Season 3: My Cat From Hell

It just so happens that I love watching TV, I mean, who doesn't? I watch a lot of shows, so many that I have to DVR them all, just to watch them - since I'm usually not around when they are on TV. One show, that I try not to miss, is Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell, featuring Jackson Galaxy! The newest season starts tonight, Saturday June 30, 2012 at 8 pm EST.

I'll be watching, will you?
And make sure when you watch MCFH, you watch out for Miss Modern Cat, aka as Kate Benjamin, my friend who will be on the show! Kate owns Moderncat, which is a cat lifestyle blog featuring the creme-de-la-creme of cat products. 

Jackson will be checking in all night on Twitter (@JacksonGalaxy) and Facebook and tweeting live during the West Coast premiere.

BlogPaws 2012: Airplanes, Catification & Moki, oh my!

For the first time in seven years, I found myself on an airplane - heading out west to Salt Lake City, Utah, for BlogPaws! Besides being a nervous flyer, I had never been so far away from home, so going to SLC was a big (graduation) treat for me!
My suitcase, back pack, Tiny Tiger purse and flat Piper!

For those of you who don't know, BlogPaws is an online pet blogging, social media community, which holds an annual conference every year. I was lucky enough to attend my first BlogPaws in 2011 in Tyson's Corner, Virginia. There are amazing keynotes, raffles, opportunities to network and talk to popular pet brands such as PetSmart and Hartz (to name a few), as well as interact with fellow bloggers and their pets! Not to mention...the SWAG!

Mom won an amazing basket from Hill's, including a Flip Camera!

I found myself doing many things at BlogPaws. I got to reconnect with many blogging buddies, such as Ingrid King of the Conscious CatDeb Barnes of Zee and Zoey, Stephanie Harwin of CatsparellaAngie Bailey of CatladylandJanea Kelley of Paws and Effect,Robin Olson of Covered in Cat HairTeri Thorsteinson of Curlz and SwirlzCaroline Golon of the Happy Litter BoxPamela Haines with Moo Kitty Finds a HomeKate Benjamin of Modern Cat to name a few, as well as first time meeting Dorian Wagner of Your Daily CuteTamar Arslanian of I Have CatAmy Palmer of Seabass CatPeter Wolf of Vox Felina, Joanne McGonagle of The Tiniest Tiger  and Debbie Glovatsky of Glogirly and so many more (if I forgot you, it's because of tuna brain)

Hanging with Stephanie of Catsparella!

I even got the amazing chance to meet Crystal and Moki, of The Wobbly Cat.

I will soon be doing a post all about Moki and his different ability.

Thanks to Crystal for getting this great shot of Moki and I!

 A special place set aside for bloggers while at BlogPaws, was the Catification Lounge. The lounge was brought to BlogPaws by Kate Benjamin of ModernCat, as well as Jackson Galaxy!

The lounge was full of so many wonderful cat products! I was lucky enough to win a upright cat scratcher and my mom won a shed monster. We have a huge shipment of the swag that we couldn't fit in our suitcase, somewhere in the mail, and I can't wait until it comes.

I would consider BlogPaws 2012 an utmost success! It was great to reconnect with so many of my fellow cat bloggers and make so many new connections. I am ecstatic that BlogPaws 2013 is in Tysons Corner, VA - only 20 minutes away from me, making an easy commute and I can even go home and snuggle with my kitties at night. 

Thanks for reading my review and look for the next few wonderful BlogPaws inspired posts that are yet to come!
