Fashion Friday?? Leapin' Leprechauns!


I usually dress in Haute Couture, and am not a Hot Mess! But in the spirit of those who drink green beer and sing silly ditties about leprechauns, I agreed to share these silly photos with the rest of The Tabby Cat Club, as you may also be coerced into wearing something embarrassing today, too!


So here I am, wearing a bow tie as a hat! HaHaMeow! And that curly thing next to me, with the Shamrock on it? It's a WIG!!


Yes, I wear wigs, but this one could be used as a bathroom scrubber--then I'd never have to wear it again! Although...I think that little curl right in the middle of my forehead is kinda cute! But you can tell that even the 'jewelry' that adorned me wasn't enough to make me smile!

And just in case you kitties didn't know... Move over, Saint Patrick! It's St Gertrude's Day, too! She is the patron saint of cats and gardens...something we all love! To learn more about St Gertrude, here's a link http://saintspreserved.com/purr/interesting-links/

Here's hoping all you cats have a day filled with the "Wearin' o' the Green" ...Catnip that is!

#NationalLoveYourPetDay


Coco and I have a very special, very close relationship. I have heard some people criticize because part of the relationship I have with her is dressing her up.

Those who have never met us don't know the true depth of the love and respect I have for Coco. Yes, I have true respect for her! So today, on #NationalLoveYourPetDay, I felt it so very appropriate to share some photos of us together, something I don't often do...because this is her website. 

But I am the person that loves her the most...and I think you can see that in these photos...I hold her close to me, I support her so she feels safe and she is relaxed, with her paws over my arms so in a way, we are both cradling each other and that feels comforting...






So today, whatever brings you and your pet closer together, whatever strengthens the bond and the love you share, spend it knowing that today, we celebrate that loving relationship on National Love Your Pet Day!

#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday, Coco's Video of the Year?


I take mostly still shots of Coco as I don't have a personal assistant to assist me and so most of Coco's videos are actually slideshows...Like this!

But since 2017 is touted to be the Year of the Video...I best be trying to learn some new tricks and get up to speed. Coco's on Instagram, but I've never made an Instagram Stories video...maybe that's a good place to start! Here's a BlogPaws story all about Instagram Stories...Go take look! 


And it might be fun to join in the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, because this week theme is The Year of the Video!

Fashion Friday! Photo Shoot Success!



Yes, we know it's been over a month since our last post! Maybe the title of this update should be called Fashionably Late Friday! It might be hard to tell from the photo above, but that is Coco decked out in her Howloween costume, for which she won 'Scariest Costume'..

I know it doesn't look frightening at all, since it's girly and pink, but it does have skull & crossbones on it, as does her pillbox hat. I decorated her Pink Catillac, too and think it has a Morticia Addams kind of look to it!


This next photo was taken on an outing to historic Occoquan, Virginia and the window display caught my eye and think it makes for a stunning backdrop with a vintage look and she is wearing that Howloween costume contest winning dress, too!


Then last weekend, we paid a visit to my favorite Christmas time places to visit, Merrifield Garden Center. Visiting a nursery with a cat? Yes, they are very pet friendly.

A couple of years ago, I took some fabulous photos of Coco, posed in the midst of their holiday decorations and multitude of decorated Christmas trees, all in different themes. In fact, one of the photos won Coco the coveted title of PawVogue Fashionista 2014! You can read an article about that by Jody Miller-Young, of Bark & Swagger fame:


This year,  Coco has some stunning couture to wear and I think the photos turned out well, what do you think?










And then to round out a photogenic weekend, Coco and I went to a holiday photo shoot by Sabrina Moore, of Dirty Paw Photography. Sabrina had met Coco before, at one of the Wigglebutt Warriors Gala Fundraisers, HollyWoof. So we were pleased to be able to have a sitting with her this year! Sabrina does so much to help shelter pets find forever homes, by providing photo sessions free of charge to local rescues and shelters!

As I didn't have any Thanksgiving holiday/Autumn themed photos of Coco, I decided to dress her in one of the pretty dresses that our friend, Stacy Hurt, made for Coco for the last BlogPaws conference. This next photo was my favorite of those that Sabrina took, with Coco looking so elegant in a dress of vintage fabric!


And for fun, we also did a Merry Christmas photo, which would make a nice Christmas card, don't you think? It only looks snowy and cold, with Coco looking sweet in her pretty dress with a beribboned  ruffled skirt and silver doves on the bodice.


Well, I think that about catches you up on the fashionable fun Coco and I had this past month! This weekend, Coco and I are off to a cat show in Maryland and the theme is Santa Paws and of course, Coco will be strutting her stuff in some of the holiday finery featured in the photos we shared today.

And we will have for sale pawtographed copies The Adventure's of Coco Le Chat, The World's Most Fashionable Feline, the lovely children's book featuring Coco. In fact, now is a purrfect time to mention what a wonderful Christmas gift the book makes! If you would like to purchase a copy, visit Coco's Shoppe to read more about it! Coco's Shoppe

#BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, Coco Style!


Even though Coco's blog has been quiet , we both have been busy socializing and having fun at pet-centric fundraisers...something that we love to be involved in!

We have attended three events recently to support animal rescue, the first being the Homeless Animal Rescue Team's Wine Wag Walk event at Quattro Goomba's Winery. Fellow animal lovers gathered to support animal rescue and Coco had a booth there, showing off her fashion sense! And Coco donated a couple of books to the H.A.R.T. raffle prize table, and sold another copy to one of the attendees. 


And then we ventured into Washington DC to be a part of a fundraiser for the Washington Humane Society at Whiskey and Whiskers at One Eight Distilling. We had a blast! Great drinks, delicious food and lots of pets and pet-loving people! Here's a slideshow I found of some of the fun had by all!




And then to top off October, we (the entire cat family!) traveled up to Altoona PA to our 3rd Annual Central PA Pet Expo, and it's one of our favorite pet events every year! 





Joining in the BlogPaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop is something else pet-centric that is fun to join in, too! And November is time to celebrate National Senior Pet Month (Coco says age is just a number!)
