, hahameow!

I have attended numerous veterinary conferences with less than stellar reviews. But from the get-go, the conferences that BlogPaws puts on far exceeded my expectations!


Everything, from start to finish is professionally done--excellent lodging, sessions that have a wide range of interest, and the social aspect?

I think I would make the conference part of my yearly vacation even if there was no education involved...I'd go just to hang out with the pet bloggers (and their pets).


In fact, I often get so involved with socializing that I end up missing sessions, but learning in a different way, what other bloggers goals and dreams are and it is that sharing and sense of community that helps me be the best pet parent and the best pet blogger I can be!


If you are wondering if you should look into registering for the 2015 BlogPaws Conference, being held in Nashville Tennessee May 28th-30th.... I say follow this link to learn more!

http://blogpaws.com/events/2015-conference/

And watch this video to see what you missed out on last year!



 If you aren't already a member of the BlogPaws Community, join in now and I think that will show you what you've been missing out on!

As a BlogPaws Ambassador, I will be be taking more advantage of the Community, so you'll see me around...Please stop and say hello and let me know if there is anything I can do to get you on your way to Nashville!


And don't forget to join in the #BlogPawsChat tomorrow, 12/09 at 8:00pm EST! Special guest, Pet360,  will be there with fun and prizes, so plan on joining in!

Wordless Wednesday, Twiggy Style


Twiggy is one of our extended family and every once in a while, we get to see her...in photos!


As you can see, she lives an adventurous life, with posh accessories like this stylish scratching post!


And comfortable resting perches, which she shares with her friend, Ruby Foo! It's obvious that is is one of the Loved Pets todays BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop is talking about!


Her family even collects sculptures that remind them of her! That last photo made us smile, cuz our Teri had that sculpture with the tail in the air...but we knocked it over in our zest for life...and it's tail broke off!

Before any of you Loved Pets do any damage, be sure you do the Hop first, hahameow!
