Can I Just Have More Meow Time? With #CatWriters You Bet I Can!


Last week was the 23rd annual #CatWriters Association Awards Banquet, held in conjunction with BlogPaws.  The first banquet I attended was in 1998 in Kansas City, a mere 19 years ago. Wow does time fly!

Although I battled delayed planes and late night driving to arrive at the CWA track and banquet on time, it was well worth it. This year’s banquet was one of the smoothest run ever. From the ever-efficient Arden Moore as contest chair to our charming president Marci Kladnik, the kudos to both sponsors and MUSE Medallion™ winners flowed. Congratulations again to all MUSE Medallion™ winners and special award winners. Cat Writers is always great networking, a chance to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones! Here are some pics from the event and a few from the conference itself.

I was especially grateful to get my pic taken with celebrity cat Nala in her Sleepypod carrier. Thanks Nala! 

Deb Barnes was the Human-Animal Bond Award Winner for her Makin’ Biscuits Book. Congrats Deb!

I particularly liked the brightly colored Karma Cat brand cat beds and caves in the Cat Lounge at Blog Paws.
