Cat Writers' Conference!

This past weekend I attended the 18th annual Cat Writers' Association Conference in White Plains, New York. The getting there wasn't easy, but it was a blast to meet my fellow bloggy buddies who have helped me so much in the last few months. 

I got to connect with so many fellow bloggers. My new friend Layla Morgan Wilde from Cat Wisdom 101 featured a picture of the cat ladies (including me) having lunch whic you can see here: here.

I also enjoyed getting the most pawsome swag bag and attending the Westchester Cat Show! Here are some pictures to capture the highlights of my trip.

Awesome swag bag including a litter scoop, tons of cat toys, treats, food, a Bissell Stomp Pad, a calendar and many other useful cat related things!

Another favorite part was meeting Deb Barnes of Zee & Zoey!

Ingrid won the Hart's Chewable Vitamins Award for her article on The Joys of Adopting an Older Cat.

The conference was very useful, I made lots of new contacts and met so many amazing cat writers. A senior in high school could've never dreamed to go on such an amazing trip.


  1. Hello! Very beautiful cat! In November, we also have kittens. Good luck! All the best! Come for a visit!
