Fashion Friday!

Coco, the Cornish Rex, at the Just Cats Clinic Open House

Yes, we have been absent from the fashion scene for the past month, at least as far as blogging goes! But I've been busy growing Coco's Instagram presence and am quite pleased with the response! Coco is a very 'visual' cat and Instagram seems to be a good medium for her unique style!

Coco has a new Watermark, designed by the fabulous Debbie Glovatsky of GloGirly fame! It coordinates with the rest of her website, and I think the heart is a nice touch! Just getting through the hundreds of photos of Coco and editing them is quite a task to squeeze into my evenings and weekends!

In fact, it was while doing just that which made me realize I never posted any photos from our glamorous time in Florida last June, attending the Fabulous FurBaby Cotillion! Both Coco and me got to 'dress to the nines' and also got in some relaxation time out by the pool, and it was all for a good cause...to help Florida Yorkie Rescue!

Just to give you a taste, here are a couple of photos taken by photographer extraordinaire, Neely Waring...more to follow next Fashion Friday!

International Cat Day Celebrated 'Round The World!

We hope you took some time out of your busy day to celebrate the human-animal bond with your cats on International Cat Day! 

Also known as World Cat Day, celebrates the bond between people and cats and was created in 2002 by The International Fund for Animal Welfare . Founded in 1969, IFAW (the International Fund for Animal Welfare) work to help save animals in crisis around the world. In more than 40 countries, IFAW rescues individual animals, works to prevent cruelty to all animals, and advocates for the protection of wildlife and habitats.

This sweet photo of a 'cat kiss' is of Coco and Nolo, a kitty we helped rescue from a shelter, and fostered until he found his forever home. It made us feel good to have helped make a difference in a homeless cats life! 

"Saving the life of one animal may not change the world, but the world will surely change for that one animal"

Just found out it's National Hot Fudge Sundae Day today! I had ordered this sweet confection for Coco and it arrived but I haven't had the chance to put the elastic straps on it, so she isn't wearing it...

But I had to post the photo anyway...it's too delicious not to!

But here' a photo of Coco in her Ice Cream hat... Not a Sundae but just as delicious!

Yes,  Coco and I are still Reelin' from the Feelin' of our trip out to Phoenix AZ to attend the BlogPaws Conference, and to keep that feelin', I've been surfing the web looking for photos of Coco!

Fashion Friday, #BlogPaws Style!

Coco, the Cornish Rex, posing for photos at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort

A week ago, Coco and I were attending the BlogPaws Conference, and once again, the BlogPaws team didn't disappoint!

The conference, our 7th (we have only missed one BlogPaws conference!) opened on Thursday and we of course, had to make one of our first stops, The Hauspanther Cat Style Lounge!

Coco did a little 'window shopping' and put a Cat Ladder on her Wish List!

Coco then tootled around in her Pink Catillac, visiting the wide array of vendors in the exhibit hall...truly a nice mix of canine and feline goodies, but think there should be something for the ferrets guinea pigs, bunnies and piglets, too (though we didn't see any bunnies, or piggies or capybaras this year!)

Coco always makes it a point to stop by the Honest Kitchen booth and have a taste of what they are serving for snacks!

And Coco found out that the famous Dr Buzby is one of her biggest fans and they posed for a photo together!

As you can tell from the photos, Coco had about 4 costume changes a day and it was fun for people to stop us and ask 'What is Coco wearing now?' Here she is at the Merrick booth, posed on a red velvet throne in her lovely Belle Diva gown and matching hat with a very vintage feel!

I took about 20 outfits for her, and of course, that also meant the accessories (hats, tiaras, bejeweled leashes and necklaces) to go along with them! We took the time to take some photos around the Sheraton Grand Wild Horse Pass Resort, too!

Coco wasn't the only fashionably attired pet at the conference, either! Our DC friends Lexi Liu and Moshe Moshi were there. As were Hemi, Tasha Bella and Nevada, all dressed to the nines, too. and attracting a lot of attention!

And we got to finally meet Summer Samba, the lovely Somali, who is also a Certified Therapy Cat!  Coco had a few outfits that she didn't wear much and she wondered if Summer might be able to fit into them, so we brought them along for her to try on!

She looked stunning in them and we were so pleased they fit. If you would like to see her wearing them and talking all about her BlogPaws experience, here's a link to her blog post with photos! BlogPaws Gifts From My Pals.

So, that's a wrap for our second BlogPaws Conference 2016 experience post! I am sure there are at least enough photos and fun to talk about in a couple more posts! Oh yes, we did actually go to a couple of educational sessions and look forward to putting to use what we learned, too! 

And we have already signed up for the 2017 conference, to be held in Myrtle Beach, SC! Might even bring the rest of the Curlz and Swirlz crew as we can drive to this one! If you are wondering if you'd like to go to the BlogPaws 2017 conference, no better way to whet your appetite than to read others experience at this years conference, follow this blog hop!

Simply Sunday Morning, #BlogPaws Style


It's been another amazing BlogPaws Conference, and the beautiful Sheraton Grand Wild Horse Pass Resort made our stay even more memorable! It's been like a mini-vacation for Coco and I, and we are staying on a couple of days just to soak up the ambiance (and some pool time maybe...)

We flew in last Wednesday morning, and got settled in our very comfortable room. We had 2 (heavy) suitcases, one for me and one for Coco's wardrobe & accessories, and two beds (I like to do that so I have a place to put the BlogPaws swag, LOL! 

video

BlogPaws outdid themselves this year, with a Cat Swag bag filled with unique toys and accessories and a nice variety of food and treats, too! Along with some nice things for 'personal assistants', too.

We then went out to explore the resort, soaking up the Southwestern vibe, and taking a few photos. Calming American Indian music played softly in the background and the decor and setting was inspiring...

Wednesday evening began with a Evening Pre-Event Welcome Reception sponsored by PetSmart and it was fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

But we retired early as I hadn't sleep the night before the early morning flight (always fearful I will oversleep).

Of course, I let Coco get as much beauty sleep as she could, as I knew the next few days would be filled with activity and a flurry of costume changes...at least 4 a day! But as I tell people, as long as Coco is in the comfort and security of the Pink Catillac (her rolling cat bed, lol), she is pretty chill and happy!

Well, that is Day One of BlogPaws 2016! Watch for more news and photos this week, as I took over 100 photos and am busy editing and saving the best, as well as surfing the web looking for pix that others took of Coco! 

And if you'd like to read what other attendees have blogged about their experience at this fantastic conference, just follow the blog hop and live vicariously through them!
