Social Pet Saturday: The Name Game

Happy weekend everyone! It's that time of the week again - Social Pet Saturday! It's been a fun week, but I'm ready for spring break. My daughter will be home from school all week next week. I guess that means I can sleep in some.

Anyways, on to the fun stuff. Let's see what's been happening in the petosphere this week!

Facebook Furbaby

Last week, I shared a kitten from The Kitty Kanteen Feral Cat & Kitten Rescue on Facebook. Well, lucky me that they asked me to name one of the four kittens. I am so honored to be able to name this precious little baby boy.

After a little brainstorming, my daughter and I came up with the name Casper. (She wanted to name him after a pokemon, but we decided Casper might be better.) Isn't he the cutest little furbaby?! I can't wait to see him grow up. 

Social Networking for Dogs

I was on Twitter when I found out about a pretty cool new social networking site for dogs from @ComeWagAlong. It's called "Pack". I set up a profile for Shiner that you can view here. Check it out! It's pretty cool. 

Best of Blogville

First, I want to share a cool new blog I found recently. Well, I think the author found me first so I of course visited and discovered an awesome new hamster blog! The blog is called "Unexpected Hamsters" and there are some really cute hammies over there. Please be sure to visit and say hello! 

My friend Garth Riley from the blog "The World According to Garth Riley" has been practicing some basketball and he's ready for the court! Check out this awesome video of him shootin' some hoops. He's really good.

Sorry I don't have much to share today... I'll admit I didn't prepare for this post as much as I would have liked to because I was busy dying my hair last night. Totally not pet-related, but because I like it so much I just have to share...

The tips are purple.

Enjoy your weekend everyone! 


  1. Just gave Shiner some love on Pack :-)

  2. Great job on your furs opps I mean hair. We loved Garth and his basketball video. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Two thumbs up on the hair. And the basketball dog.

  4. That video is hysterical. He wants to know why the ball goes all the way through. Look at that purple hair. Was that the plan. Have a great week end.

    1. It was the plan, except it's less purple than I wanted it to be ;)

  5. We can't wait for you to share pictures as Caspar grows. Our lovely blue-eyed boy, Madison, passed away two years ago, and we miss having a white furry friend around. The hair color is interesting. Mom loves purple, but says she's not brave enough to try that look. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  6. Cool hair Ann and that kitten so cute

  7. I like your hair too - it's great! ...and Casper is really a cute kitty ;o)

  8. Hey Ann, Thanks for sharing our Casper with your blog! We at Kitty Kanteen have today posted new pictures of all 4 babies on the facebook page...Please everyone come have a look at them....they are 17 days old today!! Charmaine and The Kitty Kanteen Feral Cat and Kitten Rescue!!

  9. The Pack actually introduced themselves last week in the BlogPaws Community and that's when Dakota joined :)

  10. I think Kitshka would be interested in playing with those lovely purple hair ;-)

  11. Casper is a great name for a kitty!! Your hair is terrific :)

  12. Casper is a very good name for this sweet kitten :) And your hair looks cool!!

  13. I think your daughter had the right idea with the pokemon idea ;) I am awful at thinking of names though XD

  14. We'll check out "Pack" but I'd love to know what you used for that color...I love it

  15. Awesome, Shiner. Love your hair, Ann :)
