Early Thursday morning, Prudence's Mom picked TW up—a
TW and Prudence's Mom, Theresa, soon ran into Boris Kitty's Humanz2, who brought Edgar Kitty and then George the Duck's Typist, who had George with her! There are just a couple of Twitter anipals that we consider Legends and he's right at the top of the list.
She met a bunch more anipal peeps at the reception later that evening. I'm afraid if I start naming them, I'll leave somebody out and they won't like us anymore. Nevertheless, she was delighted to meet and talk with all. She did meet the other legend—Bunny Jean Cook's Mom too! I was inspired by Bunny Jean's set at the first Pawpawty I attended to try my paw at becoming a DJ. TW shared a hotel room with Theresa and Maggie T Kat and Parker S Kat's Mom. I apologize to them for all of HHGutt's flies and Mexican music. I can't believe she bought that [censored] along instead of me! [ED: And I apologize for the political incorrectness of my cat. We have nothing against Mexican people OR cats, do we CK?]
What else can I tell you? Her favorite speakers were the guys from Rescue Ink. If you abuse animals, they'll mess you up REAL good. Heh heh. She went to a bunch of seminars and realized that this little blog is a very tasty, er, tiny fish in a vast ocean of bloggers vying for attention. We all know there are 24 hours in a day and no one has time to read and comment on them all. Likewise, she realized that advertisers are gonna want more than my 150 loyal followers to make a career of this. It's back to pounding the pavement for her. She also learned how hard it is to self-publish and sell to more than your immediate family. Her balloon was bursted but she still did have a super time being away from me, I might add.

On the last day, they had a raffle for an i-pawd and Prudence's Mom WON! She already had one so she GAVE her older i-pawd to me! Can you believe it? This world is not such a cold place, after all. When you have a chance, visit her blog and thank her for her kindness. Concats all around!
Another high point in TW's weekend was attending the Anipal Times pawty with my Twitter furrend's—@Seabasscat, @bunnyjeancook, @cokiethecat, @tildatoo, and @MaggieTKat—peeps. She said they shared lots of gossip and laughs. They even put in conference calls to @Mariodacat and @PepiSmartDog! Then on Sunday, they were joined for breakfast by @BZTAT, the famous artist who painted the mural for Okey's Promise, which is a great cause, linking animal abuse with domestic violence against women and children. Please go to their site and become a Promise Keeper. To make it easier for you, I've put a widget on my sidebar to direct you to their KickStarter page.
One thing she was NOT particularly pleased with was the noms. When it comes to eating, she's as finicky as I am. She can't complain too much since virtually all the meals were included in the admission price, which was good because the hotel food was pricy even for a New Yorker. $15 for pancakes or A waffle! WTF? They promised a pizza pawty after the movie and it was hors d'oeuvre pizza that made ghetto pizza (Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Dominos) sound appealing. Sorry, New York pizza has us spoiled.
To assure that I'd let her back into the house, TW went around the last day and lifted a ton of goodies for me. She took anything that wasn't nailed down. Is that a chip off the stunning cat, or what? OK, so she didn't go that far, for those vendors who may be reading this. After all, food has an expiration date. I'm happy to report she's batting .500 thus far. While I dug into the Wellness Complete Health Chicken Recipe, I stuck my nose up at the Crave Holy Cow with beef, cheddar and milk flavors. I liked the Wellness because it had triple cranberry and I'm a big fan of cranberries in kibble—or in general. I have a confession to make—remember, what goes on in this blog, stays in this blog OR ELSE!—I sat in the cranberry sauce the first time the peeps had it after I was secure enough to jump on the table. Just plopped right on down. Really. The peeps thought it was hysterical. The idiots still laugh about it. It was kind of cold and oozy, not to mention sticky, which I found out later.
The good news for my readers is that I have FOUR pouches of Crave Holy Cow to give away! I'm gonna give it to the 4 funniest comments to this blog—and I get some funny comments, trust me. This giveaway is for cats who's peeps WEREN'T at Blogpaws. Oh yeah, the OTHER catch is that, since it's food, we can't ship it out of the country.
Sorry this post is so long, but I wanted to get everything in. We haven't blogged for a while so I felt I owed you a nice long one. Have a good weekend and don't do anything I wouldn't do! HAH!
