TW got back from the BlogPaws social media conference Monday. She needed a cart to wheel everything upstairs although she's only unpacked her stuff. Figures, right? She said she had to wash her clothes. I'm still waiting to see what I got besides the can of food I've already sampled and liked. Her excuse was she needs to get a photograph of everything together. Like that's gonna happen.

The title of this post was taken from the song Stray Cat Strut, which I'm sure most of you heard of. We're not going to review the conference today but we do have to talk about Kate Benjamin, the Cat Lounge, Hauspanther and the Felix Katnip Tree Company. They've got cat class and style for sure. I don't want to waste another day without extending them my warmest and most sincere thanks.

During each BlogPaws conference, Kate sets up the most wonderful Cat Lounge. This year was by far the biggest and best with cat products from all over the world. There was stuff for humans, stuff for cats and even a display of cat style set up by Teri Thorsteinson, who's the expert in that topic.

Plush CK got to spend time looking at her favorite items in the Cat Lounge.

All through the conference, Kate runs a giveaway. It's usually random but this year, she axed us to write down the three things we loved the most in the lounge. The last day of the conference, Kate went through the entries and actually GAVE us one of the items on our little list. TW took home this amazing Felix Katnip scratching post! She never expected to win something so wonderful for me! Plus, she got to bring home the Kitten Tote from Triple T Studios™ that she's always admired but couldn't work into the budget.

As soon as TW brought the scratcher into the condo, I started to work out on it. Sisal is the best material for scratching.

Thank you so much Kate, Hauspanther, Felix Katnip Tree Company and Triple T Studios for your generosity! This little ghetto kitteh appreciates it.

It was so nice to finally meet TW! Looks like you scored pretty big with that scratcher. I picked up a bracelet for my older daughter. I did have my eye on those pink cat shoes though... Cat Lounge was amazing this year and last year. So much cool stuff there. They do a good job.

The mom says the Cat Lounge was Da Bomb this year. We were lucky enough to score one of those wool pet beds. Pawsome!

Wow! I wish I could have seen the Cat Lounge this year - I can't wait until next!

Congratulations on the win!

What great looking cat stuff! We're so sorry we missed seeing TW AND the Cat Lounge! She made quite a haul for you. Love your scratcher! We looked it up online and it's so clean and sleek looking. One of ours is showing a lot of wear and we're thinking of maybe getting one of those. Do you like the color you got? It's between that and the walnut for us. (I think the color you have is called Xanadu...wonder if they got purrmission from Olivia Newton John?)

That is one awesome prize. I'm sure you are going to destrenjoy it. You are a scratchy cat, aren't you

Carma Poodale said...

ooh we were eyeing that scratching post. So happy to hear that Kate gave it to you. When ma redid the cat trees in the house , she used sisal too. Didn't know it came in so many sizes and cost so much. We now know why quality cat trees are so expensive.
Love your disclosure. BOL!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

The cat lounge was amazing this year! Or so mommy tells us, anyway. She came home with a few great items, too. She didn't need a cart, though. But she had to drag her 50 lb suitcase up to the 3rd floor.

Eastside Cats said...

CK, that scratcher is way cool! Glad your momma scored some stuff!

Tamago said...

Wow, all these kitty items make me want to go to the conference some day! How great you got the scratching post. It looks pawsome!

The Cat Lounge was really exceptional this year! I don't have a cat anymore, but this made me wish I did. What a wonderful Lounge, they really outdid themselves. I'm sorry our paws didn't cross at the conference this year, I hope you had as good a time as we did!

The Menagerie Mom said...

Oh, just look at all of those goods. And that cat scratcher is sheer purrfection, CK. Just imagine how well you can sharpen your claws on that thing!

Kitties Blue said...

Cat Style Lounge is always the best, but this year was incredible. It always helps to drive when it comes to having the space to bring home a real winner of a product. Like us, you hit the jackpot, C.K. Our tower/sphere has not been empty since Mom set it up. Enjoy your scratcher.

Jean Neilson said...

Wow...talk about hitting the big time. You got quite a few goodies there CK. Enjoy.

OMC, that's so awesome, CK! How nice that Kate gave that scratcher to TW to bring home for you. And we can see you are enjoying it LOTS! :)

That look on your face with the scratcher... I loved the Cat Lounge when I went last year. Looks like you have a lot of stuff to go through, CK.

Jane H said...

What wonderful pics of the cat lounge, I was in awe of all the amazing products. I can see your cutie pie is enjoying her scratching post! So happy you got some awesome items. I fell in love with those purses, might have to splurge on one, someday.
