Hi guys. The mom says one of the best things about the BlogPaws conference is the Cat Lounge. Put together by incomparable Kate Benjamin from Hauspanther, the Cat Lounge displays all of the latest trends in cat-related products…furniture, beds, scratchers, toys, fountains…you name it. And the coolest part about the Cat Lounge is that at the end of the conference, Miss Kate gives everything in the Cat Lounge away to the attendees through random drawings. How pawsome is that?!?

Dharma Dog Karma Cat wool cat bed

This year, the mom was lucky enough to win us this fabulous wool bed from Dharma Dog Karma Cat©. These beds are made by women’s organizations, artisans and family businesses located in Nepal. The only materials used are pure wool, natural soap and water. Everything about the manufacturing process is geared towards sustaining the environment.

We’ve been wanting one of these beds for a long time. When the mom pulled it out of her big traveling box, I immediately had to check it out. Dharma Dog Karma Cat beds are well made, stylish…and let me tell you…really comfy.

Uh oh…looks like my nap’s about to be interrupted. Somebuddy else saw this bed and wants to check it out, too.

This is not how you use the Dharma Dog Karma Cat bed!

Ernie! That’s not how you use this bed! Ooomphffff!

Look at all this swag!

We finally got the mom to unload all the swag she brought home…and there’s a TON of it! That’s because not only was there the swag bag from BlogPaws, but the Cat Writer’s Association…which the mom is a member of…once again joined with BlogPaws and held its annual meeting at the same time and provided a swag bag, too.

Just look at all of this stuff! There’s toys and treats and lots of foodables. Oh, and a few things to keep us healthy. Guys, there’s way too much here for us…so we wanna share some of it with one of you. We’re gonna put together a cool swag bag prize package and have a giveaway in the next week or so. We hope you’ll all stop by and enter.

Thanks to BlogPaws, CWA, Kate Benjamin and the many conference sponsors and brands for all the pawsome swag this year!

  14. Love the great cat head bed!

  15. That’s a lot of swag. That bed looks really comfy. I also love the picture of you and Ernie. Reminds me of Laurel and Hardy.

  16. Mom thinks those are the coolest beds. So happy you all got one, and the kitty one has to be the best. Poor Wally getting smooshed by Ernie. Did Ernie get a chance to to try it out? Don’t forget to leave Kate a comment at Hauspanther about your bed with a link to this post. She’ll share it with her supplier. That’s a lot of swag. Mom gave us one toy out of a bag, and then they went straight to the living room. She will be making selections for friends and Chris’s cat, Tinsley. We have only gotten foodables so far! Enjoy all your loot. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
