Attending My First #BlogPaws Conference

On Wednesday, I arrived in Phoenix, Arizona to join hundreds of other pet lovers at the 2016 BlogPaws Conference. I came back to my home in Texas yesterday, on Sunday. I have been blogging for almost four years now and it's always bugged me a little bit that I've never actually met the other people online who I interact with almost on a daily basis.

I had an idea of what I should expect, because I've followed the BlogPaws conference every year that I've been a blogger. Witnessing it in person is unbelievable though.

I met many pet bloggers who I've known online for years. I also met many pet bloggers that were new to me. I didn't know if I would be nervous meeting others or not. But, when you see someone you recognize it kind of just feels natural to walk up to them, say hello, and chat like you've known each other forever. Often times, you're greeted with a big welcoming hug too!

For today's post, I'll be focusing on the other pet bloggers I met. I took tons of photos and met lots of pet bloggers, but I know I'm still missing pictures of some people and their pets.

We're Off to #BlogPaws!

Since I won't be bringing my pets with me to the BlogPaws conference in Pheonix, Arizona today, I made some flat pets instead. We used this tutorial to make our flat pets.

Surprise Kitten

Is there really any better surprise than a kitten? Probably not. And as luck would have it, I came home on Saturday night to a surprise kitten.

My family and I had just come home from a birthday party on Satruday evening. My boyfriend is setting some things on the kitchen table and asks me, "What is this?" I had no idea what it was so I walked over to see.

There was a tiny brown tabby kitten in a cat carrier with a note. The note was obviously from my dad, but he wasn't at home. He had left the kitten there and went to his lakehouse for the night.

8 Myths About Rats Dispelled For Good

Special thanks to Daisy of Rat Central for today's guest blog post. 


Pet owners worldwide love cute, friendly and cuddly animals… One animal that’s always been criminally overlooked is the Rat. Fancy rats, not to be mistaken for wild rats, are a popular pet in many countries with associations in almost all major English speaking countries.

However there’s still a lot of stigma about these adorable, furry, little delights. In this post I’ll share with you a few myths about rats that might surprise you, I’ll give you the facts and nothing but, and hopefully convince you that a rat might in fact be the right pet for you!
