Meowfest & CatCon – Here I Come!

A summer to remember.

Since my birthday is in July, I thought I would bestow myself with one the best birthday presents and take a weekend trip to Toronto, Canada for the second annual Meowfest event. The one-day catextravaganza raised over $10,000 for non-profits animal organizations and got some rescue kitties adopted in the process! The first one last year took place in Vancouver, British Columbia. British Columbia is one the most beautiful and greenest places ever. I decided to go to CatCon in Los Angeles instead. Well, this time, a girl is doing both! CatCon in June and the next week heading to Toronto in early July.

With this 24 degree New York City weather, I needed something to cheer me up and warm me up. Lancelot will not be happy with my absence but he never complains with all the goodies I bring back.

Make it up to me, hoomin, with bribes of treats and toys!

Will you be my Valentine?

Wasn’t a good V-day for me. Started a new job I hate a week ago. It’s a horrible feeling to go into work with fear and dread.

Anyway, I came home tonight and my Lancelot, as always, waiting at the door as he hears the key turning the locks. Of course, he’s hungry but even after he is giving his dinner, he purrs and wants my undivided attention. That’s when I realize. I have a Valentine every day in the form of this lovable and at times crazy cat. He drives me insane with his meowing in the wee hours of the morning for his breakfast; how he is obsessed with the closet; the fact he will meow telling me to get out of bed and be productive because he doesn’t like for me to sleep in. Despite all his quirks, his love and attention are unwavering. No matter how down I feel he is there to pick me up.

Will you be my Valentine, Lancelot? You’re certainly mine.

I blame it on the cat and the closet

Busted!

This past Thursday night was the annual New York Pet Fashion show held at the Pennsylvania Hotel opposite Madison Square Garden. I attended last year and thought it would be great to cover it this year and share with you all. I knew it was in early February but for some reason, I thought time had my back. I would know beforehand to purchase a ticket.

To my disappointment, I completely thought it was going to be held the second week of February. I blame it on Lancelot the Grey, as this Thursday night I came home tired and my cat acted up fooling around in the closet. He’s not supposed to be in that particular closet as it has tools and all kinds of stuff where he could get possibly hurt.

As the wonderful haute couture pets were strutting their stuff down the runway, I contended with a mischevious cat at home. I’ll do better next time, friends.
