My 18 month old, Violet, loves animals - especially cats. Whenever she sees Honey Delite or a cat on TV she says "nyow". Supposed to be "meow" but pretty close. She also does this when she sees dogs or our pet rat, Nibblet. Surprisingly, she is REALLY good with animals. I'll have to share a video one day of how she handles Nibblet.
Anyways, she saw all the doggies and was meowing at them. The dogs seemed to enjoy trying to lick her Cheetoh fingers too. This lady had a cat in her backpack and let her pet it. My mom decided to put it in her stroller. The cat was very nice and so was Violet.

Of course, there weren't many cats there. These two gorgeous cats are Blue Moon and Moonshine. They were probably some of the sweetest cats I've ever met. Lily enjoyed petting them. They are actually available for adoption from Austin Siamese Rescue right now.

Like I've already said, we saw TONS of dogs. Lily had a fun time giving them all pets and scratches. Here she is petting a smooth Collie.

Below is T-Bone and Brisket. They were both pretty cool dogs.

We stopped at this Puppy Kissing Booth to give this cutie pictured below some love.

One of my former co-workers who helps with Adopt-a-Bull rescue in Austin is fostering this handsome dude. His name is Smiley.
Lily got to pet a therapy dog named Maddie.

I wish I knew more about this Dachsund girl, but I don't. She was a sweetheart and was practically jumping into my arms.
Recognize that cute little Westie? It's Preston from Preston Speaks! Preston and his mom were very nice and we got to talk to them for a few minutes. She's the first pet blogger I've had the chance to meet in person, so that was pretty cool.
Speaking of famous pups, the Pit Boss - Shorty Rossi - was at the Austin Pet Expo too with his dog Hercules. Hercules is laying on the table behind Shorty who isn't pictured.
Besides dogs and cats, there was also a couple of reptiles at the expo.

And of course, we brought home lots of goodies. My mom was more into getting all the goodies than I was, so I took a picture of her loot. I got some too, but not as much as her.

So as you can see, it was a really fun experience and I hope I can attend more events like this in the future! I know it's Wordless Wednesday, but maybe the abundance of cute photos will make up for my abundance of words.
Thanks to BlogPaws for hosting the Wordless Wednesday blog hop!
