Hey everybuddy.  Bird TV is on a commercial break right now.  While I wait for the show to start again, lemme share something with you.

The other day, the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards finalists were announced.  And much to our surprise, our blog was named as one of the finalists in the Best Cat Blog category!  BEST-CAT-BLOG-n2n2015-FINALISTbadgeSeriously, we weren’t expecting this at all.  The lady with the yellow hair had to look at the list a couple of times to make sure it wasn’t a mistake.  There’re SO many great cat bloggers…most of them are our furiends…we’re truly honored to be selected as a finalist.

We’re with some good company in our category, too…the other finalists are furiends with blogs we love and admire a lot:

Cat in the Fridge
The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey

And not only that…some of our other blogging furiends were named finalists in the other categories!  To see the complete list of all the finalists click HERE.  Congratulations to everybuddy!

The BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards winners will be announce in May at this year’s BlogPaws conference in Nashville.  But we already feel like winners.  Thanks to all of you for your furiendship and support.


Okay…it looks like the show’s about to start again.  Happy weekend, everybuddy!
