Caru® - Pet Food Like Homemade

Those of you who follow our blog regularly know how finicky Brulee can be when it comes to wet food. She prefers dry kibble, but I know how important it is to feed her a wet diet for appropriate hydration. I'm always on the look out for a high-quality food that she likes and is good for her.

National Pralines Day

We know National Pralines Day is meant to honor a confection made from nuts (whether in whole pieces or ground) and sugar syrup. Pralines may also refer to any chocolate cookie containing the ground powder of nuts. Mom Paula's love of this delicious confection is the reason her first Persian cat was named Praline.

Today is also Cat World Domination Day, so we chose to step aside today and let Mom Paula talk about the "kitty-before-us" who started it all, Miss Paula's Sweet Praline, aka, Sweet Praline.

The Original Static Kitty

We love Brulee's Sunday Selfie today because it reminds us of a story that happened several years ago where Brulee earned her nickname - The Original Static Kitty.

Veterinary Appreciation Day™

Today is Veterinarian Appreciation Day and we want to take a moment to thank all of the veterinarians for their tireless efforts and care they give to help keep us healthy and happy. Veterinary Appreciation Day™ was created by Trupanion Pet Insurance in 2015 to recognize veterinary professionals and the wonderful work they do. From the front desk to the exam room, veterinary teams offer compassion, advice and care for our furry family members.

Clip the Tip and Not the Quick - Zen Clipper™

Everyone knows it's easy to clip the nails of cats (and other pets)! Right?!? Seriously, it's important to keep your cat's claws trimmed and it's not always an easy task.

I grew up with dogs who lived outside and didn't get my first cat until I was in my twenties. We didn't clip the nails of our dogs and I don't think I even knew I needed to clip the nails of my first cat. My first sign should have been when she destroyed two of our sofas.

National Best Friends Day

This is a little throw-back post from our first few days as kittens with Mom Paula. We believe it's a purrfect example of "best friends."

Spacious Hard-sided Carrier with 360 Degree Accessible Design - Catit

°We've shared many pet carriers on our blog in the past and we do prefer the soft-sided carriers. However, many of our readers comment that they need a hard-sided carrier for their cats and wish they could find a carrier that had a large opening from the top or front.

While attending Global Pet Expo (GPE) this year, Mom Paula met with representatives from Catit®. We've shared many products from Catit that are specifically designed for cats and were excited to see the Cabrio™ multifunctional cat carrier.

Experiencing the Cat Writers' Association Conference 2019

If you've followed us the last two weeks, you'll remember we've shared information about the Cat Writers' Association (CWA) 25th Anniversary Conference and Awards Banquet. We're going to turn the blog over to Mom Paula so she can share her experiences at the conference this year.

I became a professional member of the Cat Writers' Association (CWA) and attending my first conference in May 2015 in Nashville, TN. I was new to both BlogPaws and CWA and was a little overwhelmed and intimidated with all of the cat writers I'd admired over the years. I've come a long way in these short five years and now serve as the Vice President of the CWA.
