Mancat Monday: The Flat and the Hat to BlogPaws plus an Award

Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! It’s hard to believe, but the BlogPaws Conference is this week and thanks to Purina, my Dad and Flat Brian will be there, and they are looking forward to seeing everyone.  I am sending one of my hats with Dad, so when you see the flat and the hat do make sure to give them a howdy.

Purina will be hosting to incredible presentations on Friday.  The first is The Link Between Diet and Domestication:  10,000 Years of Dietary Influences on the Canine Genome presented by Arleigh Reynolds.  The second presentation is Pet Welfare in America presented by Brenda Bax and David Meyer (of Adopt A Pet).  My Dad got to meet Arleigh and Brenda during the Purina Pet Blogger event last October in St. Louis so he is looking forward to seeing them again.

Now to change the subject…the Weather Guessers were wrong, imagine that!!!  We did not have a totally rainy weekend at all and we got some wonderful window whiffin’ time.

Also, we received the Versatile Blogger Award from Daddy Kiril, and the fabulous kitties Elvira & Nikita from The Opinionated Pussycat.

versatileaward1If you don’t know them, please pay them a visit.  Daddy Kiril is an amazing writer and my Dad is looking forward to meeting him at BlogPaws.  Thanks gang, we appreciate you!!!

That’s a wrap for today, don’t forget the Opt to Adopt Blog Hop tomorrow.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Our mom is going to BlogPaws too, so she will be so excited to meet you! She is making flat cats of us {{eye roll}}. How embarrassing! But she didn’t think phone photography would enlarge well. With any luck, she will forget them. And thanks for coming to my party! It was so much fun!
