Most of you have heard by now that the swag bag the mom got at BlogPaws was not very kitty friendly.  Yeah…too many dog treats and cleaning stuff…even puppy pee pads!  Sheesh!  The mom gave most of it away to someone who could use it.  But she did manage to pilfer some Greenies and Natural Balance foods and treats…and even a nip toy or two…from the vendors there.


Here’s most of the stuff the mom brought home.  Uh…thanks for the photobomb, Ernie.  ::rolling eyes::

One of the best things we got was our very own swag bag from Curlz and Swirlz…it’s the little gift bag in the picture.  That had all kitty stuff in it including homemade treats!  Thanks, Miss Teri!

Okay, so the swag we got from BlogPaws is on the weak side, but we’re gonna do a little giveaway anyway.  Everybuddy who leaves a comment on this post will be entered into a random drawing to win a fun prize package that we will put together.  One comment per family or household, okay?  And everybuddy is eligible…if you don’t have a blog, make sure you leave us an email address or some other way for us to contact you if you win.  You have until 10pm (Island time) Thursday in which to comment.  Zoey, the She Devil, will announce the winner this Friday.

So comment away…and good luck!

  1. Wow, that’s some serious swag mew have there!!! I’m not so sure about the doggy treats and puppy pads though, hmmmm, but at least mew got a couple of nip toys, so it’s not all bad 😀 it’s amazing how a bit of nip can make effurything seem better 😀



  2. Yup, I had heard that it was very dog orientated this year. I am glad your mum managed to get some treats and toys for you though. That was very nice of Teri to make up swag bags for all of you.

  3. That is very nice of you boys to have a giveaway. Looks like you got some good stuff from Teri and all the other people there. And glad Mom had a good time meeting all the bloggers. Have a great day.

  4. Haven’t dogs got the message that they should have less goodies than cats from Blogpaws – thank goodness your Mom managed to get some things for you.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Still looks like you got some fun stuff. Happy Wednesday.

  6. It’s too bad that the organizers don’t seem to realize that cats outnumber dogs as pets in North America, and perhaps in other parts of the world too.

    Good luck to those who enter the draw — we’ll pass because we already have far too many toys and treats (according to our human).

  7. that is a great photobomb ernie…

  8. That is so nice of you to do the giveaway! We will pass since we were at BlogPaws with you!

  9. It’s the same way in the pet store I work for…HALF the store is designated for the dogs and only a quarter for cats! The injustice in the world! My managers have learned to put the new cat stuff out first though, or I say something to them 🙂

  10. We heard it was geared towards woofies this year but looks like your mom still found some great kitty things! It’s very nice of you to offer a giveaway too!

  11. We agree with Fuzzy Tales comment above! ^^ Looks like you still got a lot of good loot–thanks for sharing the bounty. 🙂

  12. We think it would be great fun to meet fellow bloggers! We plan to go next year 🙂

  13. It’s always amazing when you here that more people own cats (and multiple cats) than dogs but dogs always seem to nose their way to the top—pfft!

    I had no idea about blogpaws and it was right in my neighborhood (the DC area), but it was already sold out by the time I checked it out. I’m embarrassed to say that I actually use puppy pee pads! I put them under my litter boxes as Chunky Lisa while always standing in the litter box, sometimes (okay, lots of times), goes outside the box. So nice to offer a giveaway…thank you.

  14. That’s really nice of you guys to have a giveaway (and good job by your mom getting some extras from the vendors to supplement the not-so-abundant swag)! We won’t enter, since we were at BlogPaws with your mom. 🙂

  15. We do not need swag. I think we still have greenies from last year. We ought to give them to our shelter but the Woman had hopes of having a drawing. Now who would want them?

  16. At least Mom brought some stuff home for you!

  17. We heard all about the how bad the swag bags were from Sparkle. You mom did an amazing job getting that swag together. Good luck to everyone!

  18. That was sure nice of Miss Teri ’cause we hear the pickings were pretty slim for the kitties. Mom wanted to attend but couldn’t Had she gone and come home with so little goodies to spread among eight of us, we can guarantee there would be dissension among the ranks. We’ll look forward to the drawing. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  19. Wow that’s a lot of goodies 🙂 Great photobomb, Ernie, hehehe.

  20. Wow what a great haul!!!

  21. We cat bloggers might need to converge in mass on the next BlogPaws…
    Wally you look very handsome today
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  22. PS I heard BlogPaws is in Las Vegas next year…very near the home of the Katnip Loungers…maybe all 13 of them will crash the bash.

  23. We see some yummy stuff in there! We aren’t sure if Ernie agrees to the giveaway. 😉

  24. I think the consensus all around is that Teri’s little bag ruled!

    Please DO enter me in the contest, and if my name gets picked, donate the goods to your favorite shelter!

  25. Aww that was so sweet of Terri to do that.
    I still lots of good stuff!
    Looks like next years BP is gonna be even better than this one!

  26. FaRADaY: We agree, Teri’s bag ROCKED the Cashbah!
    Maxwell: Dood. The Casbah?

    Allie: And we love the idea Sparkle had to enter us so we can have it donated to your shelter!

  27. Not entering the giveaway 🙂 But just wanted to say that Wally looks so cute with his paws nicely tucked in 🙂

  28. You know we have read about the bad swag bag from almost everyone who went! Nice of you to have a give away.

  29. Enjoy your goodies. >^..^<

  30. Oh we live in the UK so we can never enter these giveaways.. but boy am I drooling.. Yum..I am a deprived 2 year old Collie, I live mostly on the street as Alfie the furball ( cat ) keeps locking me out of the cat flap, I can hardly walk as I am soooo under nourished, he eats what little food is put out for me.. xxooxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  31. It sounds like most all of the cat bloggers were unimpressed with the swag bag… and that the BlogPaws folks need to get the manufacturers to step up their game on the cat side of things!

