Hey, Ernie.  The mom is finally home from BlogPaws.

Yeah, Wally.  Now things can get back to normal around here.  I didn’t like being fed by a stranger and the dad-guy forgetting to clean our litterboxes.

The mom said she had a good time hanging out with “her peeps” as she calls them…y’know…cat-lovin’ people.  But I hear we didn’t win the Nose-to-Nose award for best cat blog, Ernie.

That’s okay…being a finalist was pretty cool…and something we never expected.  Paws up and congrats to Katie, Waffles and Glogirly on their win…and all our other friends that won some of the other awards!

Why don’t you tell everybuddy what the mom did win, Ernie?

Y’mean…the Bissell SpotBot?

Well, yeah…she did win a SpotBot, but I’m talking about the BlogPaws Attendee Nominated Donation.  Every year, each BlogPaws attendee is asked to nominate a shelter, rescue or other pet charity to be entered into a drawing for a special BlogPaws donation.  This year, the mom won the drawing.  She chose PAWS of Michigan to receive the donation.

BlogPaws donated $2000 to PAWS of Michigan!  And the mom got to accept the donation on PAWS’s behalf!

Oh yeah…that was pawsome, Wally!  PAWS can really use the money.  But enough of all that.  What I wanna know is…


What did she bring home for us??

Stay tuned…