    We think that meeting all of the other cat bloggers sounds like a lot of fun, and our head peep is hoping (fingers crossed) to make the trip next year.

  32. Did I hear something about a fun prize package ?!

  33. Like Ernie, we think that’s quite a goldmine you got there! We love fun prize packages!

  34. Puppy pee pads? PUPPY pee pads?? MOUSES!


  35. Well, we were so excited we hit the wrong key after we filled in our info, but fortunately we were returned here for lack of a comment. So we’re commenting before publishing this time. 🙂

    Buddy, Merci & Sam are open-mouthed that you got all that dog swag and didn’t like it. But they’re dogs.

  36. Whoa! Your Mom got nip toys? Nice going. TW has put together one of the catty stacks and I love it. She didn’t think I would go in it. Actually, she hoped I wouldn’t cos there’s no room for them in our tiny condo. I almost feel cheap trying to win more stuff but, hey, this ghetto cat deserves it.

  37. That’s very generous of you to do a giveaway. Hey Ernie, are you going to be able to part with the goods?

  38. How disappointing that the swag bag wasn’t more kitty friendly!

    Your pal, Pip

  39. We sure hope BlogPaws will do better next year!!

  40. Hi Cute Wally! LOL about Ernie getting in the picture. Yep, we heard from other bloggers that the BlogPaws swag bag was way too dog friendly but that’s great that your mom got some good stuff in spite of that. How nice that someone made their own to hand out! It’s so nice of you & your mom to share!

  41. A prize package to win. Count us in!

  42. Wow! That’s a lot of stuff….puppy stuff, that is! But Ooooo! Greenies *swoon* We’re glad you knew someone who could use the other stuff. Purrs….

  43. Hey! That looks a lot like our giveaway! Too bad we don’t have a she devil. Oh wait . . Julie! (We aren’t entering the giveaway, just saying hi.)

    The mom was wondering how Zoey’s, er, plumbing was doing.

  44. WE will take annything free! Iffen we don’t like it, we know some kitty or woofie what does…

  45. Hi Wally! We are sorry to hear there was so much doggie stuffs in the swag bags this year. Maybe next year, they will put more kitty stuffs in them!

    Nevertheless, it looks like your mom brought you home some nice stuffs. 🙂

    Carmine, Milita, and Jewel

  46. you know I was there so don’t enter me….just wanted to come over and say that is a great idea and to say HI to you!!! ((((hugs))))

  47. It’s me again! MOL

    I love your blog and think mew deserve The Purrfectly Pawesome Blog Award!


    Basil xox

  48. We will purr that next year the swag is better…we’re sending our mom with high hopes. That’s awesome that Teri was able to save the day with her own swag for her pals.

  49. Thank you for having a giveaway, hope it extends as far as England. If not, it still nice that you’ve done this, and hope your mom enjoyed her visit to Blogpaws.

  50. OMC!!! Wally! Your Mom rocks! Mom Linda wants to know how the heck she got all that kitty swag? Mom didn’t get nuttin’. Well, she did bring home some cleaning stuff YOUR MOM got for her….we need to clean some spots where Leo up chucked. Mom wouldn’t have even had that without Miss Sue! I don’t want to enter, cuz I am so picky ’bout my treats. I just wanted to let you know Mom is home and we hope to bring Leo home late today. But he has had a ruff two days and they are doing an ultrasound this morning. Oh, and can you have Miss Sue send mom her email so she can keep in touch and maybe a phone number too?? Paw pats, Savvy

  51. Hey Wally!
    It looks like you scored a MUCH more impressive haul than ME!
    All I got was a couple bags of treats, a NON-nip filled toy and some lousy t-shirt. ha! …Oh and a bunch of big black bells. What’s up with THAT???

    ; ) Katie

    P.S. Please give our entry to another kitty. Even though our so-call swag was what it was, we’d like other kitties to have a chance at your prizes. : )

  52. Wow you got spoilt 🙂

  53. We got our own swag from BlogPaws, so we don’t need any more. We are even playing with that little microchip cat toy. But our mom really enjoyed meeting your mom and all the other blog moms and dads!

  54. We got lots more swag cause our mom is a klepto! Ahahahaha!

    Oh, that’s not funny . . .

  55. We is bettin yoo is happy yoo no have woofies. Ours would has pranced and danced and whined and begged fer all dat woofie stuff. Great snag on the treats fer yoo guys!

    We is sorry the Mom is late in helping to answer our blog comments. She’s a mad person mixing up lotions, salves and whatever else she makes fer her big convention next month.

    Fanks fer stoppin by!

  56. Boys how sweet of you two and Zoey. Here’s a kiss! (I buttering up!)

  57. Thanks for letting us see the swag. We are a bit late for the contest and Dad makes us treats so maybe we will send him next year with a big bag of that and our homemade cat food for all our pals
    Blog on

  58. hey, what’s that blogpaws thing in the back??

  59. Oh exciting! My 3 babies would love to win some treats! 🙂
    The common denominator at BlogPaws seemed to be a lack of cat stuff… I’ve been reading the updates from everyone and it’s the same story each time. We had a similar type show here in Canada and it was the same thing – gearded towards dogs.
